20/1

Losing run goes all the way back to 2017 and out of form in four starts this year. Has won over C&D but not particularly well-handicapped and others preferred.

8/1

Hasn't won since a Listed success in 2017 but he's been running better than that record suggests. Disappointing favourite last time at Pontefract and while the step back up in trip should help, he would probably prefer an ease in conditions.

Progressive filly who has won three of her five starts including a C&D success last time out. Up 7lb for that but looks certain to have more to give.

Two-time C&D winner who got his head back in front at Lingfield (AW) earlier in the campaign. Has gone backwards since and while he finds himself back on his last winning handicap mark; others make more appeal.

Very inconsistent sort but effective on his day, as seen when winning a C&D event last summer. Back below his last winning mark but didn't shape like a return to form was imminent last time.

14/1

Inconsistent type but has two wins from four starts this year. Failed to back up his Goodwood success when virtually tailed off at Kempton last time. Hampered that day, so did have some excuses but hardly one to rely on.

59-4OR: 79D
25/1

Five wins from 16 starts on AW but winless in 11 turf attempts and he looks vulnerable from this sort of handicap mark, as seen last time out at Doncaster; others preferred.

C&D winner but hasn't won since that success in 2017. Becoming very well-handicapped on old form and has shaped okay a couple of times this season; not ruled out.

11/2

Won twice as a juvenile and only narrowly denied in the valuable sales race at Doncaster. Returned to form with an excellent second of 13 over C&D last time behind Jaleel and may would have won if he had settled better. 2lb rise for that is fair.

Won twice as a juvenile and gained a first win since at Carlisle last time out in a five-runner event. Plenty more needed carrying a 6lb penalty for the win.

Has improved since joining this yard and gained two wins on AW this winter. Has lost his form since but dangerously well-handicapped as a result. Best form on turf has come on soft.

9/2

Narrowly got the better of Dirty Rascal last time out over C&D on just his fifth start. doesn't look entirely straightforward (flashed his tail when ridden last time) but clearly has plenty of ability and less exposed than most.

6/1

Has run well in defeat on each of his three novice events, all at this venue. May have been let in lightly by the assessor for his handicap debut here and not ruled out for a yard in form.

Betting

Forecast

Breathtaking Look (9/2), Jaleel (9/2), Dirty Rascal (11/2), Light And Dark (6/1), Medieval (7/1), Tommy Taylor (8/1), I Am A Dreamer (10/1), La Maquina (14/1), Rum Runner (16/1), Shady Mccoy (20/1), Maksab (25/1), Rampant Lion (25/1), Portledge (25/1)

Verdict

Another competitive heat but the preference is for DIRTY RASCAL who was only narrowly denied when returning to form here last time out and if he can settle better this time, he may be able to reverse for with Jaleel who didn't look entirely straightforward last time but has a fair chance himself with just a 3lb rise to cope with. Light And Dark would appear to have a nice mark for handicap debut while Medieval is starting to look as if he's on a nice handicap mark. Breathtaking Look is another danger with a progressive profile.
  1. Dirty Rascal
  2. Jaleel
  3. Light And Dark
