11/2

C&D winner who didn't really have to improve on his debut for this yard to take a Lingfield turf handicap on his penultimate run. Produced a rather laboured effort last time (showed some temperament) and will need to travel a little better here.

Has the assistance of a leading amateur and wasn't disgraced on his return from a break last time when matching strides with a game front-runner before fading. Return to this trip will suit better but may be better on the AW (well treated though).

Not quite at concert pitch this year although not far off it judged on his last run when taking 3rd over further at Leicester. Down below his last winning mark and won't lack for assistance from the saddle; could do with some softer ground.

Will feel at home around here (twice a course winner over shorter trips) and already proved himself to be in rude health this season with three wins. His last win came under this rider in a race that was run to suit; eased home and bit more needed.

Still a maiden if a lightly-raced one who made his handicap/AW debut last time stepping up in trip and having the run of the race. Gets in off the same mark here although he doesn't look to be progressing at all; still fairly treated.

Looked the sort who might progress in handicaps for Luca Cumani but that didn't really prove to be the case and he ran no sort of race for that yard when last seen. Makes his debut for a new yard now with some questions to answer.

Forecast

Compton Mill (11/4), Pactolus (11/4), White Turf (11/4), Hollywood Road (11/2), Biotic (13/2), Wilson (20/1)

Verdict

Anything ridden by Simon Walker is generally worth noting in the market and having won this race last year he takes the rides on Pactolus this time around who is appreciating the ease in grade/mark but may just be better on the AW. BIOTIC produced a near career-best last time when cruising through a Salisbury handicap under this rider and although this is tougher he’s chosen to win again. Compton Mill will be interesting when he gets some slightly softer ground while Hollywood Road needs to make sure his temperament doesn’t get the better of him. White Turf doesn’t have many miles on the clock but will need to find a little more to take this.
