Creditable efforts for the most part in handicaps this term without looking as though he's going to win one despite how lurking 3lb below his last winning mark. Ran a little bit too free last time over 1m2f; this 1m1f trip should suit ideally.

Yet to prove he stays this trip having run consistently at slightly shorter trips this year before finding 1m2f at Bath too much of a test last time (below-par seventh). Back on his last winning mark but suspect the trip will defeat him despite that.

Sole handicap newcomer in the field he looks to have been handed a stiff mark on the bare form of what he's achieved so far. There is a suspicion however, that he might be able to show more in this sphere up in trip; note a market move.

First-time cheekpieces proved the catalyst that sparked him into life for his Bath minor event win last time (win came out of the blue). Headgear retained for now but he's not the most reliable and that win in a better race may be hard to replicate.

Not as exposed as some of this so that gives some hope despite the fact he's yet to win a race. Did a little too much last time; arguably didn't have the best of the conditions when well held over 1m here in June, has to prove himself at this trip.

The fact that she remains a maiden after 16 starts rather dents any enthusiasm for her chance despite a couple of recent efforts in cheekpieces that have shown her in a better light. Gets the better conditions she needs here; has an each-way chance.

Returns to the scene of one of his two wins having taken a small-field handicap here last year over 1m off this mark. Winless since then he's threatening to come good soon having shown more dynamism on his last two starts; enters calculations.

Basically out of form at the moment with a losing streak to her name that isn't at all encouraging. Hard to find many, if any positives about her chance having beaten just one home over 1m2f here last time; others far more persuasive.

Poor maiden who showed his first form last time in a first-time visor on the AW over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton. That run was some nine months ago so he does have a fair absence to overcome; others persuade more.

Progress in handicaps has been steady rather than spectacular; this looks the ideal trip with 1m2f proving just beyond her at Lingfield last time. Only beaten by another lightly raced 3yo; hard to see many with better credentials at this level.

Has rewarded each-way support on several occasions the latest being on her penultimate start before disappointing last time over 1m. Not sure to stay this 1m1f trip, her temperament becoming an increasing problem; one to be wary of for win purposes.

Given another chance in cheekpieces on his initial run for the yard but showed next to no promise for that headgear addition. Very little promise shown before that; has plenty to prove and not one to enter calculations.

Betting

Forecast

All Right (11/8), Edge (6/1), Percy Toplis (7/1), Approve The Dream (8/1), Coachella (10/1), Takiah (12/1), Guardiola (12/1), Pivello (14/1), Spirit Of Lucerne (20/1), Sittin Handy (25/1), Set Point Charlie (28/1), Conqueress (33/1), Lady Carduros (33/1), General Patton (66/1)

Verdict

As is usual with this level there aren’t that many in this field that are ahead of their marks and very few make that much appeal. ALL RIGHT has shown more since she moved into handicap company and with some more steady progression still likely she’s taken to land her first victory on her third handicap attempt. Percy Toplis the only course winner in the field has some better form of late to his name but his win-to-run ratio is rather off putting and in similar vein Guardiola isn’t the most consistent. Set Point Charlie will be worth watching for any positive market vibes while Takiah and Edge can’t be ruled out at bigger prices.
