49-9OR: 57D
Back down to his last winning mark he found things happening too quickly last time over 6f on turf and will be more at home over 7f on the AW. Has run with credit on his last few AW starts and should make his mark in this.

C&D winner here but in the basement grade he has won since then off a higher mark. Well beaten in two claimers when last seen and didn't look an easy ride last time out (went in snatches); never won off a mark this high.

A record of 1/20 hardly inspires with her sole win coming on turf over this trip. Did well enough last time out when not seen to best effect (too close to pace/poorly positioned) and may be better than that run suggests.

49-7OR: 55
Only a modest handicapper with his one win coming over 6f on Tapeta just over a year ago. Lightly-raced since then he shaped a bit better than the distance he was beaten last time under an over aggressive ride; mark looks high.

Had looked to be running into some sort of form in April/May but her last two runs have been disappointing. Went without any headgear last time (blinkers return now); last win came here in a 0-50 but others make more appeal.

59-0OR: 48CD
Hardly the most consistent and has the added complication of being far from straightforward. Slow away last time he didn't settle very well and despite being a dual C&D winner he's not the most solid citizen to have on your side.

At least she showed some sort of form last time on her first run since leaving Robert Cowell taking 2nd over C&D. Benefitted from being ridden close the pace and seeing the trip out well; raised 2lb for that effort, chance of better.

Very modest maiden who has very little solid form to his name and ran poorly over 1m2f last time on turf. Easily passed over even in this basement grade.

68-12OR: 45D
Fallen a long way in the handicap and now onto his 5th different trainer and whilst he has shown some glimmers of his old form of late it's hard to see him building on those runs. No doubt he's well handicapped but fails to hold much appeal.

58-12OR: 45
Off a mark that can't go any lower he's one to leave alone having shown very little including last time when he was slow away and off the bridle early on.

Formerly with Richard Hughes his best run of his four for this yard came here over C&D but on the whole it's poor form and nothing that would stand close scrutiny even in this grade.

38-11OR: 54
Formerly trained in Ireland she's now had two runs for this yard and hinted at a revival last time although the effort was short lived. Not the first time she's done that and weak finishes are something that she's known for.

38-10OR: 53
Unusual for one this lowly rated to be in a top yard like this and he looked more the finished article in a handicap (first-time) with a tongue-tie on over 6f on the AW. Well held last time (met trouble) and could be capable of more if he stays 7f.

38-4OR: 47
Modest maiden filly who has one standout effort to her name over 6f here on handicap debut but has fallen rapidly in the handicap since then. Recent efforts have been below-par and one to avoid on balance.

Betting

Forecast

Hangman Jury (SP), Emily Goldfinch (SP), Mr Potter (SP), Frank's Legacy (SP), Spryt (SP), Mossy's Lodge (SP), Mr Andros (SP), Garth Rockett (SP), Higgy's Heartbeat (SP), Vicky Cristina (SP), Kodiac Pearl (SP), Scimitar (SP), Quick Monet (SP), Agent Of Fortune (SP)

Verdict

A particularly low grade contest to end the card with winning or even solid form very thin on the ground. If Scimitar could be guaranteed to stay 7f he would be of interest of a basement mark for a top stable with Emily Goldfinch another to take a look at if he wayward tendencies can be kept in check. Garth Rocket should be able to make an impression here although he’s not the most consistent and dual C&D winner Mr Potter is another who would fall into that category. In the end KODIAC PEARL looks to be the best of a modest bunch having run well to take the runner-up slot here last time; his trainer very capable with horses inherited from other yards.
