Career best effort when finishing 7L fourth over an extended 2m at Taunton (good) last month. Worth a check in the market on handicap bow.

Betting

Forecast

Trans Express (9/2), Floresco (9/2), Galactic Power (9/2), Copperhead (5/1), Macksville (11/2), Peur De Rien (8/1), William B (8/1), Broughtons Admiral (9/1), Nifty At Fifty (9/1), Nigh Or Never (16/1), Drama King (16/1)

Verdict

DRAMA KING ran well for a long way at Ascot last time out and this drop in trip can see him make a winning handicap debut in the opening race on the card. Macksville was in good form when last in action and can take second on his first start since wind surgery. Trans Express has been running well of late and he can follow up his third here last time out by filling the same position in this contest.
