9/2

Winner of two of his 17 starts at the track, the last coming in March 2016. Has struggled a little since joining current connections in January but bounced back to form when second of 12 over C&D earlier this month. Should go well again.

Winner of three of his 18 starts over C&D but currently races off a 17lb lower mark than his last win achieved in June 2017. Finished second of seven beaten 1¾L over 2m earlier this month and this drop in trip not sure to suit.

Put a number of disappointing efforts behind him when finishing fifth of 13 beaten 3L here over 1m2½f earlier this month. Likely more to come in first time blinkers.

Well held in a number of maiden hurdle starts since December but put that all behind him when finishing second of 13 beaten 6L over C&D last month. Likely to improve again in this contest.

Has hit the frame on both starts over C&D and was sent off the 2/1f when finishing third of 13 beaten 9L behind Drakensberg last month. Likelable type who should be in the mix.

Regular visitor here having his seventh start here this year. Winner of three of his 33 starts over C&D the Shamardal gelding has failed to hit the frame here in 11 starts over the last 12 months. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Has struggle in three starts here since January and first time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Finished third of nine over 1m here in February 2018 beaten 1½L. Not seen since finishing 14L adrift of the winner of a 1m4f handicap here in November and possibly best watched on return to action.

Yet to win in nine starts, though did shape with some promise in a couple of starts when last seen towards the end of the year over 1m2½f. No surprise to see the filly improve stepping up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Sleepy Head (5/2), Lusis Naturea (9/2), Sharjah (5/1), Phebes Dream (6/1), Yamato (7/1), Magic Sea (15/2), Important Message (9/1), Wedding Photo (12/1), Shake The Bucket (16/1), Miss Louise (20/1), Caronda (20/1), Poitin (25/1), Don Pedro (25/1)

Verdict

Wide open contest where a chance is taken with the Mick Halford-trained YAMATO who was running well in defeat over C&D at the turn of the year and has the assistance of Ronan Whelan back on board. The yard are 11 from 50 here in March over the last three years and the Big Bad Bob gelding can out run his odds. Course winner and beaten favourite last time out, Sleepy Head, Lusis Naturea and Phebes Dream can battle it out for the places.
