79-11OR: 97CD
9/1

C&D winner back in 2017 but hasn't won since and seemingly lost his way completely of late. Still above his last winning handicap mark and hard to fancy at present.

9/2

Two-time course winner in 2017 and enjoyed a fruitful campaign last winter, winning four times at Southwell before making it a five-timer on return to turf. Not beaten far in a competitive handicap at Doncaster last time and capable off this mark.

9/2

In fine form of late, following up two placed efforts around here with a win on Tapeta at Wovlerhampton. Not quite in the same form at Lingfield when last seen but he's failed to fire at that course before and warrants respect back here.

11/2

Three-time C&D winner who was only narrowly denied at Kempton last time. Clearly still improving at present and respected with just a 1lb rise to cope with.

99-4OR: 90D
13/2

Yet to win in 10 AW runs but only narrowly denied by Outrage over C&D in November and 3lb better off at the weights with that rival here. Produced a solid effort at Southwell and signs in recent days the yard are starting to fire; each-way claims.

89-3OR: 89DWS
8/1

Losing run goes all the way back to 2016 and while he had been running okay in defeat back in the summer, he's got a poor record when fresh. Has his first start since wind surgery here and looks opposable.

89-1OR: 87CD
33/1

13-time AW winner who gained a C&D success last year and won later in the season at Chelmsford. Often slowly away in his races and has never won from a mark this high so probably best watched in a race this competitive.

Struggling for any sort of form of late and finished last of 14 here when last seen in November. Clearly talented but hard to fancy in current form.

58-9OR: 81BF
9/1

Won two of his first three starts and his only AW run was a respectable effort at Chelmsford in August. Disappointed on his last couple of turf starts though and probably best watched on return. Wears first-time tongue-tie.

48-7OR: 79CD
11/1

C&D winner who gained a third career success when winning at Wovlerhampton last time out. Up 3lb but not as exposed as several in here and his ability to act on the surface is a huge plus.

Betting

Forecast

Foolaad (9/2), El Hombre (9/2), Outrage (11/2), Watchable (13/2), Boom The Groom (8/1), Equitation (9/1), Atletico (9/1), Primo's Comet (11/1), Bengali Boys (14/1), Dynamo Walt (33/1)

Verdict

A particularly competitive feature event on the card and it's difficult to put a line through any of the runners declared but EL HOMBRE clearly has a liking for this surface. It would be no surprise to see the five-year-old bounce back here after his disappointment on Polytrack last time and young jockey Callum Rodriguez rides this track as well as anyone. Foolad has won two of his four starts around here and won't be far away if ready on his return while Outrage is another runner with a good course record who appears to still be improving.
