20:10 Brighton Tue 9 July 2019
Made a decent start to life in handicaps when sixth at Windsor (6f; good). Big player if able to build upon that off 2lb lower, and he steps back up in trip to 7f on just his second handicap start.
Regressive since making a winning debut and mark has dropped 22lb since she started life in handicaps. Showed no signs of life when sixth at Catterick (5f; good to firm) last time. Hard to find any real positives for her chances.
Respectable enough handicap debut when fifth at this track over 6f last time. Shaped as though the step back up in trip would suit and she is the dark horse in this race after just the four runs.
Shown no signs of improving on exploits in maidens since switching to handicaps. No obvious reason to see him reversing the form with Tarzan from there C&D run last time when she failed to beat a single rival home. Look elsewhere.
Doesn't win very often but has ran some admirable races in defeat lately since staying at 7f. Just failed to overturn warm favourite over C&D last time when three-quarter length second. Genuine possibilities off the same mark.
Tends to go well and was a comfortable winner over C&D last time when successful by just under two-length. Has a penalty to contend with but equally has a talented claimer onboard. Major shout.
Not shown a great deal of improvement for the switch to this code. Been running over further though (1m2f), so there is hope that the return to 7f may be just what she needs. Player despite having something to prove.
Standout run of late came over C&D but she is a very unreliable sort who usually tends to fail in her bid to reproduce a promising effort. Not a likely player and is best watched for the time being.
Showed a hint of promise as he outran 66-1 odds to come fifth at Chepstow (7f; good) on his first try at this trip. Has been dropped 3lb by the handicapper for that effort. Could well have more to offer over 7f.
