Stable are a little quiet at the moment although he's quite well drawn for one who likes to be prominent. Usually quite consistent once he finds his form (did too much too soon last time); now just above his last winning mark.

Quirky sort and his overall record of 1/35 probably tells the story. Still in the visor he wore for the first time on his last start he didn't find much last time over C&D (true to form); overall record makes him one to handle with care.

A wind op appeared to work the oracle at the start of the year as he's been running well on the Fibresand (three-time winner). Not seen on the turf since his pre-wind op days but comes here a little off the pace; last two runs below-par.

Unexposed sort who has already won over C&D in maiden on her return from a break last year. Her two starts in handicaps so far have been underwhelming (one on turf/one on AW) with her best form coming over 5f; may do better.

9/1

Had started to gain some impetus on the AW and came good back on turf with headgear reapplied over 5f at Catterick. Looked a little stretched by an extended 5f at Wetherby last time and will do better back over a bare 5f; capable off mark.

Not the most reliable and the losing run is starting to build up now and he ran poorly last time on the AW after 4 months off. Headgear returns here and he's well drawn bit others are more persuasive.

Has drawn an outside stall and while she's run some sound enough races of late she's not the most consistent (usually slow away). First run on turf since last year and returns from a break here; attitude under suspicion.

C&D winner but hardly well berthed in stall 10 but should still strip fitter for his reappearance run at Pontefract (5f, heavy). Hood worn for his last win is still absent but he has slipped below his last winning mark.

5/1

Gets a 3lb rise for his last win over an extended 5f at Wetherby on very different ground (heavy) taking advantage of a drop in the weights. Got the run of the race that day (advantage over the meeting to be prominent); won off higher in the past.

12/1

Dual Newcastle Tapeta winner at the end of last season but 0/8 on turf with no placed efforts either. Her good run of form did come to a rather abrupt end and this mark and a return to turf ask more questions of him.

Betting

Forecast

Gamesome (11/4), Desert Ace (7/2), Racquet (5/1), Flying Foxy (7/1), Dapper Man (9/1), Archimedes (10/1), Young Tiger (12/1), Ticks The Boxes (16/1), Mr Strutter (20/1), Savannah Beau (25/1)

Verdict

If the Paul Midgley yard was in better form Desert Ace could be given a fair chance in this as he’s well weighted on his placed effort over C&D earlier in the year and this looks an easier opportunity. Racquet is another one who looks well-weighted on his old form having had the run of the race last time and he’ll be dangerous if he can grab the lead again. DAPPER MAN now looks right back to form and this return to a bare if stiff 5f will suit him better off a mark that he looks capable off. Flying Foxy is the unknown quantity with Mr Strutter worth keeping an eye on despite his awkward draw.
