18:00 Redcar Wed 31 July 2019
Notched a fourth career win when edging out Kannapolis by ¾L at Ripon (1m, good to firm) on penultimate start, and failed to handle the camber at Epsom last time. Could easily bounce back.
Needed the run on debut for new yard, and much better effort when third of 12 to Remember Rocky in amateur event at Ayr last time, keeping on well after stumbling badly. Entitled to go well with a repeat.
Goes well for this rider, winning similar events at Salisbury and Leicester this season. Good third to Redarna in lady riders' race at Ascot on Saturday, and leading claims back down in class.
Competitive throughout the duration of the current turf season with a couple of willing successes at Thirsk (7f-1m). Ran a rare poor race last time, but likely to bounce straight back given his overall record.
Has won at Beverley in May and Yarmouth (1m, heavy) in June. In the grip of the handicapper since, but would enter the equation if the ground turned testing.
Won at Southwell in May for David Barron, but well beaten in two turf starts for new yard under this rider, and easy enough to oppose on recent evidence.
Won a maiden for Joseph O'Brien last year, but essentially regressive for a couple of different yards since, and while he has a chance on the pick of his form for this stable, he's hard to back with any confidence.
Twice a winner last spring, but her form tailed off subsequently, and she makes limited appeal on her return from over nine months off, unless the subject of market support.
Goes well at Newcastle, but below form since winning there in March. Has dropped to an attractive mark, but has something to prove, and doesn't look an ideal ride for an amateur.
Yard does well with similar sorts, but this mare proved a disappointment when heavily backed at Carlisle on her penultimate start, and she didn't do much to encourage support under this rider at Wolverhampton last time.
Has won just once from 37 starts under Rules, and is running badly at present, so hard to make a case for him with the handicapper slow to relent.
Landed a lady amateurs' contest at Salisbury last autumn, and best effort this season when fourth at Beverley on penultimate start. Ran badly there last time, though, and proving hard to catch right.
Lightly-raced filly who produced a career-best effort when fifth of 10 to Ocean Air in a 1m½f handicap at Hamilton last time. Better than the bare result there, but must show she can build on it in this tougher contest.
Largely out of sorts this season, failing badly to build on a slightly more promising effort when down the field at Nottingham last time. No great appeal from out of the handicap now.
