49-5OR: 50
3/1

Record now reads 0-28 but there have been glimmers of promise this year and signs that he may at last break his maiden. Headgear returns after being absent last time, takes a fair drop in grade from his starts, not without a chance in this company.

8/1

Inconsistent sort who usually runs well in the month of July 114133236 (3-9) but failed to build on that record over 5f at Brighton (5f) yesterday (0-75 handicap). That grade is likely to prove beyond him these days, more chance here if he turns up.

5/1

Burst back to life last time at Brighton (all three runs this year at the track) setting a fierce gallop and doing well to hold on for third. Appears to like the seaside track; not much form here but should be a major player if he can dominate.

33/1

Twenty-race maiden (0-7 on turf) who returns from a fair layoff to try and improve that record. Will need to improve greatly on what she's shown so far to take a hand even in this basement grade.

20/1

Not won for over three years but then that's par for the course in a race like this. Given a very attacking ride when last seen on the AW over 5f and didn't see the trip out (reported to have bled). Best form at this trip; comes with risks attached.

20/1

This will be his 143rd start but he's yet to regain any of his old enthusiasm this year with all of his form looking rather meagre even in the context of this race. Only beat one home on his return to action last time; looks far from reliable.

2/1

One of the few in this that come here in some sort of form and she usually runs her race at this venue (two course wins to her name over the extended 5f trip). Better than the bare result at Brighton over 6f last time; won't be far away in this.

5/1

Irish raider who ran her best race last time (this headgear combination on first time); proved her effectiveness at this trip. Would have finished better than third if not meeting trouble, drops in grade and a leading player on that performance.

Forecast

Toolatetodelegate (2/1), Ar Saoirse (3/1), Sweet Forgetme Not (5/1), Cool Strutter (5/1), Camanche Grey (8/1), Alaskan Bay (10/1), Swendab (20/1), Shackled N Drawn (20/1), Regal Miss (33/1)

Verdict

A race that will be run at a good pace with Cool Strutter who has been in good form of late; he will be dangerous if he can dominate and is a likely contender. His chance of an easy lead could be compromised by the fellow pace pusher Ar Saoirse and dual course winner Toolatetodelegate is taken to reverse recent Brighton form with him. Brian Barr’s charge deserves to win something like this having been hampered last time and he’s one of the more solid options in the field. SWEET FORGETME NOT just shades the decision, the only three-year-old in the field she ran well at Windsor last time shaping better than her finishing position having been hampered and will welcome this ease in grade.
