Makes handicap debut at basement level. Has achieved little to warrant this mark, but may do so when learning to settle.

Improving sort who may do even better now stepping up to 6f again. Finished well last time after giving himself plenty to do and looks the one to beat on current form.

0-16 so far but has hinted at ability on more than one occasion. Can be fractious at the start and has often burnt herself out with nervous energy. Needs kidding along and looks risky from a punting point of view.

Six career wins include two AW victories. In good form currently and interesting her AW mark, which has usually mirrored that on turf, is now 6lb lower. Experienced rider on board and impossible to ignore.

AW record of 1-31 and not at his best on last two starts. Debuts for young trainer who is off to a good start.

Beat Watch Tan by 2L on turf this summer over 7f and renews rivalry on 8b better terms. C&D winner and talented claimer on board, but work to do in order to overcome a difficult draw if missing the break again.

Career best on penultimate start but back to previous more moderate levels last time. Regular rider partners Fairway To Heaven but able deputy booked.

Plenty of winning form down the years but 2018 has been a write off for him and hard to fancy on recent evidence.

12-race maiden who has barely beaten a rival on last three starts. Has been sidelined for three months and hard to fancy.

Has been struggling for a long time and wind surgery back in August doesn't seem to have had any effect.

Sole success from 14 starts came on debut in June last year. Last of 11 on latest start and impossible to fancy from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Broughton Excels (2/1), Spirit Of Zebedee (9/2), Fairway To Heaven (6/1), Drop Kick Murphi (6/1), Charlie Alpha (7/1), Watch Tan (11/1), Malaysian Boleh (14/1), Compton Prince (20/1), Classy Cailin (20/1), African Girl (33/1), Storm Trooper (50/1), Pranceabootthetoon (50/1)

Verdict

Broughton Excels is the only one in this with a progressive profile and his recent efforts indicate there may be more to come over this trip. However, SPIRIT OF ZEBEDEE has been on the top of his game on turf lately and there is no obvious reason why his AW mark should be 6lb lower. Drop Kick Murphi has a good record off this mark and looks booked to make the frame at least.
