Started out in bumpers but has switched to the Flat but has only run the three times looking as though he needs to settle better to be able to make his mark. Now makes his handicap debut off what looks to be a stiff enough mark.

Twice a course winner over shorter trips he's run well enough after his comeback run this year if on occasions looking rather laboured. He does find for pressure though and was only beaten by a thriving winner (Ana Lichious) last time.

Now makes the switch to handicaps having shown very little so far and steps up significantly in trip this time (has been tried at this distance before). Would be a shock if he was good enough to compete off this mark.

Turned in his best effort of the winter when introduced to the Fibresand surface at Southwell winning a very weak race over 1m. Not seen at that venue since and has been seen on three occasions, the last a respectable turf effort over this trip at Sl

Not the most reliable type with a record that reads 0-16 overall. There are a few respectable efforts to his name though but his temperament remains under suspicion and he's not one to rely on.

Took advantage of a reduced mark when winning at Carlisle (well-supported) over 1m1f on his 5th handicap start. Back up in trip (1m4f) and the weights last time at Pontefract he may not have stayed; still has more scope than some of these.

Mark continues to fall without her looking as though she is capable of taking advantage with the headgear remaining in place. Basically summed up by her 0-19 Flat record and hard to recommend here.

This will be her third run since an unreported breathing operation and she stepped up on her previous form last time with a 3rd at Hamilton (career-best run). Has to now build on that from just out of the handicap over 1f further.

A career record of 0-36 is hardly one to give her a leading chance and it would need to be a very poor/weak contest to make her of any interest. Last couple of runs have been very below-par and comes with obvious risks attached if supported.

Favourite when winning over C&D just over three years ago but has been subjected to two longs absences since then and looks far from one who has retained any ability. Now returns from another period off the track; hard to recommend.

Makes her debut for the yard having been successful on the AW in May for her former stable and ran well enough for the same connections on turf last time. Seen to maximum effect when winning though and even this mark may test her.

Forecast

Kuiper Belt (10/11), Remember Rocky (3/1), French Resistance (7/2), Lucky Red (4/1), Qasr (13/2), Mzuri (10/1), Pammi (11/1), Romantic (14/1), Cool Run Girl (16/1), Hellavashock (25/1), Eyreborn (28/1), Burnieboozle (33/1), Wolf Heart (50/1), Indie Groove (50/1)

Verdict

Hard to think of a horse in training who is better handicapped at the moment and if another quick return doesn’t catch up with him after winning on back-to-back days then KUIPER BELT should complete a very quick Flat hat-trick. He had little more than an exercise canter on Saturday and despite the shorter trip his smooth-travelling style should be able to cope with it. He may not have it as easy as he did on Saturday and Remember Rocky has been running well of late although he has bumped into another thriving sort. The shorter trip may help French Resistance with Cool Run Girl another to look at if she can build on her last run along with Pammi making her first start for the Goldie yard.
