7/2

Course winner who hasn't won for nearly a year but hinted that a revival was on the cards last time at Hamilton (1m1f, soft). Certainly went through the race with more enthusiasm and has now slipped in the weights (5lb below last winning mark).

Only one win to his name and that came in a juvenile maiden in 2016 (6f); he's had plenty of chances in handicaps since. Ran a respectable race last time though over C&D (0-60 first time) with his mark plummeting; travels well/finish a little weak.

5/2

Has shown ability at various times but has yet to win (tried in blinkers the last twice) and well backed when last seen. Now returns from a fair absence having had some wind surgery for a yard that has been going well; one to watch in the market.

Her last two races both in blinkers have displayed a rather moody tendency and she reverts to cheekpieces here. A winner over 7f at Newcastle in November she's produced very little since and this looks a fair race for the grade.

Ended 2017 in decent form finishing runner-up on a couple of occasions on the AW over this trip. All of his form this year has been well below that level although he did manage a slight improvement over 1m2f yesterday; still something to prove.

Back with her initial yard it's hard to fashion a case for her on what she's shown so far finishing tailed off on her handicap debut last time out and beating just one home. Drops in trip to 7f here but would be a shock winner.

There was a glimmer of hope in one of her AW runs in the early part of the year but she failed to build on that last time out and no returns from a long absence. Hardly one to approach with much confidence and others preferred.

The only three-year-old in the field he finally took a step in the right direction over this trip at Musselburgh on his penultimate start and ran to a similar level last time (same C&D). Should run his race; will find easier 0-60 handicaps than this.

Forecast

Different Journey (5/2), Robben Rainbow (3/1), Crazy Tornado (7/2), Lotara (11/2), Stardrifter (8/1), I Am Dandy (12/1), Intiwin (12/1), Irvine Lady (18/1), Palace Ball (66/1)

Verdict

This looks a little better than a normal 0-60 handicap with a few in here that could be ready to strike form such as CRAZY TORNADO who has dropped to a mark where it’s hard to ignore him. Robben Rainbow is another who has fallen rapidly in the handicap and has now got down to a mark where he must win soon although his finishing effort can be rather weak at times. Different Journey is perhaps the most interesting runner returning from wind surgery having shown ability before and the market should be watched on him. I Am Dandy looks capable of winning a race but he faces some well handicapped sorts here.
