Course winner and running well in defeat of late including when 6L sixth in a big field 1m2f handicap at Leicester (good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting runner stepping up in trip and down in grade.

Disappointing in two starts since finishing runner-up over 1m2f at Chelmsford just over a month ago. Races off a mark 13lb lower than when winning at Lingfield (1m2f) in June last year. Has won at this venue in the past.

Handicap mark is falling following some moderate efforts this year. Has won off a much higher mark here in the past and stable can boast a 33% strike-rate (2/6) in recent weeks.

Well held in all five starts to date and probably best watched on first start for this yard having had wind surgery earlier this year.

C&D winner put a below par effort behind him when finishing 4L third over C&D last time out. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and is worth a check in the market.

Struggled in two outings since joining this yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be notable on this occasion.

Maiden after five starts and stepping up in trip having finished well beaten in two handicap starts so far. Others hold stronger claims.

Ten race maiden was beaten just 1¾L when finishing fourth over 1m6f here last month. Drop in trip unlikely to inconvenience too much and is interesting in this event.

Has won here in the past and in good form last month winning twice including over 1m2f in a classified contest at Chelmsford last time out.. Top jockey up racing off a mark 3lb higher than for his latest handicap success.

Beaten 16L when sixth in a 1m4f handicap at Kempton at the end of November. Has won over C&D in the past but probably best watched on seasonal debut.

Betting

Forecast

Lady Of Authority (2/1), Ember's Glow (9/2), Pike Corner Cross (5/1), Qayed (9/1), Muraaqeb (12/1), Cat Royale (12/1), Sellingallthetime (16/1), Attain (20/1), Faraway Fields (28/1), Jack Of Diamonds (40/1), Kay Sera (40/1), Just Another Idea (66/1)

Verdict

MURAAQEB has been in good form of late and he can take the concluding 1m4f handicap. The selection was a winner last time out and he can see off Lady Of Authority who has been running well in defeat in recent outings. Third place can go to top weight Pike Corner Cross who is dropping in grade.
