No doubts about him acting around here as he's a nine times course winner although his last win came on turf 14 starts ago. However, his latest start here was totally underwhelming and he's fared no better in two turf starts since.

6/1

Dual course winner (once over C&D) when with Roger Varian back in 2016 but hasn't won since then. Shown glimpses of his old form for this yard (all here) whilst sliding down the weights; not disgraced last time, visor now goes on first-time.

From a yard in top-class form he's shown he acts well here (12314); the C&D win being his best form here although that came in a slightly lower grade. Last two outings have been below-par (underperformed here last time); chance he'll bounce back.

Shaped well on his two visits here (both over 1m4f) unlucky to bump into well-treated/progressive rivals on each of his starts. Below form last time at Lingfield (did suffer interference); may well be happier back here and up 2f in trip.

Bumper winner on debut who has now been switched to the Flat and makes her handicap debut having run over trips that look on the short side to gain a mark. Will appreciate this test if she handles the surface (yard have a decent record here).

16/1

Dual course winner in the dim and distant past who was well backed on his stable debut last time when running over 2m here. Turned in a well below-par effort though racing freely and making little impression; hopes now pinned on a first-time visor.

8/1

Makes his Fibresand debut (sire 0-18 on the surface) with only win to his name from 23 starts (hardly a compelling record). Given an over positive ride last time (2m) but yet to prove he stays this trip; not one for the shortlist.

Returns to the Flat having proved rather frustrating over hurdles (0-7); equally hasn't proved successful in this sphere since mid-2016. Stays this trip with his one previous start here coming on his second career run; well handicapped on best form.

Off the mark in what was a weak race at Wolverhampton upped to 2m for the first time. Failed to repeat or even get near that form since in a couple of AW starts; comes here on a recovery mission (first taste of Fibresand).

80/1

Course win came back in the mists of time (2013) and he's far from capable of that sort of form now as he approaches the veteran stage for the Flat. Not shown anything in his latest runs here in amateur riders races; can only be watched.

Still a maiden with her recent form even for her new yard looking as though she is still some way from recording her first win. Never nearer over 2m at Lingfield last time she now makes her Fibresand debut; limited appeal.

Fibresand debut having fared poorly so far in her two runs for this stable; looks very much on the downgrade. Not certain to stay this trip; hard to construct a cogent case for her on the current evidence.

Interesting sort despite the form figures (well backed before being withdrawn prior to stable debut over 1m here. Still a maiden and a leap of faith required to back him here especially up in trip; heed a market move though.

50/1

Maiden handicapper whose three runs on Fibresand so far have not hinted he's about to take off on this surface. Last two runs have come for this yard after a break; eyeshields now on for first time, but holds little interest for backers.

Betting

Forecast

Seasearch (11/4), Harbour Quay (11/4), High Command (6/1), Magic Sea (8/1), Greenview Paradise (17/2), Ripplet (9/1), Fern Owl (16/1), Loose Chippings (25/1), Dew Pond (25/1), Sweetest Smile (25/1), Luv U Whatever (33/1), Unonothinjonsnow (50/1), Bertie Moon (80/1), Melanna (100/1)

Verdict

There are a few that may be bubbling under in the modest staying handicap with HARBOUR QUAY the suggestion as he steps back on to the Fibresand that looks to suit him well having run two sound races here and there are no progressive types lurking this time to beat him up. Seasearch has also shown he can operate here although he will need to bounce back from a poor run here last time. Worth watching in the market are Ripplet and Loose Chippings both of whom have the potential to attract attention while High Command enters the equation as he drops down the weights with the new headgear going on.
