Appeared to appreciate a bit of give in the ground when winning twice over 6f the second victory coming off 81 in a handicap. Now gelded his second run of the year caught the eye (poorly placed/drawn) at Chester; 1lb lower here, first try at 7f.

Stepped up to this trip for the first time on his last start he produced a career best only edged into third late on. Twice a winner over 5f last year (including on debut) he's well worth another chance at this trip off the same mark as last time.

This will be his first start on turf having already won twice over this trip on the AW (in headgear both times). Took a big step forward when winning in January in a better grade but his last two starts have been below that par.

Didn't really have to improve when winning at Hamilton last year over 6f as a two-year-old. Has failed to really fire this year in a couple of starts and now tries 7f for the first time with cheekpieces removed (run poorly twice in them).

Yet to run in a handicap on turf having taken a minor event on the AW when returning from a break and being gelded over 7f in March. Raced freely and further back than usual over 1m last time off a 1lb higher mark; needs to settle better.

Still a maiden and now gelded for his two runs this year which have seen contrasting tactics employed. Failed to settle the first time out this year and then given his head last time as over exuberance once again threaten to spoil his chance.

Given plenty of work as a juvenile winning an AW handicap over 7f (in cheekpieces) before resuming winning ways in an AW seller over the same trip (no headgear) as a three-year -old. Ran poorly on his first outing for this yard last time; work to do.

Forecast

Captain Jameson (9/4), Kraka (3/1), Kyllachy Dragon (3/1), Blackheath (4/1), Viscount Loftus (9/2), Humble Gratitude (17/2), Windsor Cross (25/1), Bezos (50/1)

Verdict

Although he’s having his first try at 7f CAPTAIN JAMESON comes from a stable in good form and he certainly caught the attention on his last run when he was hampered not only by a poor draw but also by being ill-placed throughout the race. A better trip and draw here will see him in a much better light. Kyllachy Dragon and Viscount Loftus are two others that are worthy of consideration both capable of winning in this company having run some solid races of late. Both Blackheath and Kraka need to settle better to be able to be seen at their best with Windsor Cross needing to bounce back to his earlier form to have a chance here.

  3. Viscount Loftus
