5/4

Winner of three of his last four starts including by a neck at Haydock (6f, good-to-firm) last time out. Has to defy a 2lb rise if he's to take advantage of a good draw here.

Victorious three times last season but yet to hit top gear this time around. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be interesting back over 6f.

Placed on his first two starts this season and put in a fair effort when finishing fourth over 5f on good ground here last time. Return to 6f looks likely to suit.

Successful on her first three starts for this yard but finished well beaten over an extended 5f at Doncaster (good-to-firm) last time out and best form has come over the minimum distance.

Winner over 5f at Beverley (good-to-firm) in May but not really gone on from that and finished a well held fourth of five at Haydock recently. Wears a hood and cheekpieces for the first time.

Dual winner including on seasonal debut at Ripon (6f, soft) in April. Disappointed twice since and others hold stronger claims.

Maiden after nine starts and well held on all four appearances this term. Wide draw to overcome if he's to break his maiden in this event.

Betting

Forecast

Mr Wagyu (5/4), Gabrial The Devil (4/1), Charming Guest (9/2), Ginbar (9/2), Feebs (9/1), Bahuta Acha (14/1), Seen The Lyte (14/1), John Kirkup (16/1), Fortunate Vision (16/1), Campion (40/1), Zizum (100/1)

Verdict

MY WAGYU is drawn well and he can register a third win in his last four starts by taking this competitive sprint handicap. The selection looks capable of getting the better of his rivals with Gabrial The Devil who ran well here last time out taken to finish best of the rest. Third place can go the way of Charming Guest who is well drawn on this occasion.
  1. Mr Wagyu
  2. Gabrial The Devil
  3. Charming Guest
