10/1

Useful handicapper but hardly the most frequent winner although his recent second to a well-handicapped winner at Redcar was a sound effort. Often slowly away his hold-up run style may see him at a disadvantage on this pace favouring track.

Ideally placed on the track when taking an Ascot 1m handicap on his seasonal return returning a career-best performance. That victory has made life harder for him though off a revised mark in two runs since; suspect the handicapper is in control.

Twice a winner last summer (one of the wins coming over C&D) he's continued his upward trend this season already scoring at Yarmouth over 1m. Improved again last time over C&D only beaten by a rapidly improving three-year-old; sure to run well again.

Never really went on from her 1m Redcar win last summer off a 2lb lower mark when with Brian Meehan (should have done better). Shaped well on her first run for this yard at Lingfield having been eased by the handicapper; entitled to build on that.

From last year's winning yard they will do well to land this again with one who is an infrequent winner although he's not been with them long. Softer ground wouldn't have suited last time but expensive to keep making excuses for him.

No surprise to see him make big strides this year (bred to be a better 3yo); turned in a sound effort first-time out this year when second on the Rowley Mile (form well advertised since). Off the mark last time (put experience to good use) over C&D.

The one handicap newcomer in the field his sights were lowered to make a winning AW debut (second run overall) back in February over an extended 1m (form franked since). Bumped into a useful sort over C&D last time; mark not that lenient though.

16/1

Already produced three wins this season (all on the AW; Tapeta at up to 7f); has held his form well returned to turf, ran with credit to take third here last time. Most of his recent turf form has come over 6f so this 1m provides him with a new test.

Took him five attempts to get off the mark as a juvenile scoring over 7f at Chester; confirmed himself to be a useful 2yo with a nursery second. Hard to know what to make of his efforts this year; outclassed but stranded on the wrong side last time.

9/2

Useful form when winning two handicaps this year both over 1m at Doncaster the second when getting a well-judged ride from the front. Excuses for his defeat last time (trip and ground) at Sandown; wouldn't rule out him bouncing back over this 1m.

Betting

Forecast

Moqtarreb (15/8), Artistic Rifles (9/2), Balgair (11/2), Wings Of Time (6/1), Global Gift (6/1), Nkosikazi (17/2), Ulshaw Bridge (10/1), Mordred (16/1), Martineo (16/1), Enigmatic (20/1), Leader Writer (22/1)

Verdict

Three-year-olds have made a decent showing in this since 2010 despite only having 35% if the runners they have won the race four times landing a 1-2-3 in 2017. That age group look to have a strong representation this year with handicap debutante Wings Of Time and C&D winner Moqtarreb both holding strong claims. However, it’s four-timer seeking GLOBAL GIFT who makes the most appeal despite a further 5lb rise for his Doncaster win which saw him quicken well and win with a bit left in the locker. Of the older horses the reliable Balgair should run his race having shown a liking for this venue with Nkosikazi also respected from a decent mark.
