2/1
Second career win, and first for a long time, when coming good in decisive fashion at Windsor last week. Has a 6lb penalty to shoulder, but is in good spirits and has to be considered.

Lightly-raced with only six starts since making his debut in August, 2015. All his runs have come over 7f or further, he is having his first run since being gelded and he has not run for the best part of two years, all of which makes him opposable.

Came good at the sixth attempt when landing a 5½f handicap at Bath last week. Turned out quickly under a 6lb penalty and clearly enters calculations.

Fair effort when runner-up at Southwell in March, but two displays since then have been disappointing. Only victory on turf was achieved with much more give in the ground.

Decent runs at Kempton and Bath on last two starts, but not enough to suggest she is about to return to winning ways off current mark. Hood she wore for the first time on latest outing is retained.

Running consistently well of late without being able to get his head in front. Acts well on this sort of surface and looks sure to be in the mix again.

The winner of 11 races, but getting on a bit now. That said, he was not far behind Hurricane Alert last time and perhaps first-time blinkers will eke out some improvement.

Placed for the first time in nine attempts when a close third under this jockey at Bath last week. Each-way prospects off the same mark with underfoot conditions to suit.

Failed to beat a rival on her first three starts over 6f, but shaped much better last time when fourth of nine at Bath. over 5½f. Prospects off 1lb lower if improvement can be maintained.

Out of the frame in six starts, including on handicap debut at Chepstow recently. Has been dropped 7lb, but needs to show more before being considered.

Betting

Forecast

Porto Ferro (2/1), Mooroverthebridge (5/2), Fantasy Justifier (5/1), Rio Santos (7/1), Executor (10/1), Hurricane Alert (12/1), Spirit Of Ishy (12/1), Silver Penny (16/1), Molly Jones (25/1), Pharoh Jake (25/1), Corporal Maddox (33/1), Swiss Psalm (66/1)

Verdict

Porto Ferro and Mooroverthebridge have claims under their penalties and both Hurricane Alert and Rio Santos look likely to get involved, but a chance is taken with SPIRIT OF ISHY, who showed her first semblance of form at Bath last time and may be improving quickly enough to go well off a lowly mark. Fantasy Justifier would enter calculations if turning out again.
  1. Spirit Of Ishy
  2. Hurricane Alert
  3. Rio Santos
