6/4

Progressed with every run this season and made it two wins from two after ready success at Newbury (1m2f, good to firm) in July. Races from 2lb out of the handicap but the one to beat on form. Notable jockey booking.

Had good form in the spring and took a step back in the right direction when finishing a respectable second in 1m2f Chepstow handicap last month. Cheekpieces are retained for this and each-way claims if backing up that form.

Hasn't won since July 2018 but is running consistently. Endured a troubled passage when 9L fifth at Chester (1m5f) on latest start and has been eased 2lb in the handicap. One to consider for the places.

Bounced back to form in her last two starts, finishing second at Doncaster before landing narrow victory in 1m2f Nottingham handicap last time out. 4lb rise seems harsh and Cieren Fallon prefers Blue Medici, but commands respect.

In fine form in lesser company. Rattled up a hat-trick despite hanging right ay Hamilton (1m1f, good) last month and 3lb rise suggests the handicapper is taking no more chances. Dangerous to ignore for in-form yard.

Form has gone rapidly downhill since Wolverhampton third in January and recent 12L 10th at Yarmouth suggests he is out of his depth in this.

Betting

Forecast

Blue Medici (6/4), Dutch Coed (4/1), Destinys Rock (9/2), Four Kingdoms (5/1), Simbirsk (7/1), Lucy's Law (8/1), Atalanta Queen (14/1), The Night King (16/1), Motahassen (16/1), Bombero (16/1), Rayna's World (20/1), Aljunood (40/1)

Verdict

Despite racing from out of the handicap, BLUE MEDICI looks to be the one to beat off the back of his recent victories, which suggest he should prove to be handy in stronger handicaps down the line and looks to be the stable's first choice. Dutch Coed has been in similarly good form but may struggle to replicate them wins off his revised mark but shouldn't be discounted, while Blue Medici's stable companion Destinys Rock and Four Kingdoms have both shaped encouragingly recently and merit consideration for the places.
  1. Blue Medici
  2. Dutch Coed
  3. Four Kingdoms
