Hugh class sprint handicapper in the past but finished last season on a low and didn't show much on recent comeback. Rare run at the minimum trip these days and meets some rivals at the top of their game.

His two best efforts in his career have been when making all on his only two visits to this venue in the last 12 months. Well drawn to dominate again and could take some pegging back if in the same form.

Rare below par effort at the minimum trip on latest but prior win at Chelmsford showed the fire is still there and can't be completely ruled out.

Not quite at his best in two runs in Dubai this winter but last run in this country when scoring at Beverley in September was a career best and does have a good record from not many tries on the AW.

Back to best of late and 6f win here last time showed his versatility regarding trip. Should have race run to suit and 3lb rise is perfectly fair.

Gave it a good go from the front on latest but not quite good enough to hold on. This is tougher and long losing run continues to build up.

His fourth over C&D in December behind a couple of these was an eye catching effort and a repeat would certainly put him in the mix. Not as good since however and something to prove at present.

This C&D brings out the best in him. Has often been unlucky in his races and will need everything to drop right but a player if he gets the breaks.

Betting

Forecast

Shamshon (3/1), Doctor Sardonicus (3/1), Orvar (7/2), Lancelot Du Lac (15/2), Boom The Groom (8/1), Mokaatil (17/2), Foxy Forever (14/1), Tropics (20/1)

Verdict

A strong sprint and a confident vote goes to DOCTOR SARDONICUS who has looked better than a handicapper on his last two visits here and is well drawn to attack. Shamshon is in fine heart and heads the list of dangers with Foxy Forever among then if he gets the breaks.
  1. Doctor Sardonicus
  2. Shamshon
  3. Foxy Forever
