Looks a progressive sort for the grade having been suited by the longest trip he's tried last time an extended 1m1f. Only raised 3lb and won with a bit in hand so it would be a surprise if he can't cope with that rise; leading player.

Lightly-raced sort who has now returned to his original yard via Mohamed Moubarak (ran three times for him, including handicap debut). Should strip fitter for his last run (first for 3 months) but still looks on a stiff enough mark.

Improved on his first handicap start (wore first-time blinkers; retained here) under today's rider over slightly shorter trip at Wolverhampton. Still looked a little inexperienced but finished off well; may do better still off same mark.

Despite looking green and inexperienced he showed ability on his debut but never really went on from that point as a juvenile in two subsequent starts; all runs over 6f. Could be suited by further; jockey booking catches the eye after a break.

The only C&D winner in the field showing improved form to get off the mark after a break in a much lower grade. Didn't have the easiest/clearest of passages on that occasion; ran well under a penalty at Kempton; not out of this.

Poor maiden who has failed to go forward in handicaps finishing well held in midfield at Kempton in a basement grade handicap last time. Wears cheekpieces again but they appear to have made little difference to her performance; others preferred.

Improved on her handicap debut off a lowly mark over 1m (nearest finish) but came nowhere near that form last time over the same trip on Fibresand. Dropped 2lb from her initial mark but the wide draw is discouraging; others appeal more.

Back from a break having shown very little on his handicap debut last September over 1m; attempted to make all. Dropped a further 2lb on his return and upped in trip but would need to have improved to take a hand.

Showed very little on his handicap debut at Newcastle last month and now dropped 3lb with the visor now swapped for a first-time tongue-tie and cheekpieces. Up significantly in trip but makes very little appeal.

0-10 so far with six handicap defeats to her name and looking exposed although showed a glimmer of hope last time over an extended 1m; not well placed. Up in trip and grade again, place chance if she can repeat her last run.

Little sign of ability so far in six career starts having shown nothing in her two starts for this yard having previously been with Bryan Smart. Stepped up 3f in trip now but not really one to be interested in even in this lowly grade.

Forecast

Precision Prince (15/8), Chakrii (3/1), Archdeacon (5/1), Pot Luck (7/1), Lady Wolf (10/1), Willkommen (10/1), Margaret J (12/1), Maared (20/1), Wontgetfooledagen (33/1), Mendeleev (33/1), Silk Island (33/1), Mr Fox (33/1), Jasmine B (50/1)

Verdict

There don’t appear to be many progressive types in this bar PRECISION PRINCE who won well last time out and still looked to have something in hand of the assessor. Chakrii has already proved himself over C&D with a win and he showed last time that he was capable of winning again having run well under his penalty at Kempton. Pot Luck has work to do with the Precision Prince on their Wolverhampton running and it may be the likes of Archdeacon (Adam Kirby an eye-catching booking) despite the wide draw and Willkommen who provide more danger.
