Won here over C&D as a juvenile and scored at Doncaster last term as well as finishing third in the Portland Handicap at the same track. Disappointed but may not have handled the track at Epsom last time. 2lb lower now.

Fair sprint handicapper did well last year winning five times. Good effort when third at Newmarket last month. Runs off same mark with champion jockey once again booked.

Still unexposed sprint handicapper has first run since wind surgery. Won Over C&D last season and ran well off revised mark when second at York in July. Contender if op has done the trick back at scene of previous victory.

Two turf wins have come over 6f but won at Chelmsford recently over minimum trip having scored time before at Lingfield over 6f. Raised 6lb since last success but clearly in good heart and won't be far away in hat-trick bid.

Veteran sprint handicapp has been a grand servant to connections over the last decade. Not disgraced on seasonal return at Chester recently and may sneak a place at least off 2lb lower mark.

5f specialist has fallen to potentially winnable mark having been lightly raced since last summer. Yard going through a quiet spell but a bold show is by no means ruled out.

Seems better on the Fibresand these days and rattled off a hat-trick at Southwell this winter. Not disgraced in Ascot handicap last week but on balance others make more appeal.

Bounced back to form when justifying market support to land Catterick 5f handicap last week. Has 6lb penalty and stronger race to contend with but may not be far away.

Betting

Forecast

Erissimus Maximus (7/2), Zamjar (4/1), Justanotherbottle (9/2), Merry Banter (9/2), Batten The Hatches (5/1), Bashiba (11/1), Confessional (18/1), Monks Stand (20/1)

Verdict

A decent sprint handicap in which most of the runners have some sort of a chance. With Silvestre de Sousa once again on board ERISSIMUS MAXIMUS is the percentage call having run very well when third at HQ last time out. Top weight Justanotherbottle is handicapped to go well, and Batten The Hatches could be a danger to all if the wind op has done the trick. Hat-trick seeking Zamjar is very much respected, as too is old boy Confessional who ran with credit at Chester last time.
