99-7OR: 60D
11/2

Irish import who has shaped well to be placed on both starts over 5f at this venue for current trainer. Long time since he won, but has each-way claims over a longer trip which ought to suit.

Has failed to get his head in front since joining this handler from Mick Channon. Has had wind surgery since last outing in July and is worth a check in the market given his lenient handicap mark.

49-6OR: 59CD
11/10

Fourth start and his first in a handicap when scoring well over C&D last month. Up 5lb, but must surely have improvement in him and looks the one to beat.

In good form in the autumn, winning races at Hamiton and Catterick. Modest AW record, though, and this return to action may be a warm-up for the forthcoming turf season.

59-2OR: 55BFD
14/1

Has not won for almost two years, but has attracted support on last two starts and has run respectably, latterly in first-time blinkers which are replaced by cheekpieces. Bit to find on balance.

One win in 19 races and latest efforts have generally been disappointing. Hopes seem to be pinned on first-time blinkers.

Gradually coming to the boil in three starts after a wind operation, latterly when fourth of 10 over 5f at this track. Longer trip no problem and falling rating offers further hope.

78-10OR: 49CD

Best effort for quite a while when a neck second of 10 over C&D earlier this month. Down another 2lb so certainly has a chance if he can build on that display.

58-7OR: 45
50/1

No wins in nine starts and last two runs have not suggested that record is about to change for the better. A hood is fitted in a bid to eke out some improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Ginger Jam (11/10), Steelriver (11/2), Star Cracker (7/1), Milton Road (8/1), Rockley Point (12/1), Essential (12/1), Queen Of Kalahari (14/1), Lord Cooper (14/1), High Anxiety (50/1)

Verdict

Steelriver has sound form claims, but he has not won for such a long time that it is hard to side with him. Cases can be made for Milton Road, Queen Of Kalahari and Star Cracker, but GINGER JAM won nicely on his handicap debut and may be able to follow up off 5lb higher.
