Broke his maiden when winning by a neck over C&D on good-to-soft ground last time out. Raised 2lb for that victory and is one for the shortlist in this contest.

Running well in defeat this campaign most recently when 5L fifth over C&D last month. Previously third at Carlisle (6f, good-to-firm) and is of interest once more. Also declared 17:45 Carlisle Monday.

Victorious in a 5f handicap at Chepstow (good-to-soft) on his penultimate start. Struggled when ninth at Wolverhampton (6f) on the AW last time out and needs to put that latest effort behind him.

Signs of a possible return to form when 3L sixth behind Mr Greenlight in a C&D handicap on good-to-soft ground two weeks ago. Interesting off a mark 11lb lower than for his most recent turf success.

Promising 3¾L seventh in a 12 runner good-to-soft ground event over C&D on handicap debut last time out. Remains open to improvement and market support would be notable.

Ran well to finish a neck second to Mr Greenlight in a C&D contest on good-to-soft going last month. Fair 7L eighth in a big field at Redcar (6f, good) next time out and interesting to see how she performs.

55 race maiden has struggled in recent starts including over an extended 5f at Chester (good) last month. Others make more appeal racing from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Mr Greenlight (5/2), Cupid's Arrow (9/2), Someone Exciting (13/2), Mightaswellsmile (15/2), Lets Go Flo (9/1), B Fifty Two (10/1), Lexington Palm (10/1), Nifty Niece (12/1), The Retriever (16/1), Crosse Fire (20/1), Sovereign State (25/1), Caledonian Gold (80/1)

Verdict

B FIFTY TWO ran well when placed on his penultimate start and he can register a victory in division two of this sprint handicap. The selection has the trip and forecast going to suit and he can see off last time out winner Mr Greenlight who can take second ahead of Mightaswellsmile who was placed here on her penultimate start.
  1. B Fifty Two
