4/1

Made the frame in three of his four AW starts, including when beaten just 2L by Daddy's Poppit over C&D in September; raced keenly when producing a more moderate performance at Kempton (6f) last week.

Well regarded early doors as a juvenile by former trainer Richard Guest, but has broadly failed to live up to such lofty expectations, and is now also 0-2 for new trainer Richard Spencer; handicap mark easing.

Back to winning ways from an 8lb lower mark at Wolverhampton (6f) last month when powering clear of Curious Fox by 3L; still reasonably treated on his peak form of old, and this is a very modest contest overall.

Well beaten on both starts (6f) since scoring with authority over 7f at Dunstall Park Wolverhampton in September; tries a change of scenery in order to rejuvenate; still 4lb above last winning mark; risky.

Produced a tame effort on return from a near five month break over C&D last month (finished last of nine); that said, is generally reliable at this track overall, and has place claims if able to reproduce his March/April form.

Not very many positives to take from her more recent efforts, but she's just 2lb higher than when winning at Wolverhampton (6f) in July, so that's at least something to cling onto in terms of hopes for a revival.

Doesn't win all that often (2-16 on turf) and remains a six-race AW maiden, but is fairly consistent on the whole; started 6/4f when beaten ½L by Magicinthemaking over C&D last month.

Hasn't won since 2016 (5f) when trained by Peter Hedger, but has been on the premises on a few occasions lately, including when short-headed by Flowing Clarets on second start for this trainer at Windsor (5f, good to soft) in October.

21-race maiden who hasn't stepped forward since switched to Declan Carroll. Rather ambitiously tackles a new (and much reduced) trip after competing over 1m2f-1m4f on each of his last three starts.

Betting

Forecast

Wotadoll (11/4), Turanga Leela (7/2), Kraka (4/1), Fink Hill (8/1), John Joiner (8/1), Charleston Belle (8/1), Precious Plum (10/1), Pindaric (12/1), Billyoakes (20/1), Brockey Rise (25/1)

Verdict

A fairly weak finale (a divided Class 6 handicap), so the sound advice is to stick with the back to form TURANGA LEELA. She powered clear of Curious Fox when winning at Wolverhampton 19 days ago, and despite an 8lb rise in the weights is still fairly well treated on her peak form of old. Others to consider as perhaps more financially rewarding each-way options are the Chelmsford proven Billyoakes, and the Dean Ivory-trained Wotadoll.
