Winner over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton last December and best effort since came when narrowly beaten over 1m4f in France last month. Interesting to see how he fares back in handicap company.

Victorious over C&D on good ground on his penultimate outing. Fair effort in a valuable event over this trip at Haydock earlier this month and is one to note with cheekpieces applied for the first time.

Maiden winner over an extended 1m at Nottingham (good) last November and placed four times subsequently. This looks less competitive than the Ascot event he contested last time out. Visored for the first time.

Registered his first victory when winning over 1m5f at Newmarket (good-to-firm) at the end of last month. Raised 7lb for that success and an interesting runner once more.

Followed up an impressive Haydock (1m6f, good-to-firm) success with a good third in a valuable handicap there nearly three weeks ago. Interesting to see how he fares in this contest.

Forecasts

Ghostwatch (10/11), Mt Augustus (7/2), Sexy Beast (7/2), King's Proctor (8/1), Jackfinbar (25/1)

Verdict

The application of cheekpieces can see GHOSTWATCH make a return to the winners enclosure in this staying handicap event. The selection has won here already this season and can get the better of his rivals here with Jackfinbar capable of finishing runner-up under top weight. Third place can go the way of Mt Augustus who was a winner last time.
  1. Ghostwatch
  2. Jackfinbar
  3. Mt Augustus
