69-9OR: 97C
6/4

On a lengthy losing streak, but in truth his AW strike-rate (2-8) is respectable; drops back into a Class 3 handicap for the first time since April, and should hold every chance based upon his second placed finish over 1m here in September.

Back from a three-year absence (formerly with Saeed Bin Suroor) in competitive shape for the majority of 2018; head runner up to Zwayyan in a 1m optional claimer here in August; trainer also saddles Barrington.

Notched back-to-back wins on turf during the summer (7f-7½f) and has kept decent company from an elevated handicap mark since; runner up on his last AW start in April (7f, Lingfield).

9/2

2-17 on the AW; comfortably held sixth of 12 to Victory Wave over C&D in September (Class 2); entitled to be competitive off this sort of handicap mark, so it'll be no surprise to see an improved showing from a handy draw.

Runner up on his first two AW starts (1m) at the turn of the year, and he's now 8lb lower than when beaten a head by Sovereign Duke at Kempton (January); could prove sharper for a recent Newbury run (his first start in four months).

Sand winner at Laytown (7f) on debut for Jamie Osborne in September, and has a thoroughly admirable overall AW strike-rate (7-30); 3lb lower than when runner up in the Beeswing at Newcastle (7f) in July.

Stablemate of Greatest Journey; hasn't raced beyond 6f on the AW thus far (0-2), but was a winner over that trip at Nottingham (firm) in June; couldn't be totally dismissed from an ever easing handicap mark if the application of a visor assists.

Hasn't raced on the AW since late 2016 (did appear to handle Tapeta); travelled smoothly into contention when scoring decisively at Yarmouth (7f, good to soft) in August, but a shade below par in two runs since.

Betting

Forecast

Firmament (6/4), Florencio (9/2), Swift Approval (9/2), Sea Fox (7/1), Greatest Journey (8/1), Colonel Frank (12/1), Barrington (20/1), Albishr (25/1)

Verdict

A tight handicap in which very few can be confidently dismissed. A couple of the runners (namely Firmament and Sea Fox) should theoretically appreciate the ease in grade after regularly competing in Class 2 handicaps. A case can be made for the 3yo Albishr from a much reduced handicap mark based upon his early 2018 AW form (Kempton), but the tentative selection is SWIFT APPROVAL. Well drawn in stall two, this AW regular returns from a short break after a hectic spell of racing in September (ran thrice in seven days), so at the projected odds, it'll come as no surprise if improvement if forthcoming.
