1m on soft ground his ideal conditions and not disgraced at Ayr last time out when third off this career high mark. Each-way claims again.

Won a maiden at Southwell on debut and while he's been a little inconsistent for this yard, there's a suspicion he's becoming well-handicapped. Wide draw probably won't help though.

Well suited to soft ground and improved from seasonal reappearance with a pair of placed efforts. De Sousa rides for the first time here and feasibly handicapped.

Ended a losing run at Musselburgh in September and has held his form well in defeat in two starts since, most notably last time out where he met some trouble in running. Still on a workable handicap mark and should go well.

Won off this mark at Chepstow earlier in the campaign but all his recent wins have come over further than this and wide draw not ideal here for a horse that likes to be prominent.

Losing run goes all the way back to handicap debut in 2015 and still only 7lb below that winning mark despite some poor efforts of late. Hard to fancy.

Belatedly lost his maiden tag over C&D but has struggled a little to build on that in three starts since. Has been freshened up since his latest outing though and the handicapper has given him a chance.

Was in good form towards the end of last summer but had been disappointing this campaign before an improved effort at Beverley last time out. Needs to build on that now though and not well draw here.

Hit form not long after joining this yard lin 2017 but he's been a little inconsistent this campaign. Had excuses last time (stumbled when asked for effort) but hold up style not entirely suited to this track despite holding a course win.

Yet to win in nine starts and his better efforts have come on quicker ground than what he's going to get here. Needs to improve.

Still a maiden after 11 starts and has been struggling throughout this campaign. Slow to break last time at Ayr from his reduced mark and hard to enthuse about at present.

Ran well here earlier in the season and returned to form with a better effort last time out but she's out of the handicap here and losing run stretches back to 2016.

In fine form of late and only up 3lb for a win at Ayr last time out. Less exposed than plenty of these and drawn well to attack from this stall.

Betting

Forecast

Glorious Poet (10/3), Zeshov (7/2), Mustaqbal (6/1), Power Sail (7/1), Gabrials Centurion (9/1), Beverley Bullet (9/1), Weld Al Emarat (14/1), Frankster (20/1), Cadeau Magnifique (20/1), Placebo Effect (22/1), Essenaitch (25/1), Totally Magic (25/1), Pumaflor (25/1), Milan Reef (33/1), Bob Maxwell (40/1)

Verdict

POWER SAIL has hit some form and the unexposed three-year-old could be hard to peg back on the front end here. Zeshov is another who arrives in form while Weld Al Emarat is capable of getting his head in front from this sort of handicap mark.
