Off the mark in an AW handicap in March and found only one too strong since off 8lb higher mark at Redcar (1m, good). Retains scope for better.

Kyllachy colt, back-to-back wins (6f/7f) before finishing well down the field behind Happy Power at Doncaster on final run of last season. Tame reappearance at same track and bit to prove now.

Camelot gelding, scored over 7f (good to soft) in Newbury novice in the autumn on second start and found only one too good under 7lb penalty at Windsor (1m, soft) next time. Returns from a break and plenty potential.

Fended off subsequent winner Caballero when opening his account over extended 7f here on final start last term. Easy to back 16-1 chance on reappearance at Redcar (1m, good) recently; may be sharper here.

Lethal Force colt, shaped nicely in three AW starts since January, culminating in 1m Lingfield novice success in February. Turf bow, can improve again.

Hamilton maiden winner over 6f (good to firm) last summer. Two decent efforts on the AW since returning from layoff suggest he can compete from this mark having strengthened up as a three-year-old.

Betting

Forecast

Reggae Runner (11/4), Politicise (11/4), On The Line (3/1), Big Baby Bull (11/2), Coolagh Forest (13/2), Howzer Black (9/1), Amadeus Grey (14/1), Lincoln Park (16/1)

Verdict

Politicise just failed to concede a penalty when last spotted in a Windsor novice and is much-respected for the in-form William Haggas yard now going handicapping but preference is for REGGAE RUNNER. He was off the mark at the third time of asking a Lingfield AW novice in February and should have plenty more to come in handicaps as the summer approaches. He can land this for last year's winning trainer. On The Line and Howzer Black are other potential improvers worth paying attention to in the market.
