5/1

Carries top-weight but has gone well over C&D before and is a largely consistent sort. Rare poor run when last seen, but that came in a competitive handicap at Newcastle (1m; standard to slow). Given short break since then and could get involved.

Vulnerable to less exposed rivals, and he could only manage 13th in a 14-runner affair at Ripon (1m; good to firm) on return from short break last month. Cannot be recommended.

5/1

Underwhelming on handicap debut when things didn't go to plan at Wolverhampton (7f; standard). Displayed more than enough ability in maidens/novice races during the winter to suggest he can win plenty races at this level. Given another chance.

7/1

Looked regressive of late and is now 7lb below last winning mark. Drop in grade to Class 5 events has not worked the last twice either, so he has plenty to prove and is hard to fancy when in such dire form. Best watched.

5/1

Won twice here last season over slightly further. Hasn't been disgraced the last twice either after a pair of disappointing efforts before that. Returns to 1m for the first time since finishing third over C&D, and could play a part.

8/1

Maiden. Has had a wind-op since joining new stable, and although he didn't offer much when last seen, change of scenery could work the oracle especially if the market is to speak in his favour. Not ruled out.

11/1

Sent off at big prices in recent months and ran in accordance with them in the main. Wasn't beaten too far last time at Beverley (1m2f; good to firm) though, but would still need to show significant improvement on the bare form of that effort.

38-11OR: 58BF
4/1

Not finished out of the frame in his last five starts, so hard to knock his consistency. Sent off 3-1f at Musselburgh (1m; good) recently when finishing a close third. Another bold show likely as he bids to break his maiden tag at the 11th attempt.

48-9OR: 49C
7/1

Never looked dangerous in recent months and record over 1m doesn't offer much encouragement either. Another quiet run likely to be in store and he subsequently remains best watched.

Betting

Forecast

Juniors Fantasy (4/1), Newmarket Warrior (5/1), Quoteline Direct (5/1), So Macho (5/1), Dawn Breaking (7/1), Sir Victor (7/1), Star Of Valour (8/1), Laqab (11/1), Tagur (33/1)

Verdict

The second division of two Class 5 1m handicaps on the card. After fluffing his lines on his first start in a handicap, So Macho shouldn't be written off just yet as he steps up to 1m for the first time on his return to turf considering the promise he showed in maidens. The top-weight Newmarket Warrior wasn't totally disgraced when finishing in midfield in a warm handicap on the AW at Newcastle when last seen, and he has shown he goes well over C&D in the past. We'll opt for the admirably consistent JUNIORS FANTASY who surely it is a matter of when rather than if he will break his maiden tag. The form of any of his recent placed efforts would entitle him to go close.

  2. So Macho
