Rattled up a hat-trick of wins in May and June prior to finding 1m6f too far at Chester last time out. Back down in trip is a positive but could now be in the grip of the handicapper. 2lb wrong at the weights.

Seven-race maiden. Raced awkwardly and didn't get a clear run when 9L fourth in 1m3f Yarmouth handicap (good to firm) on latest start. This is a weaker contest but 2lb out of the handicap too.

Winning sequence came to an end last time when slow start cost her chances with 10L fourth at Lingfield (1m3f, good to firm). Just 1lb lower for that effort but can be forgiven and could bounce back.

Generally hasn't been disgraced in handicap company this season. Not beaten far in fourth at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to firm) behind a progressive horse. Back down in trip and cheekpieces applied. Place claims.

Five-race maiden who wasn't able to compete off the back of a slow start at Beverley (1m4f, good) on latest start. Good form before that so can be forgiven for that effort and isn't without hope.

Consistent without winning in his last two starts, including when third at Lingfield (1m6f, soft) latest. Likely to run another admirable race but may be vulnerable to one or two horses.

Offered little in three starts to date and looked to further regress with 17L seventh in 1m2f at this track in July. Steps up in trip but others readily preferred.

Showed some signs of slight promise when seventh in 1m2f Windsor handicap, albeit beaten 13L. Looks to need more time and offers little appeal.

Starting to get his act together with racing. Backed up good third at Yarmouth on penultimate start with 1L third when stepped up to 1m2f at Windsor. Trip not set to be a problem and is shortlisted.

Betting

Forecast

Tavus (11/8), Glutnforpunishment (13/2), Monsieur Lambrays (8/1), Vindolanda (8/1), L'Un Deux Trois (8/1), Cherry Cola (10/1), Hermocrates (11/1), Culture (20/1), Mr Nice Guy (22/1), Ned Pepper (25/1)

Verdict

TAVUS has found wins hard to come by in his past two starts, but he remains on a workable mark for a powerful yard and this looks a good opportunity to finally get a win against some more exposed rivals. L'Un Deux Trois failed to stay an extreme test of trip too much last time out but came up against some progressive handicappers and the cheekpieces should sharpen him up enough to pose a stern challenge, while Hermocrates should be expected to offer another consistent run.
