Well supported when justifying favouritism in a Class 7 handicap at Chelmsford (5f) in February; placed off this mark next time; should handle this extra yardage on pedigree.

Veteran of 131 races; back to winning ways over C&D in late January when beating Dodgy Bob by a nose; remains feasibly treated but likely to find one or two that fraction stronger.

Fairly consistent in recent months, but that needs quantifying with the fact that he's not won anywhere since September 2017 (7f); finished 1¼L third to Tavener at Lingfield (6f) 12-days ago.

Finished a remote second to Billyfairplay at Dundalk (6f) in December, and hasn't necessarily shown any improvement since; trainer tends to do well with his runners in England; 10lb higher than when a Class 7 Chelmsford scorer (December 2017).

Lightly-raced (0-5); took a very small step forward on his second start for Roy Brotherton at Southwell (5f) in January when finishing 5L fourth of ten to Warrior's Valley.

Notched a fourth AW win when scooting clear for today's rider Megan Nicholls at Kempton (6f) in February; 5lb higher in the weights, but commonly runs well at this track; should figure prominently in the mix.

Just 1-22 on the AW (C&D scorer off this mark in October 2017); finished a staying on fourth to Seaforth, beaten 2½L over 7f here in early March; place shout at best.

14-race maiden (0-7 on the AW); possible that the initial positive impact of blinkers is beginning to wear off; 2lb higher than when beaten ¾L by Billyfairplay over C&D in October; back from a 115-day absence.

Infrequent winner (1-21 on the AW); caught close home when beaten ½L by Swiss Cross over 6f at Kempton in October; scarcely seen in competitive action since; possible that she's being prepared for the upcoming turf campaign.

16-race AW maiden with agonising form figures of 3,2,2,3,3,2 since early 2019; went closest when beaten a nose by today's rival Indian Affair over C&D in late January; deserves to find a race, albeit not necessarily guaranteed to do so.

Has generally proved disappointing since September 2018, but did show a little more sparkle (as the race progressed) when fitted with a first-time visor over 5f at Lingfield in January; this extra furlong an obvious plus, the wide draw much less so.

Well backed and won for the first-time on the AW on his 17th start in a 6f Classified Stakes at Newcastle in February; probably still capable off this revised mark if breaking from the stalls in a more orderly fashion; not dismissed.

Betting

Forecast

Mercury (11/4), Daring Guest (10/3), Dodgy Bob (5/1), Viking Way (8/1), Atyaaf (17/2), Krazy Paving (11/1), Indian Affair (16/1), King Of Rooks (16/1), Thorntoun Lady (20/1), Picks Pinta (22/1), Filbert Street (28/1), Compton Abbey (33/1), Wild Flower (50/1)

Verdict

Megan Nicholls was aboard the Olly Murphy-trained KRAZY PAVING when that 7yo gelding returned to peak form at Kempton in February, scooting clear of the runner-up Fantasy Justifier. In what is a typically ordinary Monday Class 6 6f Wolverhampton handicap, the reunited duo make most appeal. Others in with a shout include the often tardy starter Picks Pinta, the frustrating yet genuine Dodgy Bob, and the very difficult to win with Viking Way.
