33/1

Four runs here over C&D have yet to produce a frame finish including on his latest start where he was always behind and finished well held. New headgear now tried having fallen quickly in the handicap; first time in this grade, wide draw.

9/2

Dual course winner over 6f with back-to-back victories completing a hat-trick in early 2017 but has built up a long losing run since. Change of stable and a wind op have failed to bring him back to form; fallen rapidly in the weights.

14/1

Dual course winner with one of those victories coming over this trip who returns from a sizeable absence. 3lb above her last winning mark but now in a much lesser grade than when last seen. Yard going well and worth noting a market move; drawn wide.

11/2

Modest sort who is often handicapped by his free-going nature and needs to settle better to be of real interest. Recent third over C&D his best piece of current form. Now 3lb lower but only has a maiden win to his name; overall record unappealing.

C&D winner in May has been rather inconsistent since although best runs generally come here. 3lb lower than winning mark now after three straight midfield efforts. Capable but not the most reliable.

Very lightly-raced for one of her age and she now makes her handicap debut stepping back up to this trip for the second time. Looks limited on the evidence presented so far and makes little appeal even off this lowly mark.

11/2

C&D winner whose last two wins have come under today's rider but is without a win since August 2017 off a 12lb higher mark. Easy to back when last seen over 1m but ran with credit; looked as though he may be ready to strike again if ready to go.

9/2

Showed some ability on his first run of the year over 5f (trip too short); failed to build on that promise next time before returning to form last time. 0-7 at 7f (placed once) but not totally written off in a weak contest.

6/1

Forced an overly strong pace last time which compromised his effort. Still a maiden and 1lb out of the handicap here so while not one to totally ignore he's probably better at 6f. Now tried in a first-time visor.

78-12OR: 45
40/1

Modest handicapper who has made very little impact of late; last two runs have been over hurdles (well beaten both times). Usually very slow away and fails to settle all of which means he makes very limited appeal even in this grade.

100/1

0-11 and has looked poor in her two runs for this yard since moving from Keith Dalgleish. Well beaten in a minor event last time out over C&D; hard to think she will be breaking her maiden on what she's shown so far.

Betting

Forecast

Distant Applause (4/1), Lord Cooper (9/2), Brother In Arms (9/2), Caledonia Laird (5/1), Dark Confidant (11/2), Aljunood (11/2), Canimar (6/1), Secret Lightning (14/1), Purbeck Gem (20/1), Frozen Lake (33/1), Captain Marmalade (40/1), Play With Me (100/1)

Verdict

A modest start to the eight-race card with DISTANT APPLAUSE given a chance two build on his recent Chelmsford win returned to 7f from a decent draw with the first-time tongue tie likely to prove beneficial. The wide draw is slightly off putting for Secret Lightning but the jockey booking takes the eye and Dark Confidant can’t be left out of the equation having looked to be coming to the boil when last seen. Most of the others make little solid appeal although Canimar and Brother In Arms can be given a small chance on some of their past form.
