59-12OR: 96D
9/4

Tough campaigner, who has found himself a tad high in the weights to be effective in sprint handicaps this season. However, he's got valuable experience of this polytrack surface and, with the first time cheekpieces, he should not be underestimated.

C&D winner last summer but hasn't been in the same sort of form this season. Worth a try in this grade but needs to prove he retains a willingness to battle.

7/2

Started 2018 off with a spell in Dubai but form has taken a dip since returning to these shores. Last won on good to soft ground and needs to be at his best to break his duck on an AW surface.

Not won for almost three years and has a bit to find with Tupi judging by past form at Meydan. Needs everything to go his way.

89-1OR: 85D
33/1

Finished last in both previous starts this season and plenty to find on that evidence. Given a solid chance at the weights but plenty to prove on his first run at this particular course.

20/1

Landed a hat trick of wins at Southwest earlier in the year but is another that appears to have found handicap opportunities are limited. Place claims at best at the weights but recent form has been poor and needs to up his game considerably.

Betting

Forecast

Mazzini (15/8), Reckless Endeavour (9/4), Tupi (7/2), Polybius (5/1), Out Do (6/1), Hyperfocus (14/1), Monks Stand (20/1), Go Far (33/1)

Verdict

The drop into a claimer can give RECKLESS ENDEAVOUR a confidence booster and he can put his experience of this course to good use and uphold the Wokingham firm with Out Do and Tupi, who look the pick of the opposition. The latter being the effective on an AW surface and gets the nod as the best alternative.
  1. Reckless Endeavour
  2. Tupi
  3. Out Do
