109-10OR: 82D
8/1

Veteran who was a talented sprinter on his day and won a big York Handicap from an Official Rating of 103. Built on a couple of solid runs for a good second at Chester recently and primed to go well. Would prefer an easier surface.

Winner of six races, but has failed to beat a rival on last two starts, latterly on seasonal reappearance at Musselburgh in a first-time tongue tie which is removed. Needs to have benefited from a recent wind operation.

4/1

Progressed well last term, with wins at Haydock and Nottingham, and has shaped well after a break when failing by just a neck at Southwell and then third over this C&D. Should be involved again off 1lb lower and quicker conditions ideal.

Was raised 8lb for Musselburgh win last August and struggled after that. Now just 1lb higher than last win and should be fitter following C&D season reappearance. Not ideally drawn but can be competitive.

49-6OR: 78
33/1

Lightly-raced following nine starts with his sole win coming in a lower grade for Owen Burrows last year. Best watched following a poor season and stable debut and questions to answer trying the minimum trip for the first time.

Landed sixth career success when popping up at 33/1 lat Beverley over the stiff 5f. Ran to a similar level when up to 6f and this grade last start and suited by return to the minimum trip. Can be competitive again off 1lb lower.

Quirky sort who isn't the most reliable but is capable on his day. Showed little in three runs for Stef Keniry and when a well beaten last on new stable debut. Remains hard to make a case for.

10/1

Just three wins from 33 starts but now but now 19lb below the last of them back in 2017. Has raced with promise on last two starts for new stable which remains in very good form. Better suited by 6f but can go well again.

Improved this season for new stable after leaving Kevin Prendergast in Ireland for just £4,000. Won on stable debut and ran to a similar level in two handicaps since. Open to progress although this represents tougher company.

Seeeking a 10th career victory and 2lb below his last success. Shaped better following two runs back when fifth over this C&D and suited by these quicker conditions. Should be spot on now and could run a big race.

Now 3lb below last win and meets quicker ground for the first time since. Shaped well in two of three runs back and suited by return to the minimum trip. Gets a favourable high draw and can be involved.

Back to winning form on his preferred fibresand surface at the beginning of the month and now up 3lb. Has tended to prove inconsistent and sole turf win came with cut in the ground. Well drawn but others look more reliable.

58-13OR: 71D
10/1

No win since August 2017 and just 2-29 strike rate over career. Had every chance but displayed a high head carriage when runner-up on reappearance. Up in grade and although he could go well, others look more trustworthy for win purposes.

Won the Newbury Super Sprint for Richard Fahey in 2015. Once rated 100, he plummeted in the weights in 2017 but returned from lengthy absence with two solid efforts for new yard. Up 2lb and in grade for stable who has won the last two renewals.

Made a swift change of yard having had just the one run for William Haggas last year. Shaped with promise at Wolverhampton on stable debut but below that at Newcastle. More needed on handicap debut.

Just one win from 19 starts and remains 2lb higher than that success. Has proved hard to predict and failed to build on narrow defeat in two starts since season reappearance. Other look more reliable.

Betting

Forecast

Jabbarockie (4/1), Burmese Blazer (5/1), Duke Of Firenze (8/1), Lathom (8/1), Suwaan (10/1), Tabaahy (10/1), Smokey Lane (10/1), Samovar (12/1), Landing Night (12/1), Bashiba (12/1), Excessable (14/1), Secretinthepark (22/1), Robot Boy (25/1), Mutafarrid (33/1), Alqaab (40/1), Classic Pursuit (66/1), Longroom (80/1)

Verdict

A typically wide-open sprint handicap for this venue with plenty holding solid claims. Lathom remains on a handy mark and could add to his trainer's fine recent record in the race. It's been a while since LANDING NIGHT met these quicker conditions and from a handy draw could be worth following. Along with Bashiba and Jabbarockie he should be fully primed for a big run.
