3/1

More promising the last twice when not disgraced in handicaps over 7f/1m at Redcar/Thirsk. Steps up in trip to make debut at 1m2f, and could play a part if improving for it, but he does need to.

Beaten a long way when finishing in midfield over 1m here when last seen. Signs weren't overly encouraging when he could only beat one rival in 11-runner affair over this trip prior to that and needs to do much more now. Likely best watched.

8/1

Has first run on turf after posting a more encouraging effort on second handicap start when narrow third at Newcastle (7f; standard to slow). Steps up markedly in trip and could put best foot forward if fit enough after a break.

40/1

Proved to be a major disappointment on handicap debut on the level at Chelmsford (1m2f; standard) when only managing to beat one rival 364 days ago. Woefully out of form over hurdles since then and has plenty to prove as she returns to this code.

Fared more competitively since switched to this sphere. Does need to banish memory of his latest effort when producing a below-par effort at Beverley (1m2f; good to firm). Should be thereabouts on the basis of his form overall.

9/2

Drops back in trip to 1m2f for the first time after finishing well-beaten at Ripon (1m4f; good) when last seen. Been dropped 9lb in the weights since switched to handicaps, and doesn't seem one to place maximum faith in.

Betting

Forecast

Brutalab (5/4), Into The Zone (11/4), Gylo (3/1), Burnage Boy (9/2), Uh Oh Chongo (8/1), The Rutland Rebel (10/1), Fading Icon (40/1)

Verdict

A middle-distance maiden handicap to kick proceedings off. He had a rare off day last time, but given the consistency of his profile overall, Brutalab should be afforded another chance after making the frame on all four of his starts in handicaps prior to that disappointment. We can expect significant improvement from the lightly raced handicap debutante Into The Zone as he makes the transition to this sphere. However, the solid option looks to be UH OH CHONGO. The selection steps up in trip on his turf debut but posted a very encouraging effort on just his second handicap start when last seen, and with the possibility of more to come, he could be very difficult to beat.
