49-3OR: 70
13/2

Shown some fair form in handicaps although her consistency means the handicapper is unwilling to cut her much slack. Drops in trip here having disappointed in her one previous run at this track; chance at the weights but needs to find some form.

13/2

Two-time course winner over an extended 1m (scored back-to-back handicap wins last year) but only seen on three occasions since his last victory. Only finished fourth in this company last time he was seen; cheekpieces worn for both wins return now.

13/8

Successful on his first run for this yard (without headgear; weak handicap) and taking advantage of a much reduced handicap mark (reported to have finished lame). Found life much tougher over 7f here last time off 5lb higher mark; better at shorter.

9/1

Multiple course winner with seven of his wins coming over C&D the latest in December (most of them much longer ago) when he was going through a good spell. Not in quite the same form since then (can be slow away); should be involved at this level.

78-9OR: 59CD
4/1

Fair handicapper on his day (has won over C&D) but the 1m4f trip he tried in this grade here last time looked much too far (given plenty to do). Makes his debut for this yard; better at this trip but little bit to do at the weights.

78-9OR: 69CD
7/1

Four-time Flat winner (has ability amongst his various quirks); he still looks to be finding his form after missing a large part of last year. Has won over C&D and whilst he's not one for maximum faith this is a drop in grade for a yard going well.

Betting

Forecast

Anif (13/8), Pike Corner Cross (4/1), Brexitmeansbrexit (13/2), Street Poet (13/2), Red Touch (7/1), Berlusca (9/1)

Verdict

An unappealing contest in betting terms with question marks over all the runners. A chance is taken that the reappearance of the cheekpieces (worn for both his course wins) will spark a revival over this slightly longer trip for STREET POET. Berlusca is no stranger to winning around here but most of those victories came in his younger days. Pike Corner Cross has work to do at the weights while this trip may just stretch Anif. Red Touch isn’t the most straightforward but he looks to be working his way back to form and can’t be ignored in this grade with the assistance of Luke Morris a plus.
