11/2

Started this season well with a couple of encouraging efforts at Cork and The Curragh but was disappointing last time out. Missed an option at Galway last week but the filly appears to have a lot on her plate from top weight.

Already a six-time winner on turf and overcame an absence to win in battling style on debut for her new yard at Ballinrobe last month. A 7lb higher mark means she now needs to improve on her personal best by some way. Another with a stiff test.

Improved since being gelded after joining his current yard - latest effort was his best to date and gives the four-year-old reasonable claims despite a 5lb higher mark. The manner of that win suggests he has a bit more to offer. Has to be a player.

Winner of a Naas maiden before finishing down the field in a Group 3 at Leopardstown back in October. Off since then but has to be of interest back in a handicap. One to bear in mind if attracting support.

Showed willingness to battle when making a winning debut in April and was then far from disgraced behind a couple of potentially smart rivals at The Curragh. Obviously still learning but has the scope to go a lot further and makes plenty of appeal.

Has plenty of experience and has already enjoyed a profitable year (enjoyed 3 wins from 6 runs since January). Up 2lb for latest win a Navan and is now another that needs to put in a career-best effort to prevail on these terms.

Posted decent form as a juvenile and is an interesting type to be introduced to handicaps at this time of the season. Possible he'll need the run on his first outing since September but still looks one for the notebook whatever happens.

Betting

Forecast

Near Kettering (11/8), Khalaab (9/2), Rickrack (11/2), Nimitz (6/1), South East (10/1), Elm Grove (10/1), Nibiru (16/1)

Verdict

An interesting contest which has drawn together a few worth keep tabs on. South East certainly fits that profile and is one to bear in mind for future reference if nothing else, while Nibiru drops in class from the last time he was seen in action and cannot be discounted at this more realistic level. Near Kettering, on the other hand, has fitness on his side and still has scope to progress further in the handicapping ranks. He is rated as a big threat. However, preference goes to KHALAAB, who has a willing attitude and, having fared well against a couple of useful looking types at The Curragh in May, the Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned gets the nod as the one to be on.
