49-7OR: 65BF
5/4

Back from a winter break with his best effort to date when finishing runner-up on handicap debut at Lingfield (7f, standard) just under three-weeks ago; dropped in trip and switched to Tapeta; player.

Generally a solid performer at Newcastle, and just 1lb higher than when dead-heating with Muatadel over C&D in February; below-par at Lingfield latest; entirely possible that he's beginning to feel the effects of a long winter campaign.

Strongest at Wolverhampton (7f) but also reasonably effective at this track; 2lb higher than when beating De Little Engine by a short-head on his penultimate start; first racecourse appearance over 6f since May 2018.

9/1

Difficult to win with (1-26); has tumbled down the weights over the course of the past 12 months (22lb); possible that he'll find his level in Class 6 races, albeit difficult to be overly confident over this 6f trip off a three-month absence.

7/2

Has rediscovered a spark since joining first season trainer Phil Makin; overcame a tardy start, yet was never getting to the all the way winner Lucky Beggar over 6f at Thirsk (good to firm) latest; well-weighted; obvious chance.

6f turf winner (Redcar and Thirsk); back from a six-month absence with a couple of 5f spins on the AW in recent weeks; never involved, kept on late for pressure when finishing sixth of nine to Gowanbuster.

Both of her wins have come at Newcastle (5f-6f), and she was beaten just a neck by Archimedes off a similar mark in mid-January (5f); not so sharp in her last three outings; visor applied.

Relatively progressive in this kind of company for Galashiels trainer Katie Scott until turning in a couple of modest performances of late; made all when beating Steelriver by a neck over C&D in February; 2lb higher.

Southwell regular (5f-6f) who has more than paid his way during the winter months (a four-time winner); now rated 10lb higher than when beating Spirit Power by a comfortable 1½L over 5f here in January.

Nine-race maiden; formerly with William Haggas (sold for 30,000gns in October 2017); generally poor since joining Martin Todhunter - has fallen 17lb in the handicap; difficult to ascertain what is her optimum trip.

Six-race maiden; regressive for former trainer Ralph Beckett and moved on for a mere £2,800 in January 2019; Tapeta/stable debut.

Has tumbled down the weights since the summer of 2017 when most productive at Catterick (6f); handles the majority of AW surfaces (both wins at Southwell); never in the hunt at Thirsk latest (6f); simply not the force of old?

Not abundantly talented but scarcely runs a bad race at Newcastle (6f-7f); 2lb lower than when finishing 2½L fourth to Porrima over 7f here in January; goes reasonably well for Ben Robinson; ought to make the frame.

78-9OR: 53CD

Breakthrough AW win over C&D in December (idled when just fending off Lucky Lodge); off since and returns from a 3lb higher mark with James Sullivan perhaps surprisingly taking the mount aboard stablemate Meshardal.

Betting

Forecast

Rewaayat (5/4), Scuzeme (7/2), Kentuckyconnection (9/1), Kroy (11/1), Gorgeous General (12/1), Duke Cosimo (12/1), Cuppacoco (14/1), Meshardal (22/1), Grey Destiny (22/1), Tadaany (22/1), Rockley Point (33/1), Pretty Passe (33/1), Rantan (33/1), Poyle George Two (100/1)

Verdict

Phil Makin didn't take too long before making a positive impression in the training ranks, and the well-weighted SCUZEME can add another winner to his tally. He appears to have rediscovered his spark since joining this first season trainer (formerly with David Barron), overcoming a tardy start and making good late progress to vainly chase home Lucky Beggar at Thirsk 16-days ago. With a proven ability on the AW (a course winner in 2017) he's strongly fancied to make his mark in this company. The lightly-raced Rewaayat is an obvious danger, whilst the course specialist Kroy can make the frame.
