4/5

Has looked a natural on the AW in winning two from three including over this C&D last time when beating Areen Heart. Won with a bit in hand quickening well of a strong pace and should have plenty more to offer. Likely to go close again.

Last three wins came over this C&D and should be better for his recent solid effort over a mile following a 240-day absence. Won on his second run back in March and suited by drop back in distance. Looks primed to go well.

1-14 on the AW, and without a win since February 2017 (Doha). First run since October and although he can go well fresh, he was out of form when last seen and this is another tough ask.

8/1

C&D winner off 4lb lower before five placed efforts in a row. Stable a touch quiet at present and struggled up to this grade when good run came to end over a mile last time. Suited by drop in trip but this could be too tough again.

Sole success came in a maiden but caught the eye running on too late over 6f at Wolverhampton and step back up a furlong should suit. Place possibilities although this is a step up in grade.

Now 9lb lower than last winning mark which came over 6f at this track. However has yet to fire in six starts since joining this yard and this is stronger company than last two runs.

Veteran was in good form back in September with a win and a second at Chester. Up another 1lb but was rated over 100 in his heyday. This though is stronger company and fitness has to be taken on trust.

Won this race last year off 7lb higher but without a win since. Better effort over this C&D last time and looked as though he would be fitter for the run. Should be primed for a good run but this is stronger still.

Betting

Forecast

Keyser Soze (4/5), Take The Helm (11/2), Areen Heart (8/1), Mickey (8/1), Swift Approval (9/1), Reckless Endeavour (10/1), Apex King (16/1), Intransigent (25/1), Mr Scaramanga (33/1)

Verdict

KEYSER SOZE has plenty of upside and the manner of his C&D success, when displaying smart acceleration, suggested that he could still be ahead of the handicapper. Considering he still looked in need of the run, Take The Helm ran well last time and along with last year's winner Swift Approval, should be spot on for this.
  1. Keyser Soze
  2. Take The Helm
