9/2

Failed to step up on his form in minor company in handicaps the last twice separated by a six-month break; finished well beaten over 1m last time. Has some fair form to his name but has to improve to take this; may be better suited by 6f.

Run with enthusiasm in his two starts this year both on the AW looking as though a drop to 6f may suit him better. Went easily from the front on both starts before finding no extra late on; potentially better treated in handicaps.

Shaped as if in need of the experience on her debut with a very similar response when returned to the course after an eight-month break last month. Tried over a furlong shorter last time in truth it was a laboured effort; more needed.

Beaten 17L on her only start so far over 7f at Kempton she now switches to turf for her second start. Held back by inexperience on that occasion (slow to stride) she never landed a blow; should progress but hard to see her stepping up enough.

Quite well found in the market on her debut there was some promise in her debut effort over 1m at Windsor. Pedigree appeals but she still looks rather on the weak side (ran green); more time likely to be needed before she blossoms.

With a year between her two starts she may well have had a problem but there was some promise in her return effort last month over 6f. Made some late headway after running green, looks the sort who will step forward, suited by 7f plus.

39-0OR:
13/2

Made her debut over 1m here a trip that looks an absolute minimum for one with her pedigree (quite stoutly bred). Expectations looked low on her debut (started 33-1) but she shaped with encouragement; not certain to be suited by drop to 7f.

Betting

Forecast

Quirky Gertie (8/11), Gaslight (5/2), Denis The Diva (9/2), Moveonup (6/1), Zephyrina (13/2), Kasuku (16/1), Bonny Blue (33/1), Dee Dee Dottie (50/1)

Verdict

One or two of these will find handicaps offering them a better chance of winning a race with Moveonup and Gaslight two that fit that particular profile. QUIRKY GERTIE had the look of one who would improve for a run having returned from a break in a Lingfield race that looks sound enough form for this grade. Zephyrina made a pleasing debut but the drop to 7f may not suit although she may prove more streetwise this time around.
