Ran well to finish a close third in a valuable 6f handicap at Newmarket (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Races off a 1lb higher mark here and likely to run well once more.

Struggled on seasonal and stable debut at Newmarket (6f, good-to-soft) last month and others have a more obvious chance in this contest.

Returned to form when winning on soft ground over this trip at Pontefract earlier this month. Quicker ground forecast here a concern off a 6lb higher mark.

Regressed since finishing 1L third at Kempton on his seasonal debut in March. Needs to return to form if he's to figure in this.

Promising fifth on seasonal debut at Pontefract (5f, good-to-soft) last month but well beaten here subsequently. Interesting to see how he fares on his return to this distance.

Betting

Forecast

Magical Effect (4/1), Barrington (4/1), Captain Colby (9/2), Robero (7/1), Tawny Port (9/1), Gunmetal (10/1), King Robert (14/1), Rasheeq (16/1), Van Gerwen (16/1), Wentworth Falls (20/1), Related (20/1)

Verdict

Trainer Paul Midgley has his string in decent form at present and his CAPTAIN COLBY can improve on the trainers 17% strike-rate (4/23) in recent weeks. The selection finished a close third in a competitive event at Newmarket last time out and with similar conditions forecast here he can get the better of Van Gerwen who has run well on a sound surface in the past and can reverse Pontefract running with Tawny Port who has shown his best form on softer surfaces than he's set to encounter in this.
  1. Captain Colby
