20/1

Not much to shout about after six career starts so far. Sent off favourite however for his last start in October but ran very disappointingly. Had an eight month break now and returns off the same mark. interesting to see if money comes again

Left Sir Mark Prescott a nine race Flat maiden for 7,500 gns in October. Bombed out over hurdles on first start for this yard in December. Has had a wind operation and given a six month break for return here off 5lb lower than last flat run

Won back-to-back races at Musselburgh in October. Last of those wins came off just 1lb lower. Slowly returning to form this year and should be cherry ripe for a good run now.

C&D winner back in September off a 2lb higher mark. Has largely been out of form since and will be looking for a return to this trip bringing about some improvement here.

Well beaten in a trio of bumpers and in three novice events on the flat. Goes up in trip for handicap debut but would need to show plenty more before becoming of interest.

69-6OR: 54BF
6/4

Showed much improved form when narrowly denied at Yarmouth (1m3½f, good to firm) last week. Well backed there and with this track likely to suit he's a major player once again off the same mark.

Dual purpose runner who is yet to win in 20 starts under any code. Capable of going close though at this level and not easy to dismiss totally.

33/1

Only has two career victories to his name and has been poor so far this year. Return to this trip should help and is on a feasible mark so any market move would be interesting.

98-12OR: 45
33/1

Career stats now read 0/66 which is a major worry. Hurdles form for this yard has taken a major upturn the last twice though so capable of getting in the mix if translating that back to the level.

Betting

Forecast

Competition (6/4), Life Knowledge (5/2), Druid's Diamond (13/2), Royal Cosmic (7/1), London Glory (10/1), Dirty Randy (20/1), Melabi (33/1), Xpo Universel (33/1), Starshell (50/1), Colonel Forster (100/1)

Verdict

Dirty Randy was well backed ahead of his last start eight months ago and it will be interesting to see if the money comes again. A market check is also needed for Starshell who returns to this sphere on a good mark having had a wind operation since last seen. Preference though here is for ROYAL COSMIC who has been slowly coming to hand and should be more than capable of picking up a race of this nature off her current mark.
  1. Royal Cosmic
  2. Dirty Randy
  3. Starshell

Rule 4

Rule 4 applies to all bets - deduction 25p in the pound
