Seven-race maiden showed signs of life when third at Lingfield two starts back but flopped again at Leicester since. Risky proposition now.

Won twice here early in the year and although his three recent turf efforts have been less than inspiring a return here has to see him firmly in the mix.

0-12. Placed once for James Tate and again last time for this trainer, when 2L third of six at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) last month. Upped to this trip for the first time; chance if she stays.

Beaten double digit lengths in all three maiden starts so even at this low grade on handicap debut she is hard to fancy.

C&D win one of three scores in 2017 but lost all 14 races since. Bits and pieces of form since would suggest her well treated but is a risky proposition overall.

Showed next to nothing in last three starts including 11th of 12 at Lingfield latest and would be brave to have any confidence now.

Showed little in two starts in Ireland last autumn and four outings for this stable so far this season. Handicap falling but yet to see enough.

Showed next to nothing in first three starts and handicap debut ninth of 13 here wasn't evidence that she is one to side with any time soon.

Placed twice in his last three starts but a record of 2-45 is evidence that he is only really ever a place proposition.

Been off since April but is a C&D winner although he was well below par when last seen. Not getting any younger and probably best watched today.

Betting

Forecast

Bidding War (5/2), Warning Light (4/1), Zappiness (5/1), Be Thankful (6/1), Luxford (6/1), Heatherdown (8/1), Percy Toplis (10/1), Irish Times (10/1), London Pride (16/1), Outlaw Torn (25/1), Hooriya (25/1), Rainbow Spirit (25/1)

Verdict

In a pretty desperate affair dual 2019 course winner IRISH TIMES is worth siding with now back here for the first time since the spring. Upped in trip today Bidding War is an interesting rival. Percy Toplis can carry on his good run of form and again make the frame.
