Returned to winning ways with victory in a 1m4f contest at Epsom (good-to-soft) last time out. Raised 4lb for that success and is of interest once more.

Some decent efforts in defeat since winning over this trip on the AW in April. Disappointed last time however and interesting to see how she fares on her return to turf.

Placed over an extended 1m5f at Newbury (good-to-firm) in July but disappointed the last twice. More needed dropping in distance with a visor applied for the first time.

Finished a neck second over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (good) on his penultimate outing. Disappointing odds-on favourite on the AW subsequently however.

Maiden after nine starts and failed to shine in four starts this term. Stepping up in distance when well held over 1m4f last time and others make more appeal.

Five race maiden and held on both starts in handicaps so far. Remains open to improvement but others hold stronger claims.

Placed over hurdles in June but failed to place in six subsequent starts in that sphere. Well held off a 4lb higher mark when last in action in this sphere.

Good effort in finishing a close third in a four runner C&D contest just under a fortnight ago. Likely more needed in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Safarhi (9/4), Foresee (3/1), Howardian Hills (3/1), Poucor (11/2), Artic Nel (6/1), The Bear Can Fly (9/1), Homing Star (10/1), Rock'n Gold (12/1), Bird For Life (14/1), Ochos Rios (14/1), Ali The Hunter (25/1), Distant High (33/1)

Verdict

HOWARDIAN HILLS won off a higher mark on the AW last time and he is taken to record a first turf victory in this competitive looking handicap. The selection has the trip to suit and can get the better of Safarhi who can put a disappointing effort last time out behind him to take second. Foresee carries top weight here and can follow-up his last time out victory with a third racing off a 4lb higher mark here.
  1. Howardian Hills
  2. Safarhi
  3. Foresee
