Half-brother to 1m-1m2f winner Calm Attitude out of a half-sister to useful winners Papaha (1m) and Old California (1m4f).Runner-up in pair of 6f Newcastle novices last autumn. Shapes as if he'll do better still over 7f now back in action.

Canford Cliffs gelding who fetched €40,000 this year and is a half-brother to multiple winners over a variety of distances. Had a couple of useful sorts behind when scoring on 7f Redcar debut last autumn and should make a bold bid under penalty.

Decent efforts when placed on all three starts, including on 7f Wetherby return three weeks ago. Bit more called for to get head in front.

Shadwell-bred three-year-old who was sold cheaply (£5,500) in October and was unfancied and showed little on either start so far. Watching brief.

Betting

Forecast

I Could Do Better (5/6), Current Option (5/4), Brandy Spirit (11/4), So Macho (6/1), Ride The Monkey (12/1), Bold Show (16/1), Indiaro (66/1), Ghathanfar (80/1), Rodney After Dave (100/1), The Retriever (150/1)

Verdict

I COULD DO BETTER's debut win at Redcar is the best piece of form on offer and, despite carrying a penalty, he looks to be likeliest winner of this. Brandy Spirit has been consistent so far and heads the dangers while So Macho may offer more on return upped in journey.
