1111-12OR: 125CD

A sliding mark would be the reason for siding with him (9lb below his last winning mark) although in truth he's come nowhere near his previous form this year. Failed to fire last time back from a break; makes limited appeal on recent achievements.

1111-4OR: 117D

Inconsistent type who is a capable of some good form as shown by his third at Wetherby in December (well positioned, proved hard to pass). Underlined his profile by running poorly next time; returns from a break, has run well fresh before.

810-11OR: 110D

Fair while since he recorded a win but showed last time out that he still had the ability to do so on his stable debut. Without his usual tongue-tie did well to come from off the pace in a steadily-run race over C&D; up 3lb, leading chance.

810-0OR: 98

Conditions will be different to when he ran third over a shorter trip at Down Royal on his handicap debut last time. Merits plenty of respect on that run (looked as though he would be suited by 3m); has to prove he can handle a quicker surface.

Forecast

Cairnshill (11/10), Pegase Amour (5/2), Tawseef (5/1), Presence Felt (6/1)

Verdict

Two arrive in form to this small field handicap hurdle with the ex-Irish CAIRNSHILL narrowly preferred to the Irish raider Pegase Amour. The former did well to finish second last time out having been a little too far back when the race really got going with his C&D experience standing him in good stead. The latter has the potential to improve but the form of his last contest isn’t really working out and the ground could well be quicker than he likes. Neither Tawseef or Presence Felt are getting any younger and with both having to give weight and age away they can be opposed in this.
