2/1

Debuts for local trainer Karen McLintock after leaving the care of Stan Moore following a fast-finishing fourth at Windsor (5f) in October; 0-8 on the AW but should be capable of going close in a contest like this.

Steady improvement culminated in C&D win last time out in retained first-time cheekpieces. Up 4lb for that but no reason he can't continue to progress so very much a leading contender once more.

Had some fair form for Mark Johnston in sprint maidens back in 2016 but off well over two years before recent sixth of seven here on return. Entitled to have needed that run but how much ability remains up for debate.

Almost two years now since last win and not once placed in the interim. Eighth of 10 latest at Wolverhampton a fairly typical effort these days and hard to fancy again.

Nine-race maiden has one or two pieces of form that would make this mark look very attractive. Recent efforts have been pretty poor though which obviously tempers enthusiasm.

Nine-race maiden; finished a staying on fifth of eight at Wolves on return and again fifth there latest under ultra-aggressive ride. With a little patience she could make the frame here.

Rather enigmatic character but is a five-time C&D winner although his losing run is starting to grow again; currently stands at 21. Good second latest his best effort to date and if backing it up he will go close again.

Course regular (17 runs) who has here twice (once over C&D); putting in some creditable efforts of late over sprint trips here without winning. Third latest followed a second the time before and again in the mix for at least a place.

15-time winner including four C&D successes. Slowing down slightly now but been competitive on the whole. Third of 12 earlier this month showed handicap is now within range and has to enter calculations here.

Nine-race maiden followed first ever placed effort at Southwell with a poor effort there latest. Cheekpieces now tried but risky proposition on the whole.

Her career record so far stands at 0-10 with very little promise shown in three runs since she joined her current yard. Ran poorly over 6f here last time in a first-time hood and the blinkers are the headgear of choice this time.

11-race maiden has beaten just six rivals combined in last four starts, Poor eighth of nine at Lingfield yet another piece of evidence suggesting she may never win a race.

Three starts so far in novice company have not amounted to much. Best of those efforts came over last time and makes handicap debut off a lowly mark. Needs to improve quite a bit but market check probably needed.

Sole victory came back in 2015 and hasn't looked like adding to that tally of late. This is more suitable than the Wolverhampton race last time but needs to take a large step forward.

Betting

Forecast

Everkyllachy (2/1), The Bull (9/2), Star Cracker (6/1), Windforpower (8/1), Angel Eyes (9/1), Novabridge (10/1), Bahango (10/1), Rock Hill (16/1), High Anxiety (25/1), Bluella (25/1), Jean Excels (33/1), Tina Teaspoon (40/1), Men United (66/1), Climax (100/1)

Verdict

THE BULL won for the first time last time out when fitted with first-time cheekpieces and with those remaining he is fancied to follow up in a contest lacking strength in depth. Everkyllachy is undoubtedly competitively handicapped at present and although his AW record isn't inspiring he has shown enough to suggest he can at least be competitive here. Others with realistic claims are Novabridge and Star Cracker.
