911-1OR: 76BFD
16/1

Won three AW handicaps this year so far (all under apprentices) over various trips before disappointing back on turf and failing to recover his form last time in an AW claimer. Failed to meet market expectations there; looks vulnerable on turf at 1m.

Not seen since the end of last year when he turned in a below-par run and never really managed to build on his Goodwood win (his first on turf) winning under today's rider. His absence and this trip probably mean he's best watched.

9/4

Both his wins have come on the AW and it remains to be seen if he can take advantage of his much lower turf mark. Did run with credit when last seen on turf so hard to totally write-off coming here off a good AW run.

9/2

Course winner who is very much below his best at the moment running poorly here last time in a similar race under today's rider. Now tried in cheekpieces for the first time to see if that adds some spark.

Sure to attract support given he's partnered by the leading amateur rider having looked a little disappointing of late having not been able to reproduce his handicap debut form. Drops in grade here though and very dangerous to write off.

Well found in the market when the yard was going through a good spell he took his penultimate start easily winning over 1m (soft) at Yarmouth making all. Not in the same form next time but has finished placed under this rider before.

Generally runs his races in handicaps without looking like winning and this 1m trip may just stretch him these days (generally runs at shorter). Ridden by a inexperienced amateur here (trainer's daughter) and place hopes at best.

Betting

Forecast

Sergio Leone (11/10), Oud Metha Bridge (9/4), Hawridge Glory (9/2), Cayuga (16/1), Mr Red Clubs (25/1), Misu Pete (33/1), Swiss Cross (66/1)

Verdict

If Oud Metha Bridge is seen to the same level on turf as he is on the AW he’s going to look well handicapped in this under the experienced and very capable Ross Birkett and he should go close to winning. However, SERGIO LEONE now has Simon Walker doing the steering and his name alongside the horse is enough to attract support on its own and this looks a little easier than his last two tasks since he made a good handicap debut. Course winner Hawridge Glory will need to find some inspiration to win this although the cheekpieces may help with Misu Pete and Cayuga not left out of the picture although both will have to return to their previous best form.
