Promising effort when finishing sixth on seasonal debut at Musselburgh (5f, good-to-firm) earlier this month. Interesting if building on that.

Successful three tiems so far but held in both starts this season and likely to find a few too good once more.

Good effort in finishing fourth at Ripon (6f, soft) on his seasonal debut last month. Quicker ground forecast here no issue and worth a check in the market in this contest.

Wore cheekpieces (retained) for the first time when winning over C&D on good-to-firm ground last time out. Similar going forecast here and one for the shortlist despite a 5lb rise in the weights.

Sole success over 6f at Lingfield (good-to-firm) in august 2016. Disappointing since finishing runner-up at Ripon (6f, good) last august and tackling this trip for the first time.

Betting

Forecast

Acclaim The Nation (4/1), Harome (6/1), Computable (6/1), Tanasoq (8/1), Longroom (8/1), Henley (10/1), Landing Night (12/1), Sfumato (12/1), Suwaan (12/1), Ventura Secret (20/1), African Friend (20/1), Aleef (22/1), Tylery Wonder (25/1), You're Cool (33/1), Liberatum (40/1)

Verdict

HAROME can register his first victory of the season having finished runner-up the last twice by taking this competitive looking sprint handicap. The selection has the trip and ground in his favour once more and is taken to get the better of recent C&D winner Acclaim The Nation who returned to form with the cheekpieces applied last time out. Computable finished third in the aforementioned C&D contest and he is taken to fill the same position once more while Suwaan, placed at Musselburgh last time is another to consider.
