16/1

Unable to beat a single rival on each of his last two starts. Poor run of form means he is subsequently 8lb below last winning mark now. Hard to fancy when in current mood. Readily opposed.

Never involved when making it 0-11 on turf at Haydock (1m2f; good to soft) most recently. Drops back in trip to 1m now, but likely to be up against it yet again on this surface.

Showed a fair chunk of improvement on turf debut to score at the fifth attempt when successful at Catterick (7f; good to firm) on return from a break. Could kick on now as she steps up to 1m on this return to handicap company.

Drop in grade unable to work the trick when he finished eighth of nine at Beverley (1m2f; good to firm) recently. Drops down to 1m now, but has a bit to prove given what he has shown so far in handicaps. Not completely written off.

Tends to go well at this track, but did disappoint over 1m2f here last time out. Would have a squeak on the basis of his two efforts in defeat before that however. Only career success was achieved over C&D.

Not able to kick on from the promise of his first two efforts in handicaps. Finished ninth of 12 at Redcar (7f; good to firm) recently. Returns to 1m now, but is winless after seven runs, and hard to make a case for.

Maintained good run of form with a neck-second at Hamilton (1m; good) last month after winning there three starts back. Upped in grade for the first time in a while now, but is evidently in good heart and has to be considered.

Took backwards step from promising Hamilton (1m; good) effort when only managing to finish ninth on the AW at Newcastle (1m; standard). Return to turf could see him spring back to form, but overall profile isn't very appealing.

Not shown any improvement for the switch to handicaps, and although the step up in trip to 1m does offer some hope for improvement, he still has masses to prove. Best watched for the time being until displaying some ability.

Betting

Forecast

Mac Ailey (7/2), Critical Thinking (7/2), Strawberryandcream (5/1), Charlie's Boy (6/1), Agar's Plough (6/1), Be Bold (7/1), Frankster (9/1), Sumner Beach (10/1), Intense Style (16/1), Dyagilev (40/1)

Verdict

A low-grade handicap in which Dyagilev is an interesting contender. He is 0-5 and hasn't improved for the switch to handicaps, but the return to 1m is in his favour and he still retains potential in this sphere after showing evident promise in maidens last year. Strawberryandcream showed improvement for the switch to turf when breaking her maiden duck, and could progress now returned to 1m on just her second handicap start, but it seems best to stick with the proven performer at this level in the shape of BE BOLD. The aforementioned horse produced another good effort to finish a narrow second at Hamilton recently, and can continue his good run of form upped just 1lb.
