79-7OR: 65D
7/2

Losing sequence is now out to 22 but he was a touch unfortunate over 7f here last month. Suited by this drop in distance and while he remains hard to win with, he could go close again for an in-form yard.

Nine-time winner was successful three times last summer and now back on last winning mark. Suited by these conditions on season reappearance but concern that he has tended to need the run in the past.

Landed two sprint handicaps for Ed Dunlop in 2017 but patchy form in five outings for Robert Cowell this year. Moved stables for 10,000 gns since but remains with questions to answer.

Nine-race maiden showed promise in two of first three starts for current stable since leaving Simon Crisford but he's struggled to make an impression since. Down in grade but overall profile remains inconsistent.

11/4

Just the one win from 17 starts coming in an AW maiden but has rediscovered his spark since joining this first season trainer with two seconds in a row. Up 3lb and maybe a return to 5f might be worth a try but likely to go close in a weak contest.

Son of Orientor improved on debut fourth when third over 7f at Wolverhampton despite meeting traffic issues 2f out. Disappointing next time at Newcastle but a return to his previous form would see him competitive on turf and handicap debut.

Twice a winner at Catterick back in 2017 and now on a 3lb lower mark. Not far off over 7f here last time but overall remains inconsistent and may find fast ground over this trip against him.

18/1

Back on same winning mark of Carlisle success last August but while he won on fast ground in his early days, he much prefers to get his toe in the ground. Should be fitter for two runs back so can't be dismissed.

Some consistent efforts last year failed to yield a win and looked in need of the run over 7f here on her return last month. Remains hard to win with but dropped 2lb and suited by this trip. Should be fitter and place possibilities.

Left Ireland at the end of 2017 but yet to win for current stable, often refusing to settle. Now down a further 2lb, dropped in class and steps back up in trip. Potentially well handicapped but remains frustrating.

Continues to race to a consistent level for this yard and was unlucky when narrowly failing to get up at Brighton latest. Up 2lb but remains unexposed on a quick surface and has the speed to be involved again.

Betting

Forecast

Scuzeme (11/4), Atletico (7/2), Chickenfortea (6/1), Holdenhurst (7/1), Fard (10/1), Kodicat (11/1), Patrick (11/1), Orient Express (14/1), Peachey Carnehan (16/1), Cosmic Chatter (18/1), Extrasolar (20/1), Global Exceed (25/1)

Verdict

Atletico isn't one to get carried away with for win purposes but in a division lacking any depth he shouldn't be far away. The speedy Holdenhurst went close on fast ground last time and can make a bold bid while Orient Express wouldn't need much improvement to make an instant impact on handicap debut. SCUZEME can gain an overdue win having bounced back to life for his new trainer.
