8/1

Wolverhampton AW winner at two ran well in her first three starts of this campaign placing on each occasion. Handicap rose for each run and latest 4lb climb saw her struggle when fifth of six at Sandown. Handicapper doesn't relent.

January Lingfield AW scorer has acquitted himself well in all three turf starts this summer earning place money in each. Latest second at Sandown another good effort and despite going up 1lb he looks likely to be in the thick of things again.

Won over 7f at Haydock a couple of starts back before third at Sandown (Los Camachos second) and staying on fourth back at Haydock over 6f latest. This his trip it seems and should be involved off a workable mark.

Won first two starts at Yarmouth (at two) and Catterick before finishing third of six in a Chelmsford fillies handicap. Open to improvement and looks a leading contender for a stable with an excellent strike rate.

AW winner early this year hasn't showed comparable form on turf in two starts to date. Tailed off last time out at Doncaster when 15th of 16 and plenty to prove on the back of that effort.

Improved with each run in three starts to date in novice contests. Latest third of seven at Newmarket's July course left the impression there was more to come so opening handicap mark could be well within his compass.

Scored over C&D last month which was his second career success. Only given an extra 3lb for that win and while this is slightly tougher he looks to be capable of another bold bid.

Kept busy through the summer months but seems to be thriving with two wins. Career best at Chepstow latest when bolting up in small field. Handicapper takes action with 7lb rise and that could slow her progress.

Betting

Forecast

Good Effort (2/1), Marshal Dan (11/2), Lethal Lunch (6/1), Los Camachos (6/1), Talaaqy (6/1), Point Hope (8/1), Glamorous Dream (12/1), Michael Corleone (20/1)

Verdict

Twice a winner in three starts TALAAQY can regain the winning thread for the prolific William Haggas team. She was a shade disappointing when switched to AW last time out but her previous form on turf was good and she should be open to further improvement. Good Effort is feared on his handicap debut. Ismail Mohammed's colt ran a promising race last time and he could be entering handicaps at just the right time in his development. C&D winner Marshal Dan should go well with a 3lb rise for that success perhaps a little lenient.
