79-9OR: 62CD
9/2

Best when leading, and been kept busy this year, winning at Lingfield (6f) in March. Several other creditable efforts in recent weeks, but unable to get near the front and ran poorly there last time.

Has a good strike-rate for one of his ability, and back to winning ways at Kempton (7f) in February. Ran at least as well when runner-up there last time, and merits consideration once again.

Now 3lb higher than when winning over C&D in September for David Brown. Has matched that form on several occasions for current yard, and easy to forgive latest run on Fibresand debut.

11/1

On a losing run dating back to 2016, and while he's now 24lb lower than his last winning mark, he ended last season out of sorts. Return to 7f could help on return, but only of interest if attracting support.

Three wins last year included one over 1m here. Third at Wolverhampton in January, but below that form twice since, running badly at Kempton last time.

Now 2lb lower than when winning over C&D in July, and arguably running into form in three runs since a break in the autumn. Still needs to step up, but too well treated to ignore completely.

Second over 6f here in February, but has lost her form subsequently. Usual tongue tie swapped for blinkers now, and not easy to recommend.

C&D winner who was runner-up here in June 2017, and is now 10lb lower. Not seen since running poorly last January, however, and entitled to be rusty after a lengthy absence.

Good front-running third over C&D on her penultimate outing, but failed to back that up at Lingfield last time, and high draw makes life tough here.

Second over 5f at Wolverhampton in February, but has run poorly on both starts since. Handicapper dropping him rapidly in the weights, but needs to halt the slide to take advantage.

58-7OR: 45

Unfancied when runner-up in a low-grade C&D handicap in February, but well held since then, and balance of his form makes him hard to fancy.

48-7OR: 45
9/1

Below form over C&D last time, but twice runner-up in AW handicaps this year from similar mark under this rider. Yet to win, but fairly drawn, and capable of getting involved at a price.

Betting

Forecast

Viola Park (4/1), The King's Steed (9/2), Tavener (9/2), Hic Bibi (5/1), Canimar (9/1), Mezmaar (10/1), Naralsaif (10/1), Kingsley Klarion (11/1), Caledonian Gold (14/1), I'm British (16/1), Holy Tiber (20/1), Mr Gent (20/1), Percy Toplis (25/1), Middlescence (25/1), Out Of The Ashes (25/1)

Verdict

Best to concentrate on those at the top of the handicap in this weak affair, with front-runner Tavener and C&D winner Hic Bibi both more than capable of bouncing back from explainable poor runs, the former unable to get near the front last time, and the latter trying Fibresand for the first time. One who needs no excuses, however, is the reliable VIOLA PARK, who might have been on a hat-trick granted better luck, and is sure to go close again.
