Slight concern about the form of the yard at the moment (0-19 in last 14 days). Should find this much easier than when unable to land a blow in Group 3 Palace House Stakes (5f; good to firm) which he ran in last time. 5lb below last AW winning mark.

Three-time C&D winner who has been faring okay this year. Slightly below-par when last seen finishing eighth at Windsor (6f; good). Won this race last year, but didn't have to give as much weight away.

Won the Portland Handicap at Doncaster (5f; good) on penultimate start of 2018. Been quite hit and miss since then. Mark has slowly slid to a favourable one as a result. Talented claimer also offsets a handy chunk of weight. Dangerous to dismiss.

In good form earlier this year, but has work to do to reverse the form of his two previous outings when well behind Cowboy Soldier. Does have the services of his in-form jockey to help him though.

Quite lightly raced in comparison to most of these. Ran to a good level when sixth in competitive sprint handicap at York (5f; good to firm) last time. Has a good record on the AW and likely to put up a bold show.

Had been enjoying a fairly good time of things prior to disappointing at York (5f; good to firm) on latest start. Sent off joint-fav for that contest but no surprise to see him bounce back at a track he has done well at in the past.

Out of form of late and most recent effort was poor when finishing 11th of 14 at York (5f; good to firm). Subsequently just 1lb higher than last winning mark, so is well handicapped but has to show much more if he is to get involved.

Shaped much more encouragingly when dropped in grade for the first time in a year when finishing third at this track last time. 1lb lower than for that effort and he could run well at a big price in a race he was well-fancied for last season.

Showed better form on the AW than on turf lately. Has registered two C&D wins to his name within the last three months. Must be respected off the back of that but has a stiff enough mark to contend with.

Has returned to the track this season in sparkling form. Won his last two, most recently when victorious at Redcar (5f; good to firm). 10lb higher than for the first of those two successes but foolish to dismiss him when in such a good mood.

Betting

Forecast

Cowboy Soldier (11/4), Lord Riddiford (7/2), A Momentofmadness (5/1), Royal Birth (6/1), Poyle Vinnie (8/1), Saaheq (8/1), Venturous (14/1), Tropics (20/1), Udontdodou (20/1), Encore d'Or (25/1)

Verdict

He has produced a handful of pretty low-key performances since popping up in the Portland Handicap at Doncaster back in September, but A Momentofmadness is now just 1lb higher in the handicap for that success. He requires a lot of faith to be placed in him as a win prospect though and isn't likely to offer much value. The in-form player is Venturous who is in the form of his life currently, and shouldn't be underestimated back in a Class 2. Despite the worrying run of form the Robert Cowell yard are going through, COWBOY SOLDIER could change that. He is still open to much more improvement in handicaps, is 2-3 on AW and wasn't disgraced in a hot race at York last time.
  1. Cowboy Soldier
