- Polo At The Manor Handicap (Class 6)
- 7f 16y, Good to Firm (Good in Places)
- 12 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Fancied on debut when up against Calyx and was again supported on his reappearance when he potentially met another useful rival. Not overburdened on handicap bow if able to replicate his home form.
Successful in a 7f maiden at Wolverhampton last summer, but hasn't built on that, and just respectable efforts at best this season. Fairly treated, but must kick on.
Placed over 1m in novice company at Brighton (good) in October, but struggling since and neither run this year has promised much.
Looked lazy a couple of times in his first season and no surprise to see him gelded during the winter. Yard do well with this age group here but it seems likely he will want further.
Has been sprinting of late and has looked short of pace. May do better reverting to this trip in a handicap, but overall she appears to lack the tools needed for this.
13-race maiden for Richard Hughes who was highly tried on only previous attempt at this trip. Best efforts give him every chance off this mark but others may be more reliable and less exposed.
Showed a bit more on last start for Amanda Perrett before joining this yard for 8,000 gns. Gelded since but remains a risk until showing more.
A combination of blinkers and a step up to 6f saw him open his account here three weeks ago. Similarly a shorter trip and penalty saw him struggle to get competitive three days later, but he has a lot more going for him here.
Has not beaten a rival in either of her two handicap starts and makes little appeal judged on the little she has revealed.
Inconsistent filly in 2018 and yet to produce a good display in 2019. Has left Ireland to join a yard who are 0-13 on the Flat over the past five years.
Caught the eye making late gains on stable debut when Brother Bentley was behind. Can build on that over this longer trip and is of definite interest.
No show in four starts and hard to fancy here off a mark 11lb higher than she is officially rated.
