Visor went on for the first time prior to winning a Yarmouth selling handicap (1m) a fortnight ago. Not the most predictable, but chances if backing that up.

Soundly beaten on first two starts, but has done better with sights lowered last twice, and benefited from return to 7f when ½L third of 8 to Kachumba in 0-70 handicap at Brighton last time. Will go well with a repeat.

No impact on first three starts this year, but back to best when head second of 7 to Monumental Man in 6f selling handicap at Brighton last time, and respected assuming blinkers have a positive effect.

Showed promise as a juvenile, but hasn't gone on as expected, and little impact despite sliding mark this year, including in selling company. Claims if finding best form, but risky.

Best effort this term when runner-up at Newcastle (6f) in May, but below that level since, albeit shaping better than result over 1m last time. Drop to selling grade may help.

Big chance on form which saw him placed in a 6f nursery at Yarmouth in October. Below form this year, but represents trainer/jockey combination with 9-17 record this year, and needs maximum respect as a result.

Out of a half-sister to high-class sprinter Borderlescott, but two siblings to have raced have been moderate, and she trailed home last of 7 in a novice at Chester on racecourse bow.

Best effort to date when 2½L fourth of 15 to Spanish Mane in 1m handicap at Wetherby last month, and place claims on that form, but needs to shrug off a poor run at Hamilton since.

Betting

Forecast

Episcia (3/1), Moretti (9/2), Tember (5/1), Zabaletaswansong (11/2), Super Major (6/1), Scenery (8/1), Johni Boxit (8/1), Kaala Taara (200/1)

Verdict

ZABALETASWANSONG isn't easy to fancy on his last couple of runs, but he's just about the pick on his best efforts, and the presence of Silvestre de Sousa in the saddle (ten wins from 20 rides for the stable in recent years) suggests he will bounce back to form now dropped to plating company. Episcia looks the main threat based on a solid run in better company at Brighton, although Scenery also needs respect with blinkers fitted for the first time.
