8/1

Won in this class at Bath in April and not disgraced at a higher level in three starts since. Plenty of wieght but ease in grade should help his cause. Yard having a quiet time of late.

5/1

First win for two years when really knuckled down well to score by a short-head at Newbury last time and is 3lb higher now. Missed the break on only previous attempt on AW so is fairly unexposed on this surface.

In great form last summer landing h'cap hat-trick but raised 13lb for his troubles. Found life tougher in two hurdles starts during the winter for Dr Richard Newland and reappears now for original handler. May be better for the outing after break.

Perfect 3-3 record here and battled home by a neck to score last time over 1m3f. Raised 4lb for that but hard to say he's reached his limit and clearly loves it round here.

Looking for a 10th career success but on a long losing run stretching back to May 2017. Ran well enough last time when fourth here but 2lb drop may not be quite enough.

Decent handicapper for Andrew Balding two season ago and won over hurdles in Ireland last year. Not shown much at all in three runs for current yard and despite 4lb drop looks to face a stiff task.

7/1

Placed eight times but hasn't won in 21 starts since scoring on racecourse bow at Wolverhampton in June 2017. Close third over C&D in March off this mark so has a squeak if on top of his game.

20/1

Landed 1m4f AW handicap at Wolverhampton in May and runs on an artificial surface for the first time since having failed to shine on turf last two outings. 2lb higher than her latest win so may not be far away.

20/1

Step back up to this trip may help but has found winning a tough task in recent seasons. Solid third at Chepstow last time but likely to find one or two too good yet again.

Betting

Forecast

The Pinto Kid (11/8), Frontispiece (5/1), Garbanzo (13/2), Running Cloud (7/1), Hareeq (8/1), Noble Gift (12/1), Brittanic (20/1), Lost History (20/1), Torcello (100/1)

Verdict

Horses for course is an old adage but it applies absolutely to THE PINTO KID who loves it here and is unbeaten in three visits, all in handicaps. He may still have more to offer and can extend his excellent record at this venue. Frontispiece is a danger with his yard going well at the moment and he is unexposed on this surface, while Lost History is another who has reasonable claims on the balance of his AW form. Garbanzo would have a chance if fully fit following a long break and if supported in the market would be worthy of consideration.
