Fair sixth in a C&D contest on soft ground in June but absent since finishing down the field in a 6f AW handicap at Newcastle later that month. Races off a mark 2lb lower than when winning over C&D last October.

Good 2L fourth in a 6f handicap at Hamilton (good) last month. Failed to replicate that effort at Ayr (6f, good-to-soft) nine days later and interesting to see how he fares down in trip.

12 race maiden ran well when 1L third at Musselburgh (5f, good) on his return from a break on Friday. Races off the same mark here and is a notable runner in this contest.

Broke his maiden when taking a 5f Class 7 on the AW at Newcastle in March. Disappointing since however including twice on turf. Others make more appeal.

73 race maiden finished a well held sixth over this trip at Pontefract (good) recently. Probably best watched in this contest.

Not the most consistent performer but ran well when 4L second in first time blinkers (retained since) over this trip at Thirsk (good) on her penultimate start. Fair 6¼L seventh in a big field at Redcar (6f, good) last time out.

Ran well to finish fourth in a 5f handicap at Thirsk (good) last time out. Beaten 4½L that day and is interesting off a mark 7lb lower than for his most recent victory.

Placed twice from four starts this campaign including when third over this distance at Chepstow (good-to-soft) on her penultimate start. Struggled last time out and needs to put that latest effort behind her on return from a break.

Good 2½L second in a C&D handicap on soft ground in June. Visor worn for the first time that day retained since and is interesting despite finishing only seventh at Chepstow (5f, good) a week later on her only subsequent start.

Maiden after four starts and finished a well beaten 11th of 12 on seasonal and handicap debut at Beverley (5f, good) in May. Others hold stronger claims.

Betting

Forecast

Dancing Mountain (11/2), Tadaany (11/2), The Grey Zebedee (6/1), Optimickstickhill (6/1), Rockley Point (7/1), Racquet (8/1), Bluella (10/1), Glyder (14/1), Sambucca Spirit (16/1), Furni Factors (16/1), Pearl Noir (16/1), Lady Joanna Vassa (20/1), Sing Bertie (25/1), Whispering Soul (25/1), Celerity (33/1)

Verdict

THE GREY ZEBEDEE showed improved form when placed last time out and he can get off the mark with a victory in this competitive sprint handicap. The selection remains open to improvement and he can see off Sing Bertie who showed good placed form on the AW earlier in the year. Third place can go to Rockley Point who won off a higher mark here last autumn.
