Addition of blinkers (retained since) appeared to bring about a return to form when winning over this trip at Thirsk (good-to-firm on his penultimate start. Finished runner-up over C&D subsequently and took this off a 3lb lower mark 12 months ago.

Victorious in a claimer over 7f at Redcar (good-to-firm) last month and a fair effort when fifth over the same trip back in handicap company subsequently. Likely more needed in this contest.

Victorious by a nose over this trip at Redcar (good-to-firm) on his penultimate start. Decent effort over the same C&D when sixth subsequently and is of interest once more.

Novice stakes winner over 7f at Brighton (good-to-firm) last August. Failed to back up a decent effort at Yarmouth (1m, good-to-firm) on his penultimate outing when well beaten last time but remains open to improvement.

Six time winner and placed on his first two starts this term. Disappointed the last twice however and others hold stronger claims on this occasion.

Fair sixth on the AW over an extended 1m when making his seasonal debut at Wolverhampton in April. Worth a check in the market back on turf.

Signs of a return to form when finishing third over 1m at Ayr (good-to-firm) on his penultimate start. Struggled next time however and more needed if he's to record a victory from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Shamaheart (7/2), Racemaker (4/1), Shouranour (7/1), Edgar Allan Poe (15/2), Abushamah (15/2), Relight My Fire (17/2), Al Ozzdi (14/1), Acrux (16/1), Red Charmer (16/1), Amy Blair (20/1), Dominannie (33/1), Billy Bond (50/1)

Verdict

Last years winner RACEMAKER can repeat that success off a 3lb higher mark this time around. The seleciton has been in good form recently and can get the better of Abushamah who wasn't beaten far over this trip last time and has forecast ground conditions to suit. Third place can go to Al Ozzdi who can put a disappointing effort last time out behind him.
