- Stewards Handicap (Div 1) (Class 5)
- 1m 2f, Good to Soft (Soft in places)
- 11 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Without a win this season, but has some very solid form. 5lb claimed this time and a repeat of either of his best efforts, one of which came at Nottingham last time, could see him get his nose back in front.
0-15, but placed on nine occasions. Beaten 2L from 1lb higher in an amateurs' race last time. Should be thereabouts, but more needed to break his duck.
Made all to win over this trip at Bath (good to firm) last time. Up 5lb for that decisive success. Can make a good fist of this follow-up attempt.
Scored at Chester (7f, good to soft) in his second start last year, but yet to win a handicap. Beaten 9L when upped to this trip at Chester in September, but worth another try over it with 3lb drop and new headgear combi. Not written off.
Best effort in three maidens was last year on his second start at Doncaster (7f, soft). Should benefit from his recent reappearance after being off for over a year. Initial mark not frightening and he is very interesting stepped up in trip.
Back in better form of late, winning at Hamilton and going close from this mark at Pontefract last time. If the ground changes to the soft side of good, he will not be too far away.
Held on AW on his only two starts since being gelded. Dropping to the sort of mark from which he should be effective and he is another who won't mind if the ground turns softer. Interesting.
Scored here over 5f (good to soft) in August 2017, his sole success from 18 starts. Not sure he got home when tried over this trip last time. Drops 1lb, but has a bit to prove.
Improved to win for the first time on just her second handicap start (1m2f, good to firm) at Windsor last month. The fourth there has since won, so the form looks solid enough. 3lb higher, but open to further progress.
0-8. Went close from 5lb higher at Kempton in May, but much more needed to win this on what we have seen from him since.
Unexposed and ran well over 1m4f (good) at Ffos Las two starts ago, when on this mark. Soft ground a possible excuse last time. More needed but not written off.
