711-12OR: 93
1/1

Still a maiden after 23 starts despite having had plenty of chances to get on the score sheet. Beaten just half a length here last time over extended 2m5f and runs off 1lb higher mark now. Should be thereabouts again.

Maiden placed only twice from 13 starts, but was fair third at Doncaster in January on soft gorund. Hasn't run well in three starts since but a revival not completely ruled out.

11/2

Two wins under Rules but most recent was November 2015 off 4lb higher than current mark. Returns from winter break and would have a squeak if fit enough to do himself justice.

6/1

28 races without a win to his name and has been well beaten on all recent starts. 2lb out of the handicap and very hard to make a case for.

50/1

43-race maiden who has finished last on all five outings since the turn of the year on the Flat and over the sticks. Needs a minor miracle.

11/1

Only win in 87 starts came in a selling hurdle at this track on Boxing Day 2012. Hasn't beaten a single horse in his last five starts and races from 7lb out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Elkstone (1/1), Grow Nasa Grow (7/2), Larkhall (11/2), Rapid Fritz (6/1), The Society Man (11/1), L'Es Fremantle (50/1)

Verdict

This is a very, very modest race which almost certainly concerns only the top three in the handicap. Top weight ELKSTONE has cost supporters a packet over the years and is still a maiden, but he did go very close last time. Maybe this will finally be his day. Grow Nasa Grow receives 17lb from the selection and has a chance on his Doncaster run this winter, while Larkhall is not a complete no-hoper despite having failed to score since 2015.
