79-7OR: 68D
6/1

Has fallen to 11lb below last winning mark and any further ease in the ground would be in his favour. Racing to a consistent level in four starts this year and shouldn't be far away again.

Showed ability in all three starts last year but refused to enter the stalls on his final intended start and his form has regressed this season. Blinkers replaced by first-time cheekpieces and hard to fancy.

Five race maiden on the Flat and hard to know what his best distance is as of yet. Slower ground may help but needs to find a lot more after struggling in both starts in handicap company.

Likes to front run or race on the pace and twice a winner so far. Now 11lb lower on the turf compared to the AW but form has gone backwards since last win and plenty more required.

Handles soft ground and now 1lb lower than his last winning mark. Lost his form in his last two starts of 2018 and never got involved on last month's poor return. Best watched for now.

Still 3lb higher than last winning mark which cames over 7f here in April but well handicapped on old form. Not disgraced in two runs on quicker ground since and handles soft well. Looks a leading player.

All five career wins have come at sprint distances but stayed on last time over a half furlong shorter as though he's worth a try at this far nowadays. Remains in consistent form and shouldn't be far away again.

Losing run stretches back to August 2017 but has fallen 11lb below that last winning mark and all three career wins have come with cut in the ground. Raced solidly in two starts for new yard but stamina a question over this far.

Took advantage of much reduced mark when bouncing back to form over 7f at Wolverhampton (AW) recently. 5lb penalty shouldn't be an issue and stays this far, however would prefer quicker ground back on turf.

Both wins from 20 starts came back in 2017 over sprint distances and this trip poses a query. Never got involved on last month's stable debut and hard to make a strong case for.

One win from 19 starts came in maiden company back in 2017 at his regular haunt, Pontefract. Given a chance by the handicapper as he drops 3lb but does remain hard to place and wide draw a negative.

Remains a maiden after eight starts and dropped a further 5lb after missing the break the last twice. Wide draw to overcome and much more required.

9/1

Third off 2lb higher when a beaten favourite in this race last year. Has run into form the last twice and likely to go close again. Just two wins from 41 starts compared to 10 seconds and six thirds does remain a worry.

Betting

Forecast

The Stalking Moon (6/1), Mutarakez (6/1), Thornaby Nash (7/1), Kingdom Brunel (7/1), Fake News (9/1), Rebel State (9/1), Frankster (10/1), Al Ozzdi (10/1), Dandy Highwayman (12/1), Ventura Royal (12/1), Desert Dream (14/1), Scots Sonnet (20/1), Intense Pleasure (25/1), Global Exceed (50/1)

Verdict

Rebel State is well drawn and went close in this last year but his overall strike-rate suggests he may be more of a place candidate. THORNABY NASH remains nicely handicapped and the switch back to a much easier surface could see him return to winning ways. Mutarakez is consistent and also has conditions in his favour.
