Alsvinder4(ex 6)
69-13OR: 72D
15/8

Carries a 6lb penalty here for a recent win and goes for a hat-trick having previously looking hard to win with. Creeps up another grade here although he's still well weighted in comparison to his AW mark and may be able to win again.

7/1

C&D winner who has been shaping well of late without a race necessarily going his way and ran into a thriving rival last time out. Well above his last winning mark although he has won off marks this high in the past; meets another in-form rival.

Likes the C&D having won over it three times now but was a bit below his best when last seen dropping into this grade for the first time in a while. Running well enough this year without showing the necessary zip to win a race.

Another C&D winner who looks to be handicapped right up to his best at the moment running well enough but without the handicapper giving him any help. Has slipped back to his last winning mark though now and worth considering.

48-13OR: 68
12/1

Lightly-raced individual who looks as though he needs to settle better in his races before he will able to win one. Eyeshields used last time with his usual hood are removed here; looks to also need a further ease in the handicap to be of interest.

Dual C&D winner who hasn't really fired this year and looked to have a good opportunity last time but in the end was swept away by the principals. She's now back below her last winning mark though and can't be totally ruled out here.

Has run with encouragement on all her three handicap starts (better than finishing position in all of them). Now eased a little in grade for her second start for this new yard she's clearly of interest off this career-low mark.

78-9OR: 60CD
11/2

On a losing run of 14 now she is a previous course winner over further as well as a C&D winner. Ran a lot better than of late last time out at Doncaster staying on more strongly than of late to finish 4th; dropped to a workable mark.

Forecast

Alsvinder (15/8), Penny Dreadful (11/2), Paco Escostar (13/2), Landing Night (13/2), Foxtrot Knight (7/1), Airglow (12/1), Seamster (12/1), Kinloch Pride (14/1)

Verdict

It would be easy not to look beyond Alsvinder here especially as he’s in-form on turf and despite a penalty well below his AW mark and still looks to have some scope on turf to complete his hat-trick. PACO ESCOSTAR has caught the eye in all her runs this year though and the handicapper has taken a chance dropping her 3lb for her last run and she’s taken to provide a little bit of value in this. Contenders like Landing Night and Kinloch Pride have five C&D wins between them but just appear to lack the necessary firepower to win a race at the moment and the same could be said of Seamster another who has shown his form around here. Foxtrot Knight another to have a squeak in this at his best.
