Just one win form seven starts but won a competitive handicap at Newcastle in December. Too keen on two subsequent efforts and needs to settle better to land a blow in this.

Improved on each of his first three starts before failing to justify short price favouritism on handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time, beat 7L. He will need to produce a better effort on turf debut to mix it with these.

In fine form towards the end of last year, winning three times and finds himself lower than his last handicap win after a couple of disappointing turf efforts this term. Interesting runner up in trip if he can bounce back from recent efforts.

Progressive last year, winning his final start of 2017 at Brighton. Not disgraced at Ascot earlier in the month when stepped up to 1m and may improve for his first try at a greater test of stamina.

Won at Kempton in January on his second start and ran well last time when third at Chelmsford. The pair in front of him that day have both won off higher marks since so there's a chance he's well-handicapped here and less exposed than some of these.

Still a maiden after six starts but only narrowly denied at Epsom last time and the winner has run well in a competitive Ascot handicap since. Likely to be improvement in him and should come on for his run last time out.

Won on soft ground on his fifth and final start of 2017 but he's not returned in the same form this time around, well beaten on both his outings and his habit of missing the break is becoming frustrating. Others preferred.

A maiden after four runs and needs to improve for his comeback run at Sandown last time when only third of five and no match for the front pair. First-time blinkers and a return to faster ground potentially in his favour.

Unplaced on each of his three outings. Makes his handicap debut here and should improve this year but entitled to need the run on return from an absence against race-fit rivals.

Betting

Forecast

Rich Identity (11/4), Cuban Heel (3/1), Martineo (4/1), Sing Out Loud (9/2), Bobby Biscuit (8/1), Soldiers Bay (10/1), Regular Income (14/1), Bold Reason (14/1), Legal History (20/1), Motown Mick (20/1)

Verdict

CUBAN HEEL may still be a maiden but it was an excellent effort in defeat last time and there's a chance he will improve for that run. Bobby Biscuit looks feasibly handicap given the form of his latest run has been boosted subsequently while Bold Reason can't be ruled out if he settles better.
