Needs no introduction around here (Six-time C&D winner) and now makes his second start for a new yard. Shaped as if needing the run last time over C&D and this quicker surface may suit better; drops in grade and below last winning mark.

Two AW wins already to his name this year both over 6f and ran with credit last time out (still looks unexposed). Didn't quite get the run of the race last time out and kept on near the finish; now switches to turf off same mark.

Fair handicapper but hasn't really sparkled since joining this yard (previously with Michael Dods) and was below form again last time. Drops in grade a little here on very different ground but more needed.

Scored once last year at Musselburgh (5f, soft) and goes well there generally. Made his reappearance there after wind op (took strong hold) and finished last but should come on for that run and this run will tell us more.

Dual C&D winner but his losing run was starting to stack up when taking a Wetherby handicap last time returning to form out the blue off a lenient mark. Still looks well treated but does have his quirks and not sure to follow up.

7/1
Not the most consistent but did manage to build on a good Fibresand run when winning at Musselburgh (5f, good) last time. Looks in good heart at the moment but has been one to treat with caution in the past; just 3lb higher for his last win.

Still a maiden but he did shape with some promise on his first run for this yard at Thirsk 5f (good/soft). Dropped out after forcing the pace but showed enough to be considered for something like this off a lowly mark.

14/1
C&D winner who ran well at the weights in a claimer last time out at Redcar (7f, good/firm). Now drops in trip although hasn't really shown enough of late to be considered amongst the leading contenders here.

78-5OR: 45

A record of 0/38 probably tells its own story and this looks a test that is far to difficult for her as she bids to break her maiden.

48-5OR: 45
8/1
Ran one of her better races last time out but had the run of proceedings and the chances are that she will come up short again here. A record of 0/17 hardly being a bet compelling statistic.

Has won twice here with one of those victories coming over C&D off a similar mark, Went with very little encouragement last time out though back with this trainer for the second time and passed over here.

Makes his first start for a new yard but hardly arrives having shown much when last seen. Now dropped to a basement mark but still hard to recommend.

58-5OR: 45

0/11 so far and with very little sign that he's any better than a very poor maiden. Slow away when last seen and well beaten by a few of today's rivals and hard to see him turning that form around.

Betting

Forecast

Only Spoofing (3/1), Imperial Legend (13/2), Foxy Boy (13/2), Twentysvnthlancers (7/1), Highly Focussed (8/1), Lady Molly (8/1), Jessie Allan (10/1), Bronze Beau (12/1), Gaelic Wizard (14/1), Dawoodi (18/1), Griffin Street (33/1), Raise A Billion (33/1), King Of Castilla (66/1)

Verdict

Quite a low key end to the card and six-times C&D winner Bronze Beau drops in grade here and must be respected on his second start for his new yard. Highly Focussed has been running well on the AW and can make his presence felt along with Imperial Legend although he’s not sure to build on his out of the blue Wetherby win. Only Spoofing based on the evidence of his Thirsk effort last time has a race of this quality in him off a mark of 50 but a chance is taken that TWENTYSVNTHLANCERS remains in the same form as his Musselburgh win. He can be a little quirky but has only gone up 3lb for that win and might just be in a good run of form.
