Having his first run for current stable when well held over 7f at Chelmsford in December. Drops in trip off 2lb lower, but has a bit to prove.

Winner at Lingfield in March and by no means disgraced in two subsequent starts off higher marks. May need to drop back down the weights a little.

Rattled off a four-timer last summer, but the handicapper had his say and he is without a win since. Needs to return to that earlier form, but would be a real threat if doing so.

25/1

Lightly-raced gelding who has not been seen since winning a Lingfield handicap in November, 2016. Has clearly had a problem, but is only 3lb higher than for that win and has claims if fit enough after his absence.

Does not win often, but ran well to finish third to a progressive type at Haydock last time. In the mix if able to replicate that display off 1lb lower.

Winner of three of his last four starts and showed he was fully effective at this trip when succcessful at Newmarket last time. Continues to climb the weights, but may not have reached the ceiling of his ability.

Has run well on all three starts off this sort of mark this season, but seems to be slightly better over 7f despite a victory over this trip. Not discounted, however

Only two wins from 25 starts and recent efforts do not suggest that record is about to improve. Handicap mark is falling, though.

On a long, losing sequence, but shaped quite well when second in a Chelmsford claimer last time. Interesting to see how he fares off career-low mark for new yard.

String of solid efforts in defeat, but his consistency has meant the handicapper has left him alone. Likely to be thereabouts again, but may find one or two too strong.

Betting

Forecast

Pursuing Steed (3/1), Madrinho (7/2), Letmestopyouthere (9/2), Coverham (11/2), Red Tycoon (8/1), Bounty Pursuit (14/1), Swot (14/1), Briyouni (20/1), Assassinate (25/1), Gold Hunter (28/1)

Verdict

Swot can be relied on to run his usual solid race and Pursuing Steed would be hard to beat if recapturing last season's form, but the progressive COVERHAM may not have stopped winning just yet and is taken to make it four wins from his last five starts. Madrinho looks the main threat, while Letmestopyouthere is of interest on his first run for a new stable.
