Not the most reliable type but did get his head in front (or consented to) twice in handicaps last year over 5f. His first two runs this year showed some promise (one here over 6f) but he failed to see out 7f here last time; questions to answer.

Has won three times here with his latest win coming in a repeat of a 2017 triumph. Now has to cope with a furlong further and a 3lb higher mark. 0/10 over 7f and despite some placed efforts at the distance struggles to see it out properly.

49-7OR: 67CD
3/1
Course winner who looked at his absolute best when winning at Brighton last time by 3L; stayed on well. 2lb well-in under his penalty and although he had the run of the race last time looks capable enough in this higher grade.

One of his two wins last year came over C&D off a 4lb lower mark but he has won off this same rating. Out of sorts for the most part this year though but managed to stop the slide last time in a 0-85; may continue on the road back.

Work to do with Harry Beau on their running here in May form that looks strong thanks to the exploits of the second although he got going too late on that occasion. Had previously scored twice off lower marks so not totally written off.

Consistent sort who won over 7f at Brighton in May but was held by Harry Beau there last time although at the revised weights he does have a chance of reversing that form. Effective at this trip but may be marginally better back at 6f.

Needs at least 7f to show his best these days and found the 6f when 7th behind Kinglami an inadequate test last time (not given a hard time). May well be able to reverse that form over a furlong further; 1lb higher than for last win.

Now had 16 attempts at breaking his maiden and showed no real signs of doing so last time (slow away) on the AW. Last two efforts have been below-par and hard to recommend for this contest.

Just had the three runs so far and now makes his handicap debut on his third run for his current yard. May do better in this sphere but hardly any encouraging signs so far.

Winner in January off a basement mark on the AW over 6fhe's run some consistent races of late but in a much lower grade. Did best of those ridden from off the pace over 7f at Chelmsford last time but faces a tough task.

Betting

Forecast

Nutini (6/4), Harry Beau (3/1), Wahaab (11/2), Air Of York (8/1), Operative (10/1), Kinglami (12/1), Dalness Express (16/1), Champagne Bob (20/1), Neat 'n Nifty (33/1), Canadian Royal (50/1)

Verdict

A few of these may well be a little better over 6f but one who will enjoy this trip is last time out winner HARRY BEAU who should once again be able to cope with his old foe Nutini even on the revised terms. Both Kinglami and Operative have questions to answer at this trip while both Air Of York and Champagne Bob will look more at home over this trip. Wahaab managed to halt his decline last time and any market support for him should be noted.
  1. Harry Beau
