Showed some promise in France and joined current stable after changing hands for €38,000 last month. Mark looks stiff enough at first glance, but the market should be a decent guide as to expectations.

Came good at the sixth attempt when winning here over C&D (good to firm) last month. Up 4lb for that and there looked to be more to come, so can run a big race in trying to follow up.

Scored at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) on debut in February for Martyn Meade, for whom she has twice run well since (1m2f/1m). Changed hands for 20,000gns last month and makes stable/handicap debut from a feasible mark. Interesting.

Scored at Newbury (7f, good to firm) in June, when 7lb lower and twice went close back there from 2lb lower than today. More needed from this mark after what we saw last time, but not ruled out.

Improved with each run this season until winning at Chepstow (1m, good to firm) last month, when 4lb lower. Disappointed when favourite to follow up at Windsor last time, but if you can forgive him that then he is entitled to be considered.

Betting

Forecast

Recollect (1/1), Makambe (5/2), Ragstone View (6/1), Paco's Prince (10/1), Autretot (11/1), Fabianski (14/1)

Verdict

Fabianski is interesting on his handicap debut from this mark and a very competitive effort is anticipated, but RECOLLECT looked to have a little bit up his sleeve when scoring over C&D last time, and he is taken to follow up. Ragstone View, Paco's Prince and Makambe can't be ruled out, but do have to come back from lesser efforts last time, while French winner Autretot merits a market check on his British debut.
