9/2

Useful handicapper who wasn't seen to anything like his full effect last time and could well have gone close under different tactics. Off the same mark (95) here, a career-low and clearly has been given a chance to return to winning form.

4/1

Course winner over 7f but his losing run is starting to mount and he's 0-8 in handicaps having been campaigned at the highest level earlier in his career. Gets another chance off a career-low mark now and looks a player back up in trip.

A winner on this card last year at a lower level it was a victory that sparked off a four-timer that saw her rise rapidly in the handicap (62 to 84). Ran one good race as her winning spree came to an end but finished the season on a downbeat note.

Looked to have produced a career-best to get off the mark for the season when winning off a 3lb lower mark over 1m4f. Has contested two even deeper races since with predictable results; trip (1m2f) too sharp last time and more of the same here.

Versatile sort who has done well this year winning twice over shorter trips but two good placed runs have managed to push him higher in the handicap. Slow starts are hampering him even further and he's likely to find one or two too strong again.

Twice a course winner including a C&D win coming from a yard who have a good record here (yard also in good form). Needed his comeback run here over C&D in a slowly-run affair that wasn't run to suit; off a competitive mark.

Element of at last putting everything together in his back-to-back handicap wins earlier in the season and for the most past he's continued to run well. Back to his best last time over this trip but did get a touch outpaced and may need further now.

14/1

Irish raider who drops down in trip after racing too keenly and not getting home at Galway last time. Both his wins so far have come on the AW but he's capable enough on turf; hood now goes on after the keen display last time (mark a little high).

7/1

Lightly-raced sort (made a good impression so far) winning on his debut (AW), form that has worked out well; took another step forward last time. His win on his handicap debut showed that he was still upwardly mobile; visor needs to continue to work.

11/1

All of his best form has been shown at the course with four wins here (two over C&D). Dipped back to his last winning mark last time and down in grade he returned to form under a change of tactics (went from the front); won't have it as easy here.

38-9OR: 84CD
8/1

Form here reads 61411 (never run elsewhere) and he continued his race-to-race progression last time with his third C&D win. Won a shade cosily but is now forced up in grade off a 5lb higher mark and will need to improve again to hold his own.

Betting

Forecast

Kings Gift (4/1), Not So Sleepy (9/2), Speed Company (11/2), Good Boy Alfie (7/1), Glasses Up (8/1), Royal Regent (11/1), Stonific (12/1), Wooster (14/1), Dance King (14/1), Zabeel Star (16/1), Sepal (33/1)

Verdict

Without doubt the race of the day with both Not So Sleepy and King’s Gift capable of winning something like this off their current marks although they do face some progressive rivals who receive weight. A few of them though will despite that factor need to prove themselves off their current marks although GOOD BOY ALFIE isn’t one of those and he looks progressive and can defy his current rating. Speed Company ticks plenty of boxes on his return to this venue having looked to need his comeback run while the improving Glasses Up has to prove himself in this grade as he defends his unbeaten C&D record.
  1. Good Boy Alfie
  2. Speed Company
  3. Not So Sleepy
