10/1

Dual scorer for Mark Johnston in first half of 2017, and back in groove from reduced mark for current yard, winning at Wetherby (1m) and Ripon. Proved stamina for this trip last time, but all out to win, and penalty makes life tough.

Lightly raced since winning 1m maiden at Redcar in April 2017, but as good as ever when runner-up at Chelmsford on his return in April (winner has scored twice since). Respected, for all another break since that run raises some doubts.

Flat wins at Hamilton and Beverley this summer split by a spin over hurdles, and he rallied gamely after racing freely for most recent win. Respected in current heart, although has found this sort of mark too tough in the past.

Has improved for a switch to current trainer, winning at Hamilton in May and better than the result when second there last time. Those runs have come around 1m, but she stays further, and may have more to offer.

Finished 2017 with a hat-trick, handling heavy ground well for last two successes at Beverley and Pontefract. Not in same form this year, and may need ease in the ground to rediscover his best.

Not beaten far in a first-time visor when third at Ripon last month, but hasn't really been firing since joining current yard this season, and finished last of 9 at Carlisle on his most recent start.

Had begun to look in the grip of the handicapper over shorter, but bounced back to score over 1m1f here last time, seeming to appreciate stiffer test. Steps up further in trip now, and not easily ruled out.

Cost €400,000 at the breeze-ups in 2017, and built on earlier promise when easy winner of a Chepstow novice late last month. Totally unexposed, and trainer has won last two runnings of this race, including with a handicap debutant.

Running well on the whole of late, and back to best when head second of 8 to Bollin Ted in amateur event at Nottingham last time. Takes a leap in class here, though, and limited appeal from 7lb out of the weights.

Has taken time to click in handicaps, but looked a different proposition when scoring by a wide margin at Beverley (1m½f) a week ago. Big chance under a penalty if that run taken at face value, and officially 3lb well-in.

Betting

Forecast

Give It Some Teddy (11/4), Jahaafel (3/1), Delph Crescent (5/1), Maifalki (6/1), Thomas Cranmer (10/1), Duck Egg Blue (11/1), Everything For You (14/1), Pioneering (16/1), Daawy (25/1), Orobas (33/1)

Verdict

Delph Crescent found improvement from somewhere when winning by 11 lengths at Beverley last week, and he's ahead of his mark under a penalty, but preference is for expensive purchase JAHAAFEL, who won easily at Chepstow, and comes from a shrewd yard which won this with a similar type in Istanbul Bey two years ago, and scored with another unexposed three-year-old in 2017. Duck Egg Blue is thriving, and has scope to do better again at this trip.
