6/1

Experienced campaigner on the Flat and over hurdles. Favourite when third of six at Beverley last time and runs off 1lb lower. Looks slightly vulnerable off top weight.

Scored twice last season, but has not been at her best this time round. Dropping down the weights and stable in good form, so a revival could be on the cards.

7/2

Six-race maiden who tries his hand in handicap company for the first time after finishing a fair fourth of seven to a promising sort at Nottingham last time. Not obviously well treated, but worth a market check.

Stayed on to finish third in a 1m2f ladies' race at Nottingham last time. Return to this longer distance is a plus and he runs off the same mark.

Won on debut for stable at Hamilton last month, but was subsequently beaten off 1lb higher over 1m2f at Beverley. Longer trip should help and jockey booking catches the eye.

Good effort to be third over C&D last month and may have found 1m6f stretching his stamina at Redcar on his latest outing. Stable going well so very much one to consider.

Has failed to beat a rival in three races since joining this stable from James Given. Hard to get excited about despite his falling handicap mark.

Just touched off in a minor race at Salisbury in May and ran as though 1m6f was too far for him at Haydock on his handicap debut. This distance should be more suitable.

Betting

Forecast

Helioblu Bareliere (7/2), Vision Clear (9/2), Swansway (5/1), Cornborough (6/1), Auxiliary (13/2), Tan Arabiq (7/1), Canadian George (12/1), Fire Leopard (16/1), True Romance (50/1)

Verdict

Auxiliary should step up on his latest effort at Beverley and Vision Clear ought to find this shorter trip more to his liking, but TAN ARABIQ should also appreciate this drop back in distance for a yard which is going well at the moment. Swansway ran well last time and should be on the premises, while Fire Leopard would be a threat if recapturing last season's form.
  1. Tan Arabiq
  2. Swansway
  3. Vision Clear

Rule 4

Rule 4 applies to all bets - deduction 10p in the pound
