79-11OR: 55CD
4/1

Consistent as a rule, and has won over C&D. Back to winning ways in a handicap at Southwell for this rider, and new rules means he's hit by a 4lb penalty, which makes him a contender again.

Won her maiden here in 2016, but has regressed markedly, and makes no appeal on recent form.

Best efforts over C&D including a win in February off 4lb lower, and not disgraced next time. Ran moderately at Wolverhampton on latest start, but claims back at favoured venue.

Back to last winning mark, and 16lb lower than when scoring over C&D in October 2016. Less promise of late, however, and needs to put two poor 2019 runs behind him.

20/1

Now a massive 24lb lower in the weights than for his last win, but that came in 2016, and he has been on the slide for the past couple of years. Needs to buck that trend to avail of handicapper's generosity.

79-1OR: 49CD
7/1

Has won over C&D off a mark of 74, but out of form at present and on a losing run of 27 races. Jockey booking takes the eye, but he's not one for maximum faith despite his tempting mark.

Won a weak race all out at Lingfield on penultimate outing, but easy to back and failed to beat a rival over C&D last time. Opposable on balance.

Recent record is a little patchy, but back to form when front-running second of 10 to Brockey Rise in a 5f handicap at Wolverhampton last time. On a good mark if he can back that up, and well drawn to do so.

68-12OR: 45

Has plenty of respectable form to his name in recent times, but on a long losing run, and mark has fallen as far as it can. Not one for the mortgage by any means.

Veteran who ran well when second over C&D in February, but struggles to get his head in front these days, and both efforts since have been disappointing.

Lost her way completely last year, although has returned to be reasonably competitive in a pair of low-grade handicaps. Needs to do better to figure here, though.

Betting

Forecast

Admiral Rooke (11/4), Atyaaf (4/1), Red Stripes (4/1), Zipedeedodah (7/1), Waneen (7/1), Kyllukey (12/1), Hurricane Alert (12/1), Dubai Elegance (20/1), Shackled N Drawn (20/1), Camino (25/1), Roy's Legacy (33/1), Ise Lodge Babe (33/1)

Verdict

RED STRIPES would normally look vulnerable under a penalty, but new rules means he only has an extra 4lb to carry for last week's Southwell success, and he may be able to take advantage. Admiral Rooke is an obvious threat having narrowly failed to make all last time, with Atyaaf best of the remainder in a race where few appeal.
