Just one win last year when getting his head in front at Wolverhampton. Has fallen 5lb below that winning mark after some poor efforts at the back end of last year but break may have done him good and he's won when fresh before. Interesting runner.

C&D winner in August and has run well on both starts at this course. Seemingly in need of some relief from the handicapper of late but ought to come on for his most recent run at Yarmouth.

Only win last year came in a Kempton handicap but she boasts a similar level of form on turf. Sixth of 10 on return to action in Listed company at the same venue last time and should come on for that but has disappointed at this course before.

Scored on debut at Doncaster (6f) last spring and went close after an 11-month absence (was gelded during that time) at Newcastle over this trip last time. Headgear retained here, but mark looks stiff enough on handicap intro.

Recorded an AW hat-trick in the winter of 2016/17 but yet to win in 15 turf starts and he's above his highest ever winning handicap mark. Hard to fancy.

Not won on turf since 2014 and just one win in 37 starts for this yard. Did run a huge race here off a 14lb higher mark back in 2016 and likely to bounce back at some stage but no signs of a return to form in four recent efforts.

Won back-to-back races over 6f early last season. Starts out for a new yard now stepped back up in trip but stays the trip well and gets the addition of a first-time tongue-tie. Market check advised.

Won on final start for Ed Walker at Newbury in October. Handicapper not given him any relief for two unplaced efforts at Doncaster this season and others preferred on that basis.

Betting

Forecast

Desert Frost (9/4), Mountain Rescue (7/2), Colonel Frank (5/1), Horsted Keynes (5/1), Suzi's Connoisseur (6/1), Peak Princess (13/2), Holiday Magic (11/1), Go Far (20/1), Hart Stopper (25/1)

Verdict

GO FAR is well enough handicapped on old form to be of interest here and has a respectable record when fresh. Desert Frost is less exposed than most and gets the talented George Wood claiming 3lb off his back while Peak Princess has run well here before and has each-way claims.
