69-10OR: 60D
8/1

Successful three times in 2017, but operating a notch or two below his best at present. Excuses for latest effort at Chepstow (hampered), and drops in grade now, but others preferred.

Runner-up on racecourse bow at Windsor for Giles Bravery, but yet to build on that effort. Probably needed run when eighth of 14 to Viola Park in handicap at Kempton for new yard in May, though, so may yet do better.

Best efforts for current yard on easy turf, and won in the mud at Wetherby in April. Well below form in subsequent starts, however, and opposable on balance of form.

Successful on two of his four starts over C&D (in 2016), and latest win at Bath in September. Best effort this year when fifth of 13 to Vincenzo Coccotti at Bath last time, and has fallen to a tempting mark.

Record in handicaps reads 0-34, and he is not one to trust in a battle. Ran well when third at Thirsk in May, but not so good since, and easy to oppose as a rule.

Went close on debut for current yard at Chelmsford in November, and some respectable efforts since. Better than result after a break at Lingfield last time, but needs to raise his game to be competitive.

Standout effort to date when second at Yarmouth last month, but she's inconsistent, and followed that with a poor run at Windsor. Percentage call is to look elsewhere.

Won a 7f nursery here in November, and back to form when fourth of 10 to Harrison Stickle at Brighton last time. Needs to prove she can build on that, although refitting of blinkers could help.

Signs of ability in maiden and novice company but hasn't really stepped up since going handicapping on last two starts. Still early days, though, and half-brother Philba improved markedly for switch from turf to AW.

Back with a bang when staying on from an unpromising position to win at Catterick (7f) in April, and coped well with drop to 6f when beaten in tight finish there last time. Should remain competitive.

Won at Southwell in January, but has struggled to make an impact since, and behind Bee Machine when eighth at Catterick last time. Return to AW may help, but others may have the legs of him again.

Almost sprung a huge shock in a 6f maiden at Redcar in the autumn, but that effort seems to flatter her, and she's been soundly beaten in handicaps since.

Poor maiden on balance, and temperamental to boot, planting herself at the start here on penultimate outing. Best avoided.

Betting

Forecast

Unnoticed (4/1), Charleston Belle (9/2), Liamba (7/1), Diamond Pursuit (7/1), Spenny's Lass (8/1), Champagne Bob (8/1), Spin Top (9/1), Bee Machine (10/1), Langley Vale (14/1), Sir Geoffrey (16/1), Racquet (20/1), Henrietta's Dream (66/1), Rojina (100/1)

Verdict

Langley Vale has a decent record here, winning twice over C&D from four tries. He hinted at a revival last time, so must be high on the shortlist in what is a weak race for the numbers. Bee Machine has improved in handicaps, and is best not judged on his previous run on Tapeta, but the final vote goes to LIAMBA, whose half-brother Philba is much better on AW than turf, and David O'Meara's unexposed filly has shown enough to suggest she can win handicaps from her current mark.
