5/2

Bounced back to form when posting career-best victory in 5f Newmarket handicap last month. Fair 4lb rise for that success but that should stop her progressing again. Leading player.

7/2

Decisive winner of two 5f Nottingham handicaps earlier in the season but below par in two starts since, most recently when sixth at Chester (5f, soft). Excuses that day and should be thereabouts if bouncing back.

2-4 this season, including when landing similar C&D handicap and wasn't disgraced at Bath (5f, good) last time. That form hasn't worked out well and 3lb above last winning mark but dangerous to rule out.

7/2

Has been running consistently this season without winning. Arguably ran career-best when fourth in competitive 6f York handicap when last seen. Creeping up the handicap now but this is an easier contest. Place claims.

No progression from stable debut when well held fifth of eight over C&D in early June. Dropping in the handicap but more required to be competitive in this contest.

14/1

Back to form in last two starts and was a solid third in 7f Leicester claimer last time out. Dropped in trip but upped in class and is vulnerable to some improvers.

Betting

Forecast

Dark Shadow (5/2), Wedding Date (5/2), Free Love (7/2), Pass The Gin (7/2), Jungle Inthebungle (14/1), Pink Iceburg (33/1)

Verdict

There's very little between the leading contenders but with the handicapper leniently dropping him 1lb for his last run, DARK SHADOW is the one to beat on the basis of his reliable course form. Free Love is better than what her two most recent results suggest and with a small field with little bias, this could be a good opportunity to get back on the winning keel, while Wedding Date posted a career-best last time out but may be slightly vulnerable off top weight.
