Returned to form when third at Doncaster (7f; good to firm) in what was a good quality contest. Tends to go well without winning at this level but current form of stable is off-putting. Place claims.

Behind Tommy G at Ayr (7f; good to firm) so has work to do to reverse the form with that rival. However, his latest effort when sixth at Newcastle in the Seaton Delaval Handicap brings him right into this with definite possibilities.

Enjoyed a successful end to last season but has been unable to cope with the 6lb rise he was dealt with for winning on final start of 2018. Handicapper isn't really relenting and he doesn't make much appeal when in current form.

Improved for the switch to handicaps last season winning three times, including a C&D success. Makes seasonal reappearance and this represents a slight step up in grade, but he is still lightly raced and could prove well up to the task.

Dual C&D victor last season and although there is a slight question mark against him regarding fitness, he holds obvious claims on seasonal debut. Rose an impressive 21lb in the handicap last season and could keep improving.

Has been running more consistently this season. Ultimately disappointing last time though when sent off favourite at Ayr (7f; good) and only managing to finish fifth of seven. Vulnerable to improvers and does not make much appeal in this contest.

Likes it at this track (won four times at Musselburgh). Latest effort at Carlisle (1m; good to firm) when a respectable third behind the progressive Jackhammer could see him go close in this heat. Consistent sort.

Ended 2018 campaign in good style. Has returned to the track in nothing like that form for new yard though and was-well beaten at Redcar (1m; good to firm) last time. Best watched.

Betting

Forecast

Raselasad (9/4), Tribal Warrior (3/1), Glengarry (13/2), Jacob Black (8/1), Pepys (8/1), Tommy G (12/1), Parys Mountain (12/1), How Bizarre (20/1)

Verdict

A race which can be quickly narrowed down to a few contenders who have genuine claims. After running his best race for some time when sixth in the Seaton Delaval Handicap at Newcastle last week, Glengarry is a major player. There is nothing of the class he came up against then in this race which should enable him to run very well. Tribal Warrior was a progressive sort as a three-year-old and improved for the switch to handicap company. It is interesting that he is sent this far North to make his seasonal reappearance, but we will take a chance on PEPYS who made giant strides as a handicapper last season. He can resume his progress with his 261-day absence not a worry.
  1. Pepys
