20:00 Chelmsford City Thu 6 December 2018
Returns from hurdling in a realistic grade and over his ideal distance. Others probably better handicapped but could be competitive.
On a good mark at present and ran well down to this grade at Wolverhampton when unsuited by a slow temp. Step up in trip suits and can be involved again.
Cost 100,000 gns as a yearling and generally progressive in five starts for James Fanshawe without justifying the price tag. Sold last November for 23,000 gns and not seen since. Step up in trip should suit and worth a market check.
Showed improved form to win on handicap debut before disappointing when a beaten favourite up to this grade at Southwell. Looked unsuited by fibresand so could bounce back but drop in trip a negative.
Five-race maiden has run to a consistent level in her last three starts without improving. Possibilities but others more progressive.
Lightly-raced mare went close to a first handicap success over this C&D before disappointing at Kempton. Return here may suit and a realistic challenger in this grade.
Kempton winner four starts back and not far away from that in three starts since. Unlucky latest over this C&D when hampered after delivering a good looking run and should be primed to go well again.
Stamina concerns remains after a poor run over a half furlong shorter at Wolverhampton. Opposable again at a trip this far.
Has held his form for a while now and bids for a hat-trick following a career-best at Wolverhampton. Up another 5lb and in grade but should be competitive again.
Gained back-to-back wins here over this trip and two miles. Held off revised mark over this C&D since and despite 2lb drop, others remains better handicapped in a tougher race.
Has really struggled in seven well beaten starts since returning from an absence and remains best watched until signs of encouragement.
