- Follow racing_uk On Twitter Now Handicap (Class 5)
- 7f 218y, Good to Firm (Good in places, watered)
- 14 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Started the season well with a second and a couple of fourths including over 1m2f at Redcar (good-to-firm) last time. Drop in trip no inconvenience and one to note under top weight.
Handicap mark is sliding following some modest efforts since joining this yard. Finished 12th of 16 over C&D last time and probably best watched at present.
Winner three times last season but disappointed on her final start at Redcar (7f, good-to-soft) in October. Worth a check in the market on seasonal debut.
Dual winner this year including in a claimer at Redcar (7f, good-to-firm) early last month. Struggled back in handicap last time and others hold stronger claims.
Winner of two of his three starts this term most recently on his return to turf at Ayr (1m, good-to-firm) last month. Similar conditions forecast here and one to note despite a 7lb rise in the weights.
Well held at big prices in two outings this year. Wears blinkers for the first time off a mark 4lb lower than for his latest success.
Wore a hood (retained since) for the first time when winning over 1m at Newcastle in March. Struggled on soft ground at Haydock last time and better ground forecast here should suit.
Disappointing since winning over 1m on the AW at Southwell last November. Handicap mark is falling as a result but others make more appeal.
Returned in good form this season winning at the second time of asking at Ayr (1m, good-to-firm) and finishing runner-up over 7f at the same course last time out. Likely to put in a bold show once more.
Attempted to make all prior to finishing 5L fifth at Redcar (1m, good-to-firm) on turf return last time. Interesting to see how he fares in this contest.
Out of form since finishing runner-up over 7f at Ayr (soft) in July 2016. Well handicapped as a result but probably best watched on debut for this yard following an 11 month absence.
Some fair form this spring including when fifth over 1m2f at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) recently. Return to this trip in his favour but vulnerable to less exposed rivals.
Dual winner on the AW earlier this year and has run well to finish third on his two most recent outings on turf. Races off a mark 4lb lower than when beaten 4L at Redcar (good-to-firm) over this trip last time.
Done most of his racing on the AW in recent years and finished well beaten at Wolverhampton over 7f last time out. In decent form at that venue prior to that however.
