2/1

Hamilton regular, two wins from five starts over 6f there this season, ran well once more five days ago in better race than he meets here. Player if transferring form to this venue.

A career-low mark was a big contributor to his ending a long losing run last time out at this track (6f, good) last month, turned in a poor effort earlier in the week at Musselburgh (7f, good) from revised mark. Vulnerable.

Won twice on the Flat for Roger Varian in 2015 over this trip, but has had issues with the stalls since. Couple of tame recent efforts over hurdles don't convince of chances here.

Made all and held on gamely when scoring by a short-head at Musselburgh in October. Has also won over this C&D in the past but out of form both starts this term so far and hard to be confident at the moment.

Hasn't won for over a year now but has dropped to a mark down below her last winning one. Well held over extended-mile last week at Hamilton but cannot be discounted down in trip.

Has dropped to a winnable mark and this trip/conditions are spot on so every reason to think he could bounce back to form. Ran a poor race in midweek at Thirsk however.

Latest victory came over 7f at Newcastle last September. Held on three starts so far this season including over C&D last two starts.

Now gone 31 runs since last win in 2015 and has also failed to make the frame on last 16 outings. Impossible to fancy after tame reappearance at Hamilton last month.

Betting

Forecast

Logi (2/1), Forever A Lady (11/4), Smugglers Creek (7/2), Tommy G (4/1), Inglorious (16/1), Intiwin (20/1), Majdool (66/1), Yair Hill (100/1)

Verdict

LOGI has been in decent form up at Hamilton and will take beating in this grade if he enjoys himself on this track. The others all have their questions to answer. Tommy G took advantage of a declining handicap mark at Hamilton last month, but was well held at Musselburgh since while Forever A Lady is on a very workable mark now but must show more than was the case at Hamilton 10 days ago.
