6/4

Shown some fair form in handicaps and maintained his form since winning at Beverley in April (travels well). Not that well in at the weights though given the official ratings and may be a little vulnerable.

Hooded for the first time having been placed on his first two AW runs but has looked to be going the wrong way of late. Connections now quick to drop him in grade but didn't do anything last time to give him confidence here.

5/1

Last two runs on turf have been below-par after he had been shown in a better light on his AW return. Usual cheekpieces are now swapped for a first-time visor in a bid to help him recapture some form.

5/2

Tried over a variety of trips on the AW turf debut here) with the 1m4f last time stretching his stamina. Has the look of one who may have more to offer dropped in trip/grade again; nicely weighted if the official ratings can be taken as a guide.

6/1

From a stable in cracking form and some of his juvenile form would give him a good chance at these weights. Has been well held of late though including in this grade (over 7f) and will have to cope with a first try at this trip.

Makes her debut for this yard (previously with Brian Meehan) having only had one previous run (finished midfield in a Newmarket novice; 7f). Lacks experience and may well need this race and best watched unless market says otherwise.

Betting

Forecast

Rita's Man (6/4), Breakfast (5/2), Admiral Spice (5/1), Star Of Zaam (6/1), Keir Hardie (9/1), Takiah (28/1)

Verdict

Only a modest contest and Rita’s Man looks to have a difficult task at the weights based on official ratings and on her past form isn’t one for maximum faith and it may pay to look elsewhere. Star Of Zaam comes from the Karl Burke yard that are in cracking form but he’ll need to bounce back to his best over a new trip. BREAKFAST hasn’t shown that much so far but this trip may suit him better and he looks the pick of the weights here along with the hooded first-time Keir Hardie.
