- Double Delight Hat-Trick Heaven At totesport.com Handicap (Class 7)
- 1m 5f 66y, Standard
- 14 Runners
- Surface: Polytrack
Veteran; winner of a weak 2m race at Lingfield in May and off the track for 166-days since a lesser effort over 1m6f here next time; can race keenly.
15-race maiden; back from a mid-season break in much better form for his current trainer; 2lb higher than when beaten two necks by Ross Raith Rover over 1m2f here last month.
18-race AW maiden (1-32 overall); placed at big odds over 1m3f+ at Windsor in October and possibly needs soft ground to be most effective; first AW start since May 2017.
Far from a regular winner (her last success came over 7f at Brighton in July 2017); twice placed at Carlisle and Brighton (1m4f) in the concluding weeks of the turf season.
13lb lower than when scoring over 2m here in July 2017 but dismal since, including in a newly applied visor (left off today) just 15-days ago.
Head winner off this mark over 1m2f here in April, but not that many obvious ticks in the box since; experience over staying trips limited to his hurdling days (poor) for previous trainer Brian Ellison.
Hurdle winner; 0-21 on the Flat (0-13 on AW); keeping on sixth of 13 over 1m6f at Wolverhampton 12-days ago; couldn't be advised despite the notable booking of Rab Havlin.
1-15 on the AW; head runner up to New Street over 1m2f here in August; not so sharp since with stamina reserves an unknown commodity for an inexperienced rider.
Nine-race maiden, but remains less exposed than some; possibilities stamina wise (by Sir Percy) assuming that you opt to ignore her latest run at Southwell (surface?); first racecourse appearance for 215-days.
Bought out of a Stratford seller for £11,500 (from Tracey Barfoot-Saunt); mixed messages in two hurdles starts for this trainer (115-rated); races from a very low handicap mark on the Flat and that could be exploited.
8-70 career, but hasn't won since July 2017; started at odds of 33/1 when well beaten in an extended 1m4f Class 6 handicap at Newcastle latest; unappealing.
12-race maiden; shown bits and pieces of ability in 2018 and merits consideration based on his 4L course third to Sanam (1m6f) in July; poor show in first time cheekpieces (discarded) at Newcastle latest; wide draw unhelpful.
Half-sister to four winners in France (6f-1m), but has shown absolutely no sign of ability herself yet in four starts (incl on AW); weakened rapidly when a tailed-off last of eleven on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m2f, good to firm) in July.
Rip Van Winkle gelding; has done anything but set the world alight in four AW starts so far (1m+ to 1m4f), but this is a basement contest in which to be making a handicap debut (now sporting a visor), and he has stamina in his family line.
