Impressed in winning over 1m5f at Hamilton (good-to-firm) on his penultimate start and ran well to be third at Epsom (1m4f, good) subsequently. One for the shortlist having won over C&D in the past.

Registered a 6L victory in a 1m handicap at Brighton (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Below that form at Hamilton (good) at the weekend and interesting to see how he fares back up in trip.

Showed some fair form when beaten 10L when eighth over 1m4f at Fairyhouse (good) last month. This looks a weaker contest and she is one to note on this occasion.

Well beaten in two starts since joining this stable including in first time cheekpieces (replaced with a visor here) over 1m2f at Chelmsford in May. Stepping up in trip following a short break.

Failed to figure in six starts including when 13L seventh over 1m2f at Beverley (good) on handicap debut last month. Others make more appeal.

Seven race maiden finished well beaten in a claiming race over 1m2f at Redcar (good-to-firm) in May. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is retained for this handicap debut.

Returning from a break and well beaten when refusing in a handicap chase at Market Rasen (2m1f, good-to-soft) in February. Probably best watched on first outing since.

Betting

Forecast

Be Perfect (1/1), Sheila's Empire (5/2), Orobas (9/2), Rockliffe (7/1), My Renaissance (7/1), Wynfaul The Wizard (33/1), Late For The Sky (33/1), Jackman (40/1), Monzino (250/1)

Verdict

SHEILA'S EMPIRE ran a respectable race in a big field handicap last time out and she can register her first success by taking this amateur riders contest. The selection can see off her rivals here with top weight Be Perfect capable of finishing runner-up having shown good form of late. Third place can go to Orobas who is stepping back up in distance.
  1. Sheila's Empire
  2. Be Perfect
  3. Orobas
