Rounded off his turf campaign with a win over this trip at Redcar last October and was far from disgraced on his first attempt over a mile and half at Wolverhampton shortly afterwards. Still on the upgrade and very possible there's more to come.

Made good strides last season; drops in trip after a solid run in the November Handicap when last seen; had wind surgery since but sound claims if able to repeat his previous effort when second in the Cambridgeshire consolation race at Newmarket.

Yet to win beyond a mile but has to be better than he showed when pulled up at Pontefract last week. That was his first run after wind surgery; stable also has Everything For You here, so the betting can guide.

Won three times over a mile but likes more cut in the ground than he's likely to encounter here; brushed aside in the Doncaster mile (Listed) on his reappearance and will at least appreciate the ease in grade.

Back on the same mark as when he won this race last year, which was his third C&D success; had a similar preparation this time around and likely to make a bold bid. A strong pace will suit but firm ground would scupper his chances a tad.

Yard won the 2015 renewal of this race but this fellow has yet to shine since joining its ranks and he comes here with a fair bit to prove. Been off since October and hard to recommend on previous efforts when returning after a break.

Won over an extended 1m2f at York last June but form took a nosedive afterwards; better effort last time out but generally been too inconsistent to follow with any real confidence.

Set to race from 5lb above his last winning mark but did look harshly treated after he climbed the handicap to a mark of 95 after finishing second in a valuable handicap at Newbury last May; can still go close if freshened up by his winter break.

Back on a winning mark and has won after a break before now; needs to better the form he showed at the back-end of last season and encouraging that he's gone well over C&D in the past. Possibly good value to make the frame.

Won over 6f here on her racecourse debut but has subsequently gone close over C&D as she's progressed. On a reasonably competitive mark but this does look a stiff test for the mare judging by her most recent efforts.

Betting

Forecast

Epaulement (15/8), Society Red (13/2), Mutamaded (7/1), Everything For You (8/1), Poet's Prince (17/2), Anythingtoday (10/1), Appointed (11/1), Ayutthaya (14/1), Mooltazem (20/1), King's Pavilion (20/1), Scottish Summit (25/1)

Verdict

Most of these look weighted to the limit and suggesting one as being ahead of the assessor would be a minefield; Poet's Prince epitomises the theory as he's never won from a mark this high but has started to receive some respite from the handicapper all the same. He can go close; as can Epaulement, who is open to further progress but has to shoulder top weight. Therefore, preference is given to EVERYTHING FOR YOU in the hope that he can recapture his best now he's been under the knife for wind surgery. Mutamaded won this last year and is also feared.
  1. Everything For You
  2. Poet's Prince
  3. Epaulement
