4/1

Improved showing having had 428-days off/wind surgery when third in Plumpton maiden hurdle last month. Should go well switched straight to handicaps with that in mind.

4/1

Sedgefield handicap winner in November (rated 99) and has run some consistent races in defeat since. Never a threat last time at Bangor however when fifith of 13 over longer trip. Drop in distance no concern.

Just 1-22 over timber so far, has been running over much longer trips since joining this yard without hinting at success and needs to turn things around dramatically.

8/1

Showed some ability over hurdles when trained in Ireland and landed a point-to-point in April. Tailed off here over fences since, doesn't make significant appeal.

Has found it tough going in four starts for this handler, including when switched to hurdling at Uttoxeter last time. Finished fifth, 40L in arrears of the winner.

7/1

11-race maiden with rather patchy look to his form. Has ability and was fancied on stable debut over C&D this month though finished last of six. Tongue-tie tried here and interesting to see where he sits in the market.

710-0OR: 79
4/1

Irish import, showed little in novice events but has hinted at better since going handicapping, with April's Taunton third (2m½f, good; 25-1) the best to date. Didn't build on that over further since at Newton Abbot, may do now.

Mare is 0-10 and unplaced in her eight previous runs over timber following poor return at Ludlow (2m, good; 20-1) last month. 10-years-old and hard to see her competitive on these terms.

Betting

Forecast

Cape Hideaway (10/3), Outcrop (4/1), Broke Away (4/1), Sizing Tara (4/1), Highway Star (7/1), Caveat Emptor (8/1), Patsio (11/1), Richardofdoccombe (14/1), Right Royals Day (40/1)

Verdict

After an improved showing last time, this appears a really presentable chance for SIZING TARA to make a winning start in handicaps in the Potts colours. Highway Star failed to match market expectations here last time but could do better while Broke Away and Outcrop (down in trip) are others with potential.
  1. Sizing Tara
  2. Highway Star
  3. Outcrop
