- Sky Bet Extra Place Races Apprentice Handicap (Class 6)
- 1m 3f 99y, Good to Firm (Good in places)
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Remains a maiden after ten starts, but continues to run to a similar level of form (1m4f-2m) without progressing quite enough in order to break her duck. Runner-up over C&D fortnight ago and should be involved again.
Took advantage of reduced mark making good return from a break when narrowly denied at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) 10 days ago. Remains well treated on old form and should go well over longer trip.
Winner over 1m on AW at Kempton in April, holding form well including runner-up finish at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) 20 days ago, unexposed over this longer trip from same handicap mark.
Remains a maiden after eight starts and somewhat inconsistent in that run, well enough held in two starts at Chepstow since joining this yard (1m2f/1m4f, both soft). Must improve to be in mix when it matters.
Has won around here over 1m2f from much higher mark, but hasn't won since 2015 now and didn't show enough on return to action over shorter trip here last month to merit selection for this contest.
Not the most reliable yardstick around, ran well in fourth of a mile at Brighton last time, stamina to be proven over this trip and 22-race maiden is probably worth opposing for now.
Behind re-opposing Kath's Legacy when seventh of 10 at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) 10 days ago. Reappearance at Salisbury last month had been promising, visor back on today. Not dismissed.
Winner of 16 races in his time but now 111-years-old and without a wince since autumn of 2016. Poor when last spotted on turf and not a lot to enthuse about in recent AW form.
Extended winless sequence to 20 with wide-margin defeat at Lingfield over a similar trip last month, hard to predict the breakthrough coming now.
