As his two latest runner-up slots suggest he's not that easy to win with although both of those runs were creditable in their own right. Mark has now slipped 18lb below his last winning one and runs in a 0-60 handicap for the first time.

One of two in this race for the trainer and although he's hinted at a revival of late he did nothing to look as though that was coming to fruition last time at Ayr. Like his stablemate dropped well below his last winning mark but has to convert.

A winner over C&D on his penultimate start off a 6lb lower mark (very slowly away) that victory came in a very weak race. Back on the AW last time when he failed to back that up he would be in with a shout here if he can repeat his previous form.

Off the course for a long time and has her first run for this yard (previously with James Unett). A consistent sort when last seen the handicapper has dropped her 6lb and this run will tell us how much ability still remains.

Returned on the AW after a 10 month break having her first run for this yard over 1m4f; should strip fitter for that run. Had some fairly useful form when trained in France winning four times in 2016; never won a handicap though.

No stranger to success here with three C&D wins to his name all off higher marks (doubtful if he was capable of running to that level now). Ran one of his better races and the stable have hit form of late (won with last three runners).

One of two runners in this for the trainer his one win came on the AW (over 1m) a few starts back off a lowly mark. Ran well enough over the same C&D last time without matching the form of his win; one to watch in the betting.

Given his price as a two-year-old (£70,000) he should be doing better than he has with all he has to show for his handicap displays so far is heavy defeats. Tried over a variety of trips there is very little substance to his form.

Most of her best/better form has come on the AW at Newcastle and her turf for of late has been below-par including in various headgear (now removed). Free from any aids this time around but hard to select and this trip looks a little too far.

Now back with her original yard via a brief sojourn with Mick Easterby but her form for both yards hasn't progressed beyond modest as yet. Far too free on her latest start and now tried in cheekpieces for the first-time.

Poor maiden who ran a respectable race dropped into selling grade last time over 7f. Hardly did enough to convince that she will be able to get involved here though even off a basement mark.

May do better than he shown so far with his pedigree giving some hope that he can do better in the future. Wasn't seen to best effect on handicap debut over C&D (poor draw; ran too free) and ridden too forcefully; not written off from this mark.

Betting

Forecast

Ana Lichious (11/4), Red Charmer (5/1), Lotara (6/1), Zoravan (7/1), Dutch Coed (15/2), Mostawfee (11/1), Finnion Fox (14/1), Flying Focus (16/1), Crazy Tornado (18/1), Clary (33/1), Zarkavon (50/1), Palace Ball (100/1)

Verdict

Solid form is hard to find in this low-grade finale to the card and form figures of FLYING FOCUS don’t look that appealing but there was some promise in his handicap debut and he may be capable of better with that experience under his belt. Ana Lichious can be given a chance on some of her form although the triple C&D winner Red Charmer looks to be a bigger danger especially with the yard hitting form. If he puts his best foot forward Zoravan should be able to cope admirably with this grade while Mostawfee is worth a check in the betting.
