9/2

Built on two promising efforts when winning a 1m Pontefract maiden to end last season. Lengthy absence since but won with plenty to spare at Pontefract and this yard can ready them after a break.

Further enhanced excellent record when winning after a break on stable debut latest at Sandown. 3lb rise for that not unduly harsh although it does give him a career high mark. Leading contender.

Pretty consistent overall and ran best race for some time latest at Newcastle (AW) when second of 14 beaten just a neck. 3lb rise again makes life tougher but can't be ruled out with return to turf no concern.

Gained seventh career success latest when narrowly scoring at Ffos Las in a 1m class 4 handicap. Only raised 2lb for winning that ordinary contest so still of some appeal here with excellent apprentice more than worth his claim.

Travelled strongly over 1m1f latest before run flattened out and she had to settle for third. Return to 1m should be beneficial based on that (both wins over 1m) and has to be considered here off the same mark.

Winner of back-to-back 1m handicaps at Newbury and Salisbury before down the field latest at Newbury after a break. Only 1lb higher than Salisbury win but that a weak four runner race so more to do here.

Won twice at Kempton earlier in the season on AW and done most of his racing on the surface since. Equally adept on turf and third last time on the surface a decent run but overall his appeal isn't as strong as some.

Dual South African winner left some poor UK form behind when winning at Redcar in August but two moderate efforts since at Chester including last of 11 most recently again make his appeal minimal.

Won all three starts at this course, twice over C&D. Impressive again latest when successful at Lingfield on the AW resulting in a career high mark. Toughest task yet but course form is persuasive.

Dual 6f winner has only once gone beyond that distance when seventh of 10 at Chester back in June. Fair runs in four starts since but 1m very much an unknown and doubtful he stays it.

Forecast

Dragons Voice (3/1), Secret Return (7/2), Christopher Wood (9/2), Glassy Waters (9/2), Awalii (8/1), Sir Plato (10/1), Optimum Time (11/1), Employer (12/1), Kenstone (14/1), Misty Birnam (16/1), Ginbar (16/1), Thechildren'strust (20/1), Kingston Kurrajong (25/1), Letsbe Avenue (33/1)

Verdict

OPTIMUM TIME clearly excels here given he's won all three starts and that can only bode well given he won impressively at Lingfield latest. Secret Return is obviously a threat and should be well suited by a return to 1m here having travelled really well last time. Dragons Voice has a great record and won well again last time out so must again enter considerations.
