Improved on seasonal debut when finishing 1L third at Hamilton (6f, soft) in June. Absent since and best efforts have come on ground quicker than forecast.

In good form so far this season and was a C&D winner by a nose on good ground last time. Raised 3lb for that success and of interest once more.

Held on both starts in the spring most recently over 6f at Chepstow (soft) in early June. Interesting to see how he fares on his return from a break.

Justified favouritism when victorious over C&D on good-to-firm ground a month ago. Held off this 3lb higher mark here subsequently and interesting to see how he fares.

Returning from a break when weakening into seventh in a 7f contest at Wolverhampton last month. Shapes as if a return to this trip will suit.

Beaten just a head over C&D on good-to-firm ground a month ago. Well beaten in a first time tongue tie (absent here) subsequently and one to note with a visor fitted for the first time.

Promising handicap debut when beaten 3L into third at Doncaster (6f, soft) in April. Well held over 5f on the AW on only subsequent outing and remains open to improvement back up in trip on her return to turf.

Ran well to finish runner-up over C&D on good-to-firm ground in June. Disappointing here subsequently and others hold more obvious claims.

Handicap mark is falling following some moderate efforts this season. Finished mid-division in first time cheekpieces (retained) over 5f here last time and probably best watched at present.

Maiden after six starts but signs of possible improvement when 5L sixth over 7f on good ground here last time. Wears a hood for the first time.

Betting

Forecast

Duncan Of Scotland (10/3), Benjamin Thomas (4/1), Yes You (5/1), Leeshaan (7/1), Vallarta (10/1), Your Pal Tal (10/1), First Bombardment (14/1), Khelman (14/1), Sienna Dream (16/1), Ancient Astronaut (16/1), Star Cracker (20/1), Cheeni (20/1), Hell Of A Lady (20/1), Retirement Beckons (33/1), Griffin Street (33/1), Goninodaethat (40/1)

Verdict

The application of a visor can see YOUR PAL TAL register a victory in this highly competitive sprint handicap. Johnny Levins charge ran well here on his penultimate start and can see off recent winner Duncan Of Scotland who was successful here last time out. Third place can go to Vallarta who has won over C&D already this term.
  1. Your Pal Tal
  2. Duncan Of Scotland
