5lb higher than when beating Borodin by 2¾L in the 1m Class 3 Thirsk Summer Cup in August 2018 (good to soft); beaten a neck on his seasonal reappearance in 2018 (1m2f); much respected.

Four-time course winner (7½f-1m½f); without a win in nine starts in 2018 and has left the care of David O'Meara over the winter; feasibly handicapped, albeit advancing quickly in years.

Now rated 9lb lower than when winning for Henry Spiller at Ascot (1m, soft) in September 2017; pulled up in a couple of spins over hurdles in early 2019; back on the Flat for new handler David Elsworth.

Historically goes well at Beverley (6,9,2,1,4,5,4,1); 6lb higher than when keeping on strongly to beat Vigee Le Brun by 4L over C&D (good to soft) in September 2018; should be stronger for his seasonal reappearance but drawn wide in stall 15.

Developed into a Fibresand specialist over the winter (7f-1m) with form figures reading 1,2,1,1,2; 14-race maiden on turf (rated 9lb lower as a result); plenty to prove despite occupying the plum berth in stall 1.

Has fallen 12lb in the weights over the course of the past 12 months or so following some lacklustre efforts; blew the start on seasonal reappearance at Nottingham; should only be of interest to in-running punters if handily placed early.

Sits on his last winning mark (1m Ripon) and has quite possibly had trip excuses (1m2f), but on balance it's difficult to remain positive about his overall career profile; headgear (blinkers) now applied.

Finished close up (beaten just over 1L) when sent off 9/2f on seasonal reappearance at Redcar (1m, good); below that level of form when finishing seventh of eight to today's rival Kylie Rules over C&D since.

Course winner (September 2017); nowhere near his best since returning from a winter break on the AW at Newcastle when beaten a neck by Helovaplan (1m).

Doesn't win very often, but has knocked at the door off this kind of mark over the past 6-9 months or so; won't be inconvenienced by the recent rain after a respectable 3L second to Crownthorpe over C&D (good) last week.

Cost these connections 125,000gns in October 2017 (from Jeremy Noseda); unfortunately missed the whole of the calendar year in 2018; 0-6 in 2019, and not shaping like an obvious future winner.

Runner up over C&D in September 2018 before winning on the AW at Newcastle in the autumn (1m); 4lb better off with today's rival Kylie Rules for a 1½L beating over C&D latest; realistic contender.

Seeks a C&D hat-trick following early season wins on a sound surface (good to firm); 5lb higher than when beating Placebo Effect and International Man latest; is clearly enjoying her life with North Yorkshire trainer Ruth Carr.

Betting

Forecast

Kylie Rules (9/4), Storm Ahead (6/1), Weld Al Emarat (8/1), Placebo Effect (9/1), Leader Writer (10/1), Me Too Nagasaki (11/1), Kharbetation (11/1), International Man (12/1), Mikmak (16/1), Detachment (16/1), Swift Emperor (20/1), Rousayan (20/1), Magic City (20/1), Intense Style (25/1), London Protocol (25/1)

Verdict

There's plenty of recent Beverley form for punters to sink their teeth into with the hat-trick seeking Kylie Rules recommencing battle with her old foe Placebo Effect, and the Tim Easterby-trained Storm Ahead almost certain to be suited by last week's heavy rain following a respectable C&D second to Crownthorpe (good). However, the preferred option in another competitive handicap is his well-drawn stablemate MIKMAK who ran creditably on his seasonal reappearance in 2018 (second), and also proved his worth in a grade above today's contest in Thirsk's Class 3 Summer Cup (good to soft)..
  1. Mikmak
  2. Storm Ahead
  3. Placebo Effect
