Raced mainly on the AW since joining this trainer for 35,000gns in October 2017; 2lb higher than when beating King Of Nepal by a short-head (La Maquina fourth) over C&D in September.

Out of form on turf since springing a 33/1 shock at Windsor (6f) in June; 5-20 on the AW with his latest synthetics success coming off a 5lb lower mark at Wolverhampton (7f) in March; stablemate of Gentlemen.

Neck runner-up to Treacherous over C&D in June, and largely consistent since; wide draw in stall 13 not overly helpful.

33% AW strike-rate (2-6) following early season wins at Lingfield (7f) and Chelmsford (1m); has found her revised mark on turf to be a fraction too high (ran okay), so the blinkers are now applied seeking an extra edge.

Showed promise in early season Class 2 6f (turf) handicaps at Newmarket, but has proved disappointing in each of his last three appearances (twice on soft); 0-3 at Kempton (6f-7f).

Just 1lb higher than when winning over 7f at Chelmsford in January (all out), but wasn't far off the principals on turf at Beverley (7f+ good to soft) latest, form boosted by Zeshov (winner since); wide draw the concern.

Made all to down a John Gosden-trained hot-pot when breaking the maiden at Wolverhampton (7f) in February, but has struggled in competitive Class 4 turf handicaps (7f-1m) since; AW return a positive.

Disqualified after winning at Windsor (6f, good to firm) early last month, and as of yet has been unable to gain recompense; staying on close up fifth to Kamra (runner-up Outrage runs at Newcastle on Tuesday) over 6f here latest; chance.

Reliable AW performer (5-44); 2lb higher than when gamely making all to score by ½L from Noble Star in a Class 5 handicap over C&D last month (11/4f).

Lightly-raced after five career starts; has shown his best form over C&D, namely when finishing a close up fourth to the re-opposing Redgrave (Class 4 handicap); first-time cheekpieces applied (accompanies a tongue-tie); much respected.

Has limited AW experience (0-1), but connections turn to the Polytrack following a disappointing run on soft ground at Newbury (7f) last month; 3lb higher than when winning at Haydock (1m) in August.

Perfectly respectable AW strike-rate (6-39), but fitness is taken on trust having been absent from competitive action since early February; stablemate of Bernie's Boy; other days.

Nine-race maiden; finished off strongly when third to Insurgence over C&D in June (under David Egan); raced sparingly since, but must come into contention off the same mark if race-fit from a 117 day absence.

Just 1lb higher than when winning over 7f at Chelmsford in July, but has arguably taken a few backward steps on turf since (6f-7f); others are preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Redgrave (3/1), Quick Breath (5/1), Parnassian (11/2), Dark Side Dream (8/1), La Maquina (8/1), Gentlemen (10/1), Character Witness (12/1), Mesquite (16/1), No I'm Easy (16/1), Espresso Freddo (25/1), Nezar (25/1), Michael Corleone (25/1), Galloway Hills (33/1), Bernie's Boy (50/1)

Verdict

A competitive 14-runner handicap in which the interesting horse is the returning three-year-old Character Witness. However, plenty of others hold fairly similar claims based upon more recent C&D form, so feasibly might have a race-fitness advantage tonight. Parnassian was disqualified after winning at Windsor last month, but has knocked at the door since, with his latest close-up fifth to Kamra (6f) possibly given a timely form boost by the runner-up Outrage (runs at Newcastle on Tuesday). However, the selection is the unexposed (and now cheekpieced) LA MAQUINA who finished hot on the heels (fourth) behind the re-opposing winner Redgrave over C&D 25 days ago.
