59-9OR: 67
14/1

11-race AW maiden; lost his action when heavily eased over 7f here in May, and off the track for six months thereafter until reappearing at Windsor (6f) recently; risky.

On a long losing sequence, with his sole win coming over 5f on debut in June 2017; not fully exposed on the AW (0-3) and placed, beaten 3L by Busby at Kempton (6f) latest.

6f maiden winner for Roger Varian at Lingfield in June 2017, but 0-5 for this trainer since being bought for 45,000gns in November 2017; handicap mark tumbling.

3/1

Beaten in excess of 2L when finishing third to subsequent winner Busby over C&D in September, and now races from a 4lb lower mark; difficult to argue that she's an improving filly, but she has won a couple of races (5f-6f).

10/1

Off the mark at the 13th attempt when taking a 6f Yarmouth fillies handicap with more in hand than the winning ½L margin implies; 5lb higher in the weights, but her turn of foot could be an asset on the AW (0-1 previously).

Lost her way since winning for this rider at Leicester (5f, good to firm) in July and has something to prove on artificial surfaces; met trouble in running from the rear (33/1) over C&D in September.

On an upward curve having won two of her last three starts, including at odds of 50/1 over C&D latest; 3lb higher tonight, so more is required, but this isn't the deepest of races.

6/1

Continuing to struggle in the main (although fared marginally better in a tongue-tie at Kempton latest); handicap mark on the slide; 0-7 on the AW, so needs the further application of cheekpieces to provide the missing sections of the puzzle.

40/1

Still to hit the target (17-race maiden) and tumbling in the weights as a result; hasn't beaten all that many rivals in three previous AW starts, so a major surprise if he's the solution.

Betting

Forecast

Qallaab (11/4), Dreamboat Annie (3/1), Tundra (4/1), Catheadans Fury (9/2), Roland Rocks (9/2), Father Mckenzie (6/1), Princess Keira (10/1), Time To Reason (14/1), Sparkalex (20/1), Catapult (40/1)

Verdict

Mick Appleby bought QALLAAB for £16,000 in September, and it's fairly notable that this gelding drops back in trip for handicap debut, especially bearing in mind that he's a half-brother to a couple of sprint winners, including the 6f Listed scorer Forthefirsttime. Therefore, in a fairly low-key divided Class 6 handicap, he's preferred to the more exposed but improving fillies Princess Keira and Catheadans Fury, with Dreamboat Annie another to consider for the minor placings.
