Came to hand early last season and did well on his return to run last week's Newmarket scorer, Gunmetal, to 1¼L. Looks a player despite topweight.

Heavily backed on his return from wind surgery but he failed to handle Tattenham Corner and his race was soon over. Becoming frustrating but would be well-handicapped if his trainer did get him to the track in good form.

Winner of ten races but the majority have come at Ripon and Beverley. Looks a shade too high in the weights at present and others preferred.

Impressed at Bath on his reappearance but his revised mark has seen him struggle in better company. Claimer on board this time and cheekpieces fitted.

Ended a long losing run here before being done no favours by Brian The Snail at Epsom on Derby Day. New mark takes him into territory where he can still be competitive.

Outclassed a little at York last time but had been a winner on his previous start, albeit by a short head, here on slower ground. Just as happy on quicker and yard in tremendous form.

Not yet operating at last season's level which brought three successes including a Goodwood class 2 of this mark. Slight improvement last time and a bigger step forward required now.

Winner at Ascot on stable debut (class 4, 6f) and fell out the stalls before finishing last of seven over 5f. Has a chance to atone but the handicapper has not made it easy.

Solid performer in his prime, but without a victory since June 2015 (6f). Only beat one home on stable debut and hard to be enthusiastic about his prospects.

Looks held by Wentworth Falls on Thirsk running and he seems better at a lower level than this nowadays.

Will be better for his recent run and any rain will help his chances. Figures on a handy mark at present but it is hard to predict when he might pop up.

Betting

Forecast

Boy In The Bar (11/4), Wentworth Falls (4/1), Watchable (9/2), Equitation (5/1), Pipers Note (7/1), Brian The Snail (9/1), Moonraker (10/1), Naggers (10/1), Dougan (12/1), Sheepscar Lad (12/1), Related (16/1), Glen Moss (20/1), Sir Billy Wright (33/1), Secretinthepark (33/1), Huntsmans Close (50/1)

Verdict

EQUITATION was a beaten favourite on his return here but was beaten just over a length into fifth in a race won by Watchable. His stable were not firing on all cylinders then, but they certainly are now and he can go in of the same mark. Wentworth Falls was unlucky to bump into a rejuvenated Gunmetal on his return, whilst Sheepscar Lad comes from an in form yard and has each-way possibilities as does Naggers.
