- Book Now For The Scottish Sun Raceday Handicap (Lady Amateur Riders) (Class 6)
- 1m 5f 26y, Good to Firm (Firm in places)
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Beaten at Evens when second of just three in Guernsey on stable debut last time out, but well-treated on his best form and has shown he stays further than this in the past.
Hasn't looked especially close in his last few starts to getting his head back in front, and vulnerable to younger rivals at his age.
Much better on the AW than on turf, and no closer to getting off the mark in this sphere last time at Catterick despite a much lower mark than on the AW.
Improvement badly needed on two heavy defeats over 1m4f so far this season and dropped just 2lb from his last run. First-time eye shield an interesting addition.
Slightly patchy form and remains a maiden, but the sort of form that saw her finish third at Lingfield three starts back would be enough for her to go close here for a new trainer.
Remains a maiden and far from the most consistent, but ran well over staying trips a few times last year, and has been slowly slipping down the weights.
Has run well in defeat on both starts so far this campaign, and previous form suggests this quicker surface shouldn't be an issue for him either; strongly considered.
Two of the better efforts of her career the last twice over further than this at Newcastle, though this shorter trip not sure to suit.
