- John Cornell Memorial Handicap (Str) (Class 4)
- 1m 3y, Good to Firm (Firm in the Home Straight)
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has been doing well in handicaps, winning four of his last six, including here over 7f (soft) last time. Form of that race franked by runner-up winning Victoria Cup on Saturday, so he looks to have decent claims. Trip/ground fine.
Better known for his successes over 7f than this trip, but recorded his first win over 1m at Southwell in January when 6lb lower. That ended a lengthy drought and he has mainly been back in better form since, including here last time. Not ruled out.
Won a 0-85 over C&D (good to firm) this time last year when just 1lb lower and went close from a higher mark twice afterwards. Has been in good form on the All Weather in recent months and handicapper has given her a chance here.
Was dropped in trip to 7f for a Doncaster maiden last time when 200-1 and ran a much better race than he had previously shown he was capable of. Extra furlong looks just about right for him and he is interesting with the champion booked.
1-16 so far, that win coming at Doncaster (7f, good) from 1lb higher in 2016. Went very close here from 2lb higher over C&D last May (when fresh) and not ruled out if able to hit that level again on his reappearance.
Has won 4-15 on the All Weather but is yet to make the frame from five starts on turf. Is on a good mark here based on his efforts away from turf, but as last time's run showed he still has plenty to prove on the green stuff.
