66/1

An AW winner off a higher mark over this trip last December but has been quiet subsequently. Added to a rather patchy record in first-time cheekpieces last time running very much below-par (struggled from a long way out) over C&D; comes with risks.

Resumed winning ways building on a solid effort the time before when winning over C&D in May off 4lb lower mark (made all; travelled well). Appeared undone by the small rise in the weights last time at Leicester; eased in grade again.

Showed that he had a future in this sphere when switching to turf on the level over C&D last time (made up plenty of ground late on). Would appear to have a future in handicaps (on a handy mark based on his hurdles form); longer trip may be needed.

Gained a Leicester handicap win via a disqualification in April over 2f shorter taking advantage of a career-low mark. Ran well when trying to follow up (not given the best of rides); failed to impress last time, steps up 2f here.

C&D win kicked started a good run of form in 2016 (first leg of a handicap hat-trick) but has failed to win since although has been lightly raced. Returns to the Flat after showing very little over hurdles in three runs since December; had wind op.

Scored twice last year over C&D; part of a five-win 2018 although his form did tail off after the last of those wins in July. Hasn't returned in quite the same form in three starts this year (may have needed first run); back on last winning mark.

Starts out for a new yard having not yet recorded a win in any sphere that he's competed in. Not seen on the Flat since running three times on the level for the John Hammond yard in France; typically looks a hard ride, makes limited appeal.

Dropped 5lb after she offered very little on her reappearance last time after an absence of 18 months. Always behind when starting at 33-1 in an amateur riders' AW handicap (1m2f); makes little appeal even in this low-grade event.

Unreliable sort who hasn't been seen since February when he ran poorly after showing some promise on his previous outing. Course winner (7f) he has slumped to a dangerous looking mark if he could be coaxed back to form; remains an unsafe proposition.

Cashed in on a career-low mark to score at Wolverhampton in March over a shorter trip with the cards not quite falling right for him on his last two starts. Shaped well last time (got into a poor position); should be suited by a return to 1m4f.

Caused a surprise when taking a Bath handicap last September off a basement mark over 1m5f (ridden to make use of his stamina). Well held in three runs since then; returns from a long absence with plenty to prove, others appeal more.

Modest maiden who has run below form in her last two starts; generally inconsistent she's also shown signs of being temperamental. Out of the handicap with a far from convincing profile; difficult to build a persuasive picture.

48-2OR: 45
18/1

Reliable sort at a lowly level but has yet to win a race (0-20) and often blights her chance by starting slowly. Not disgraced last time when finishing mid-pack at Leicester but essentially exposed and vulnerable; runs from out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Ascot Day (9/4), And The New (5/2), Kingfast (8/1), The Lords Walk (9/1), General Brook (14/1), Amangiri (14/1), Sellingallthetime (16/1), Sunshineandbubbles (16/1), Star Of Athena (16/1), Sigrid Nansen (18/1), Boycie (20/1), Rosie Royale (25/1), Street Jester (28/1), Khismet (33/1), Woggle (33/1), Mouchee (66/1), Atlantic King (66/1)

Verdict

A modest start to the card but AND THE NEW may be thrown for his Flat handicap debut off a mark of 65 (rated 132 over hurdles) and that makes his mark of 65 look rather lenient after he was given a sighter over C&D last time in a novice. C&D winner Ascot Day is one of the main dangers having run a respectable third last time in a better grade than this; he will appreciate the return to this grade. General Brook and Sigrid Nansen are both reliable sorts at this level with the former looking interesting back on his last winning mark. Kingfast is rated the other main protagonist after his last two runs have shown him in good form with a return to this trip a bonus.
