Maiden winner on good-to-soft ground last August but struggled in two starts this term. Handicap mark is falling as a result and worth a check in the market.

Beaten just two rivals home in three starts this season. Well handicapped as a result but others hold stronger claims.

Some fair efforts this term including when fifth over an extended 5f at Bath (good-to-firm) last time out. Vulnerable to younger rivals.

Finished a close fourth over 5f at Wolverhampton earlier this month. Without a win in 41 career starts however and likely to find at least one too good once more.

Winner of a claiming race over this trip at Beverley (good-to-firm) in September 2016. Disappointing in the main since and others make more appeal.

Failed to figure in three maiden races and it was a similar story on handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time. Cheekpieces worn that day are retained.

Betting

Forecast

Star Cracker (7/4), Brendan (5/1), Archimedes (6/1), Perfect Words (7/1), Pavers Pride (8/1), Dawoodi (12/1), Celerity (14/1), Secret Asset (20/1), Newgate Sioux (25/1), Redeeming (33/1), On The High Tops (100/1)

Verdict

STAR CRACKER ran well to finish runner-up here earlier this season and he is taken to register a fifth career success in this sprint handicap. Perfect Words is well handicapped on his old form and having put in a couple of fair efforts so far this season he can claim second while longstanding maiden Celerity who ran well to finish fourth last time out can finish third.
  1. Star Cracker
  2. Perfect Words
  3. Celerity
