Enjoyed cut in the ground when scoring over 6f on the July course last summer. Only 2lb higher now and won first time out last season.

Good strike rate of 7-23 for previous trainers Ed Dunlop and Iain Jardine. First run for this yard and is fitted with a tongue tie, but all his wins have been achieved over further.

Unable to get his head in front last season, but finished runner-up four times. LIkes fast ground so underfoot conditions should suit and handicap mark is feasible.

In good form on the AW since the turn of the year, winning handicaps at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton, Good third off this mark at Kempton last time and has claims for last year's winning stable it replicating that form on turf on which he is 0-6.

Signed off last season with a narrow victory in a Doncaster handicap. Up 3lb to a mark he has never won off, but should be on the premises if returning in good form.

First run since being gelded and making his seasonal reappearance when close fourth of 17 at Doncaster. Competes off the same mark and positive jockey booking suggests a bold bid is expected.

Not far behind Green Power when sixth at Doncaster on his first start of the season. Down 1lb and should be sharper so he is one to consider.

Plenty of solid form last season, but most of it was achieved over 7f. Has been gelded since running well over this trip at Ascot in October and has been dropped 1lb.

First run since being gelded and seasonal reappearance when seventh in the Doncaster race in which he was behind Green Power and Tommy Taylor. Should be straighter this time and is 1lb lower.

Two wins in eight starts when trained by Jeremy Noseda and now tries her luck for a new trainer. Last victory was achieved in a three-runner race off 9lb lower.

Back-to-back wins at Windsor last summer, but the handicapper retaliated and he was unable to add to those successes. Still looks high enough in the handicap on return to action.

Won a handicap on the July course last year, but was behind Flavius Titus on final start at Ascot. Has run well off this sort of mark and is one to consider.

Stable companion of Alemaratalyoum who ran only twice last season and was well held on his first run this year at Kempton. Needs to show more before becoming a betting proposition.

From the same stable as Desert Doctor, he signed off last season with a good second of 10 at Salisbury. Reappears off 2lb higher mark, but may have improvement in him and is worth checking in the betting.

Betting

Forecast

Green Power (7/1), Flavius Titus (8/1), Summerghand (8/1), Desert Doctor (8/1), Count Otto (9/1), Tommy Taylor (9/1), Buridan (10/1), Kimifive (10/1), Normandy Barriere (11/1), Blackheath (12/1), Ice Lord (16/1), Von Blucher (20/1), Alemaratalyoum (20/1), Burguillos (25/1), Zain Hana (50/1)

Verdict

A wide-open sprint handicap in which several of the runners renew rivalry after their recent clash at Doncaster. Of those, Green Power may come out on top again, but the selection is NORMANDY BARRIERE, who drew a blank last year, but shaped well on a number of occasions and may be able to return to winning ways off a feasible mark. Flavius Titus is a potential improver after being gelded, while top-weight Summerghand won first time out last season and has fair claims along with Blackheath and Count Otto.
