Improving with racing this term and registered a fourth career success when winning over C&D on good ground last month. One to note despite a 3lb rise in the weights.

Finished runner-up over C&D on her two most recent starts. Beaten 3½L on good ground last time out and likely to run well once more.

Sole success came on second start at two. Held on all four starts since joining this yard and worth a check in the market stepping up in distance.

Dual winner this season most recently over C&D just under two weeks ago. Held up that day and an interesting contender off a 2lb higher mark.

Ended last season in good form with three consecutive placed efforts. Struggled in two starts this term however. Market support would be significant in this contest.

Decent fourth over C&D on good ground at the end of last month. Handicap mark is gradually coming down and has won off a much higher mark in the past.

Pulled up on final outing of last season and well beaten on all six starts this term. Well handicapped on his old form but others hold stronger claims.

Betting

Forecast

Reinforced (11/4), Naples Bay (3/1), Zoravan (5/1), Grinty (5/1), Forever A Lady (7/1), Royal Duchess (8/1), Inexes (12/1), Sultan Baybars (14/1), Majeste (14/1), Royal Connoisseur (14/1), Heir of Excitement (20/1), Columbia Kid (50/1)

Verdict

A winner over C&D last time out REINFORCED is taken to follow up in this competitive 7f handicap. Forecast underfoot conditions should suit the selection and he can get the better of course specialist Royal Duchess while third place can go to Forever A Lady who wasn't beaten far last time.
  1. Reinforced
  2. Royal Duchess
