19:40 Pontefract Mon 11 June 2018
In good form throughout most of last year and returned with a win at Ripon in April. Respectable effort when fourth of 15 at York last time and has the potential to improve up in trip here.
Winner on debut at Ayr but has largely struggled since. Last at Sandown in April and has a bit to prove off this sort of mark at present.
Won two of his first three starts but has found handicap company tough since. Well beaten favourite at Chepstow last time and this is no easier.
Won at Nottingham in soft ground on debut. Not won in four starts since but shaped with a bit more promise at Ripon last time and dropped another 1lb. Likely more to come this season.
Won twice last year but has been struggling from his revised mark in handicaps. Assessor has dropped him 3lb but vulnerable to anything progressive and has been dealt the widest draw.
Ran well in a maiden here in September when second of 12 but handicap company has proven to be a struggle and may need some more relief from the handicapper.
Won over 7f at Sandown on second start but that's his only success in nine starts and well beaten on two outings for this yard. Hard to fancy.
