Has won the same 7f handicap at Doncaster's Lincoln meeting for the last two years, on contrasting ground. Followed up last year, so merits maximum respect off top weight.

Been busy over the winter and spring but continues to run well, and gained third win of the year in a C&D handicap last time, scoring readily. Can make another bold bid here.

9/1

Won here a year a year ago, and at least as good as ever when scoring over 7f at Wolverhampton two starts back. Respectable third there last time, and can't be ruled out.

58-11OR: 74D
9/1

Won three times on good or quicker ground last year at 6f/7f, but he's taken time to find his feet this year, and needs to build on latest 3¾L third of 5 to Zig Zag Zyggyat Hamilton last time.

10/1

C&D winner off 1lb lower mark in September, and ran well when third to Kupa River here last time, making running as usual. Now 7lb better off, and decent claims if cheekpieces have a positive effect.

Won twice at up to 1m here last season having fallen in the weights, and has dropped to his last winning mark. Not fired fully in two starts here this year, though, finding less than expected behind Kupa River last time.

Won off 4lb higher here in the autumn, and regained winning ways at Wolverhampton in February. Below form on last two starts, but too well handicapped to ignore.

Betting

Forecast

Kupa River (9/4), Right Action (11/4), Jacob Black (8/1), Gabrial The Tiger (8/1), Logi (9/1), Sureyoutoldme (9/1), How Bizarre (10/1), Lualiwa (20/1)

Verdict

HOW BIZARRE has a fair chance of wresting the early lead here, and he ran well despite being harried for early dominance when third to Kupa River over C&D last time. He can gain revenge is getting a soft lead, although Gabriel The Tiger may have something to say about that. Right Action arrives on the back of a win in competitive company at Doncaster, and also makes the shortlist.
