6/4

Bounced back to form after a couple of disappointments last week when winning in good style despite a slow start over C&D. Only has to carry a 6lb penalty for that 4½L success and expected to be hard to beat here if returning in the same form.

Sole win on AW came on Tapeta at Wolverhampton and performed with credit at this course on just his second career start. Out of form towards the back end of the summer but has been given a break and may bounce back here.

Lost his maiden tag over C&D and followed up on Tapeta at Wolverhampton. Pulled up when last seen but has been given a break since and interesting to see how he fares in the market on return. Likely capable off this mark if fully fit.

Well beaten on two starts at this track as a juvenile but she improved as a three-year-old and certainly worth another crack on this surface. Her lack of consistency would be more of a concern and well beaten at Brighton last time out.

Just one win from 24 starts and that came on soft ground on turf. Often slow to break but has run well here, as seen when runner-up in November but not as effective here last time when they didn't go quick enough for him. Risky proposition.

Has improved for this yard, winning on Polytrack at Kempton in October before two more respectable efforts on that surface in November. Has each-way claims on Tapeta debut here.

Handicap mark is on the slide but she's been running okay in defeat, as seen over C&D last time out when 1lb out of the handicap. Remains capable off this mark and holds each-way claims.

Won a Lingfield maiden in 2017 and while he's not won since, his efforts at this track of late have been more encouraging. Finished his race off well last time and expected to go well again here.

Bounced back to form with a win on yard debut at Chelmsford last time but his overall record is patchy and looks opposable here from 5lb higher in a deeper race. Makes Tapeta debut.

Still a maiden after 22 starts and many of his better efforts have come over 6f rather than 7f. Has his first start at this distance and hard to fancy on all known form having been well beaten here on each of his last three starts.

C&D winner just short of one year ago and all three of his AW wins have come on Tapeta. Drop back in trip looks in his favour and has won from higher marks than this so can't be ruled out.

Very well-handicapped on his form from the summer of 2017 but has lost his way of late and has never looked at home on this surface; others preferred.

Has shown minor improvement with each start and not disgraced at Southwell last time out. Steps up in trip for handicap/Tapeta debut and interesting to see what the market makes of him. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

Forecast

Paparazzi (6/4), Silverturnstogold (13/2), King Oswald (17/2), Traveller (9/1), Squire (9/1), Somewhere Secret (11/1), Corked (12/1), Servo (14/1), Prancing Oscar (14/1), Valentino Boy (20/1), Kingofmerrows (25/1), Don't Be Surprised (28/1), Military Madame (50/1), Cosmic Ray (50/1)

Verdict

PAPARAZZI looks sure to go up plenty for his latest success when the handicapper has his say and he can take advantage under a penalty here. Traveller put in a much improved performance last time and runs well around here but Somewhere Secret could be the main danger if he gets a decent pace to aim at.
