79-11OR: 76D
4/1

Quirky character who got back to winning ways last time when winning a small-field event at Hamilton (6f, good/firm) and now carries a penalty. Dropped to 0-75 company the last twice and this is slightly harder; not sure to be in the same form.

6/1

Dual C&D winner whose form this year has been far from his best and he's yet to really sparkle. Ran poorly last time out doing too much too soon from the front (change of tactics) and despite slipping in the weights is hard to recommend.

6/1

A C&D winner on his second run for the yard (first after a long break) turning in a performance which augured well for the future. Hasn't as yet managed to follow-up but ran well last time; left the impression a stiff track/further would suit.

11/4

Had C&D form figures which read 1123 although he's now 10lb above his last winning mark at this venue (2lb above last winning mark elsewhere). Ran well at Ayr last time (free early) and now back to a sharp track he's a player in this.

12/1

Has his first run for a yard which is gaining a solid reputation with stable switchers but with an overall record on 1-27 that may prove hard work in this case. Ran with credit on his penultimate outing on the AW but below-par last time.

9/1

Starting to take a step back in the right direction (only three runs for this yard). Last run at Carlisle over 7f showed the most promise of all (not suited by run of race) and could well be on the way back to a full revival; yet to win a handicap.

69-4OR: 75D
6/1

A career-low mark was a big contributor to his ending a long losing run last time out at Ayr (6f, good). That showed that he could be effective in this grade (travelled well) but this looks a little more competitive off a 5lb higher mark.

59-1OR: 72D
14/1

An in-and-out but capable performer for Simon Crisford he's been steadily finding his feet for this yard and the handicapper is certainly giving him a chance. Step in the right direction last time; headgear stays on and of interest off this mark.

Betting

Forecast

Our Charlie Brown (11/4), Mujassam (4/1), Twin Appeal (6/1), Tommy G (6/1), Sureyoutoldme (6/1), Full Intention (9/1), Lagenda (12/1), Etikaal (14/1)

Verdict

An interesting contest and one that sees a few options and some horses that are looking as though they are reviving. One that figures back on the perfect track to show his best is OUR CHARLIE BROWN who shows his best on sharp tracks such as this and in that scenario he’s more appealing than the penalised Mujassam. Sureyoutoldme would prefer a stiffer test now with the two that are on their way to a full-scale revival well worth watching in the market. Full Intention would be the first of that duo with the most fascinating of all Etikaal for Grant Tuer who does well with this type and he could be very well handicapped on his old form having shown promise at Redcar last time in a 0-90.
