Has won over C&D but faces a rising losing streak and went backwards from his comeback run this year last time. No doubt that he's on a decent mark and the jockey booking takes the eye but does need to show more to be confident over his chance.

Not the horse he was when with Richard Fahey (last handicap win came off 65) and his last win in a seller probably sums him up these days. Losing run is starting to mount and on the whole he's shown little for this yard.

Last win came back in 2016 when with David Simcock off a 22lb higher mark but it's doubtful if he's capable of anything near that form now. His two starts for this yard have been underwhelming and he pulled too hard to do himself justice last time.

Finished last of nine when last seen on his third run for this yard and has hardly beaten a rival in his other two starts for them. Hopes now pinned on recent wind surgery and a near basement mark; hard to recommend though.

Just the one career success to her name, that came over 1m off a basement mark last summer but has rarely looked like repeating that run. Well held on her return after 5 months off and more needed here to be of interest.

Remains a maiden if a lightly-raced one and didn't run too badly on her handicap debut at Thirsk (stayed on well over 7f). Failed to repeat that on her next outing but worth another chance having not had that many races and off a lowly mark.

One of two runners from this yard (same owner) with both of them featuring on long losing runs. Only has one win to her name (Catterick maiden; 7f) with her handicap mark have plummeted from where it opened; hard to enthuse over even off this mark.

Would be no surprise to see her spring to life but she doesn't look to be one that can be given a chance at the moment. This will be her second run back from wind surgery and for all she may have needed the run last time she does need to show more.

Betting

Forecast

Shamaheart (11/8), Mrs Angel (5/1), Chiswick Bey (5/1), Arrowzone (5/1), Captain Sedgwick (6/1), Suitsus (8/1), Prosecute (10/1), Foxy Rebel (14/1), Tom's Anna (16/1), Imbucato (28/1)

Verdict

Fairly low quality fare with plenty of these on long losing runs and showing little sign of breaking those runs if recent form can be taken as a guide. MRS ANGEL has fewer black marks against her name than many in this and shaped quite well on her handicap debut before disappointing next time and she’s worth another chance in this company. Shamaheart will appreciate the drop in class while Arrowzone can’t be totally dismissed off this mark. Suitus has probably shown the best form of late and he can’t be ruled out as he returns to turf after a break.
