Now had two runs for this yard (one after wind surgery) and so far has been well below his usual form on both starts. Has questions to answer on that form despite a falling mark.

Has run poorly in the main for this yard with all his starts coming on the AW; remains a maiden. Headgear (not worn for this yard) now returns as he seeks to find some form.

Showed his best form of late when coming on for his reappearance run at Lingfield on his penultimate start looking capable off this mark. Disappointed last time though back on turf and not sure what to expect now.

A reduced mark last time out (below his last winning one) could have been the catalyst for an improved performance. That came over 2f shorter but he stays this trip well and is a contender if he builds on that start.

Not seen for a long while and has to prove himself off a long absence for a new trainer. Hard to give a chance to and best watched.

9/4

From a trainer/jockey combination that are always to be respected at this venue. Shaped well enough on his last run (after 113 days off) but looks to need a stiffer test than the 1m2f trip provides.

Consistent sort last season and ended the year in good for with a win at Nottingham (1m2f, good) the highlight. Needed the run on his comeback (not ideally placed) and likely to be in better shape this time around.

Course winner over 1m his losing run now stretches back two years and he's run poorly on his last two starts. Would need to find some form to figure and that hasn't looked likely of late.

Cheekpieces go on for the first time but he's well out of the handicap and hard to fancy on that premise alone.

Forecast

Mac O'polo (9/4), Abel Tasman (3/1), Archipeligo (4/1), Quoteline Direct (5/1), Sharp Reply (8/1), Ice Canyon (11/1), Berlusca (16/1), Onda District (16/1), Marylebone (40/1), Poppyinthepark (66/1)

Verdict

Hardly a stellar start to the card and Mac O’Polo for a trainer/jockey combination that have a very good record here has to be respected although he may be better over a little further. Archipeligo improved last time out and still looks as though he can win off a mark like this and he’s not to be ignored. QUOTELINE DIRECT will have come on for his comeback run and his form that he displayed at the end of last season would be good enough to see him go close here for a stable that remains in good form.
