Weighed In

Off time: 19:24  |   Winning time: 1m 21.61s

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-13  |  J: Cieren Fallon |  T: B R Johnson|  OR: 64|  D

Dual winner already this year seemingly improved by a wind op taking two 7f handicap the latest at Leicester (first run after being gelded). Showed a good attitude when winning last time; hard to beat despite carrying a 6lb penalty.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-9  |  J: Tom Marquand |  T: B J Meehan|  OR: 66

Only handicap newcomer in the field (trainer 10% strike-rate with handicap debutantes since 2014). Shaped better than the distance than he was beaten last time in a minor event at Newbury (appears fair form); not harshly treated if coping with track.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-7  |  J: S W Kelly |  T: R M H Cowell|  OR: 64

Continues to disappoint with no appreciable improvement in his form since stepping into handicaps. Well beaten over this trip last time at Leicester with the handicapper not appearing to want to cut him some slack; best watched for now.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: J F Egan |  T: J G Portman|  OR: 62

Ran poorly last time having caught the eye the time before on her second handicap start over 7f, perhaps the drop to 6f was to blame (was weak in the market). Returns to 7f now with blinkers added for the first-time; looks on a competitive mark.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: Darragh Keenan |  T: A Bailey|  OR: 61|  CD

One of only three previous winners in this field; that win coming over C&D on his penultimate start (putting everything together for the first time). Ran as well in defeat last time over this trip at Leicester off 6lb higher, same mark here.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-3  |  J: Jason Watson |  T: W Jarvis|  OR: 60

Didn't look to be progressing in three starts in minor events but ran with some credit on her handicap debut having been very slowly away on the AW (6f). Returns to 7f/turf now needing to start better; still needs one or two to falter.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-2  |  J: R Winston |  T: A W Carroll|  OR: 59

Took a definite step forward in form terms when finishing second at Goodwood (7f, good/soft) last time having had eight months off. Needs to prove that run wasn't a fluke (earlier form looks flimsy); runs off the same mark.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: T P Queally |  T: E A L Dunlop|  OR: 56

A return to sprinting/career-low mark worked the oracle for him to win his only race so far at Chelmsford in February. Hasn't really pulled up any trees in form terms since; suspicion remains he may be better on synthetic surfaces (0-3 on turf).

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-4  |  J: Hayley Turner |  T: J Ryan|  OR: 47

Back to form from out of the blue last time despite dwelling at the start over 1m here just failing to get up and taking second. Had plenty of chances in handicaps before so there must be a doubt about the form; chance if she can repeat.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-2  |  J: Gabriele Malune |  T: M R Bosley|  OR: 45

Stable debut having left Jamie Osborne over the winter with very little sign of any ability so far including on handicap debut. Has a significant absence to deal with and on what she's shown so far of little interest for now.

Your Mothers' Eyes (9/4), Bring Us Paradise (10/3), Run After Genesis (4/1), Kaafy (7/1), Miss Liberty Belle (10/1), Loving Life (16/1), Moneta (16/1), Princess Florence (20/1), Global Acclamation (25/1), Turquoise Friendly (25/1), Grey Hare (33/1), Double Coffee (50/1)

The first of two three-year-old handicaps on the cards with most of these having already running this sphere and hardly any are holding any secrets from the handicapper. Run After Genesis is one of only three winners in the field, he’s sure to be thereabouts but his penalty makes life tougher. Your Mothers’ Eyes and Global Acclamation are the other two with a “W” against their names with the former preferred out of that duo. Bring Us Paradise and Princess Florence both went close on their latest starts but have to prove those runs weren’t a fluke. KAAFY is the only handicap newcomer in the field and his debut in this sphere sees him in calmer waters off what looks a workable mark.
