7/4

Multiple winner in France but well held in both starts since returning this season. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be notable.

Victorious in a 1m1f novice race at Ayr (good) in June last year. Decent efforts in both handicap starts last summer and worth a check in the market on seasonal debut having been gelded and had wind surgery since his latest outing.

Placed twice in novice and maiden company earlier this year including when 4L third over 7f at Newcastle last month. Step up in trip should suit having finished well held on handicap debut at Newcastle (6f) last time out.

Betting

Forecast

Markazi (7/4), Kripke (15/8), Universal Gleam (7/2), Scots Sonnet (7/2), Windsor Cross (5/1), Brilliant Vanguard (8/1), Carbon Dating (10/1), Set In Stone (14/1)

Verdict

SCOTS SONNET looks likely to appreciate this step back up in trip and receiving weight from all of his rivals he can register a first victory in this competitive handicap. Kripke, a winner last time out remains open to improvement and he can take second place ahead of Universal Gleam who is making his seasonal debut.
