7/2

Won twice last year, and back to form when 2½L third of 16 to Thornaby Nash at Thirsk last time after a couple of pipe-openers. Should be competitive off further-reduced mark, and shortlisted.

Won twice at Hamilton last season, and ran well after a break when third of 11 to Colour Contrast in a C&D handicap 11 days ago. Can build on that, and claims if doing so despite wide draw.

Placed in better class at Newcastle on his last two starts, and a palpably better performer on AW surfaces. Mark reflects that, though, and fairly treated on balance of his turf form.

Improved on a poor return when fifth of 16 to Thornaby Nash at Thirsk last time, and while he was behind Christmas Night there, he caught the eye from a poor position, and is one to note.

Placed three times on AW this year for Kevin Frost, but has run badly on his last two outings, and debatable whether a switch of yards will see him revived here.

Finally off the mark on 31st start, winning a C&D handicap in refitted blinkers, and all out having looked to have plenty in hand. Capable of following up, but isn't one to trust implicitly all of a sudden.

All six career wins have come on Polytrack, including back-to-back successes this spring, but he's not quite the same force on turf, and he had no excuses when in the ruck at Wetherby last time.

Still seeking his first win, and more bad runs than creditable ones for his current yard. No sign of a turnaround last time, and easy to oppose until showing more.

Not the most reliable type but capable on his day as he proved last month when getting the race run to suit at Chelmsford (6f). Two solid efforts in defeat since, and also won over C&D last year, so can't be taken lightly despite his veteran status.

Won at Newcastle over 7f in 2017, and has run some fair races in defeat there since, but rarely tried on turf these days, and tailed off on his last attempt.

Running well at a lowly level on Tapeta at Newcastle of late, but quite a while since she showed similar form on turf, for all she was once fully effective on this surface. opposable on balance.

Has merely hinted at ability in his short career to date, and soundly beaten on handicap debut at Newcastle in December. Tried in cheekpieces now, but makes no appeal on form.

Betting

Forecast

Christmas Night (7/2), Colour Contrast (9/2), Donnelly's Rainbow (5/1), Chaplin Bay (6/1), Twiggy (15/2), Strategic (10/1), Mr Potter (20/1), Crazy Tornado (22/1), Tellovoi (25/1), Black Hambleton (25/1), Shamlan (33/1), Morley Gunner (50/1)

Verdict

A tricky race to assess, but it may be worth chancing DONNELLY'S RAINBOW after he caught the eye behind Thornaby Nash at Thirsk recently. Christmas Night ran well in the same race, and is an obvious danger, appealing more than recent C&D winner Colour Contrast, who had everything drop right last time, and is not sure to be in the same mood, accepting that his new mark is perfectly fair in form terms.
