3/1

Rounded off last season with wins at Bath and Chelmsford. Good effort when runner-up over C&D on reappearance, but handicapper has raised him 4lb for that display.

Stable companion of Yafta who was successful on her debut at Newbury and ran with credit in two subsequent starts, one of them in Group company. Open to improvement and is one to note on seasonal reappearance.

Ran nine times as a juvenile, winning twice and generally running with credit, including when fourth in the Redcar Two-Year-Old Trophy. Streetwise and likely to give his running on his return to action.

Winner of two of his first three starts, but pulled too hard when 10th of 11 at Newmarket last time and is fitted with a hood for the first time in a bid to keep him calm. Respected on that earlier form.

Two wins from three starts on the AW, but is 0-4 on turf. Well beaten when last seen at Newcastle in October and has been gelded since. First run as a three-year-old.

Won on debut at Musselburgh, but has failed to add to that success in 10 subsequent starts, four of them at Meydan earlier this year. Has lost his way for the time being and is readily opposed despite a falling handicap mark.

Won his first two races as a juvenile, but was flying too high at Royal Ascot next time and two other displays were disappointing. Questions to answer on return to action as a three-year-old.

Winning juvenile who was having his first run since being gelded when scoring decisively at Doncaster last month. Up 7lb, but is much respected for a stable which has already plundered a good prize at this track this season.

Maiden after six starts, but is not short of ability. Reappearance run at Chelmsford, his first since being gelded, was only fair. but he can be expected to step up on that display off 6lb lower.

Successful at Goodwood as a juvenile and made it two wins from six starts when just getting up in a 5½f handicap at Bath last time. A 3lb rise is fair and she should make another bold bid.

Rounded off last season with victory in a Carlisle nursery, but shot up the weights for that success and has been held, although running with credit, in a couple of novice events this spring. Reverts to handicaps with a fair bit to do off this mark.

15/2

Stable companion of Lucky Lucky Man and looks the main hope for the yard on jockey bookings. Favourite when finishing in mid-division at Chester last time, but that was over 5f and this return to the distance of his only win is a plus.

Won a small juvenile contest at Bath when trained by Roger Varian, but never got involved on his first start for this stable in a 5f Nottingham handicap. Dropped 2lb and goes up in trip, but has something to find.

Off the mark at the 12th attempt when landing a 5f novice contest at Wolverhampton. Much more to do in a competitive handicap, but seems to be going the right way and stays this extra furlong.

Betting

Forecast

Yafta (3/1), Showmethedough (15/2), Midsummer Knight (8/1), Mayyasah (9/1), Tricksy Spirit (10/1), Red Roman (10/1), Rebel Streak (10/1), Nine Below Zero (10/1), Wahoo (12/1), Chagatai (16/1), Encrypted (20/1), Lucky Lucky Man (20/1), Roland Rocks (40/1), Dahik (50/1)

Verdict

Stable companions Yafta and Mayyasah are respected despite being at the top end of the handicap, while Red Roman is experienced and likely to make his presence felt. However, all three may be vulnerable to one lower in the weights and the horse which may fit the bill in that respect is WAHOO, who looked an improved performer at Doncaster last time and can defy a 7lb rise. Tricksy Spirit and Showmethedough make some appeal and are others to consider in an open handicap.
