7/1

Just one win in 15 starts for this yard, which came over 2m at Newcastle in October. Found new mark beyond him on return at Wolverhampton, and still appears a little high in the weights on balance.

Hurdles winner here in March, and improved on previous Flat form when ¾L second of 11 to Elite Icon in a 1¾m handicap here ten days ago. Unexposed as a stayer, and big chance if taking to first-time blinkers.

Won a 2m Catterick handicap in the autumn and followed it with a hurdles success here. Soundly beaten on return at Thirsk late last month, and may still need another spin to reach full fitness on that evidence.

Won just once in his first 22 starts, but improved those stats markedly when winning a 1¾m handicap here 10 days ago from Frame Rate. Could follow up if in the same mood, but he's not one to trust in that regard.

Bred to be useful, but he's been lightly raced, which hints at training issues, and could finish only 10¾L sixth of 11 to Elite Icon here last time, and has work to do on that form.

0-39 in a variety of company, and while he ran one of his better races when plugging on into fourth of 10 at Newcastle (2m) last time, he's still pretty easy to oppose.

Only modest, but found his level in handicaps in recent months, and has hit the frame on his last four starts at Southwell. Equally effective on turf, but 0-22 record tempers confidence.

Placed three times from 23 starts all told, and although she's not been disgraced in recent starts, she is going to need a weak race to get her head in front.

Betting

Forecast

Frame Rate (7/4), Elite Icon (9/2), Tawseef (5/1), Palermo (6/1), Siyahamba (7/1), St Andrews (7/1), Richard Strauss (8/1), Eyreborn (18/1), Rock N'stones (25/1)

Verdict

Elite Icon found for pressure when withholding the challenge of FRAME RATE over slightly shorter here last time, but he's not sure to be so generous now given his patchy record, and Iain Jardine's unexposed handicapper can take his revenge given a second bite at the cherry. Tawseef hasn't been seen on the Flat since 2017, but showed enough over hurdles last time to suggest he's no back number at the age of 11.
