Has a pleasing overall strike-rate (10-35) and goes best with some cut underfoot; beaten a short-head and a nose off this mark at Nottingham (5f, soft) in November 2018; disappointing (keen) at Wetherby last week.

13lb lower than when finishing ¾L second to Machree at Ripon (5f, good) in September 2018; runner up over C&D on seasonal reappearance in 2017; must bounce back to form in order to be involved, but don't discount.

Runner up off an equivalent mark at Wolverhampton (5f) when beaten 1L by A Sure Welcome; produced a similar effort back there last week; enters the reckoning from a low draw at a track where he has ran well in the past (August 2018).

Left Dermot Weld for 18,000gns in July 2018; has had wind surgery since; well beaten on all four AW starts for Mick Easterby; handled cut in Ireland and plunging down the weights, so don't be surprised if he does fare better on this occasion.

Hasn't seen masses of racing in recent times, but there's an argument that he's reasonably well handicapped off this mark on peak turf form; blew any chance at the start on seasonal reappearance at Windsor (dwelt).

Group 3 winning juvenile for Hugo Palmer; nowhere near that level nowadays but he does appreciate cut in the ground, and his 6f Thirsk reappearance fifth of 19 to Pennsyvania Dutch is working out very well; considered.

Pontefract specialist; 1lb lower than when beating Inexes by a neck in late 2018 (6f, soft); beaten (fifth) by Johnny Cavagin on his penultimate start; this is an easier option than the Class 4 handicap that he contested latest; moderately drawn.

Very difficult to win with (1-48), but has the required ability; sneaking back up the weights for some solid efforts - beaten a head at Nottingham (5f) latest; goes particularly well at Beverley (1L runner up in this race in 2018); every chance.

Hit a rich vein of form on the AW during the winter winning three on the bounce for Michael Wigham around the turn of the year (all over 6f at Lingfield); steadily working back to form for Tracy Waggott.

Capable of making his presence felt from an official rating of 63, but equally also has the look and feel of a nearly horse (always finds a few rivals stronger); slow start when a beaten 11/4f (third) at Pontefract latest; well drawn.

Betting

Forecast

Qaaraat (6/1), Afandem (6/1), Luzum (7/1), Jan Van Hoof (7/1), Foxtrot Knight (8/1), Show Palace (17/2), Johnny Cavagin (11/1), Tan (11/1), Ladweb (12/1), Deeds Not Words (12/1), Gamesome (12/1), Crystal Deauville (12/1), Rolladice (20/1), East Street Revue (25/1), Round The Island (25/1), Mr Wagyu (25/1), Adiator (66/1)

Verdict

With a field of 17 runners spread across the full width of the Westwood, this is quite frankly an almost impossible sprint to solve. Therefore, well take three against the field and hope to hit the jackpot. Gamesome continues in solid form, and although incredibly difficult to win with (possibly missed his chance at Nottingham) he merits plenty of respect at a track he seems to appreciate. However, better drawn in stall nine and four respectively are Afandem and QAARAAT with the Anthony Brittain-trained runner the selection from a mark which is 3lb lower than when beaten half-a-length over C&D (good to firm) in August 2018.
