10/11

On a hat-trick bid following two strong performances over this distance since having a wind-op. Broke his maiden on the turf at Chepstow last month and then more recently he scored over this C&D. Has a 6lb penalty but a big player again here.

A C&D winner here last November. Was successful on turf over 1m½f at Nottingham two starts back in a nine runner field. Came home third of nine last time at Newbury (1m). Remains off the same mark on return to AW. Each-way claims.

Got off the mark for the first time on her latest start at Chelmsford (1m) when scoring by an impressive 3L last Saturday. Seems to enjoy this surface so there is likely to be more to come from her. Carries a 6lb penalty. Leading player.

Still looking for her first win after eight starts. Was fancied to go well at Sandown (1m) on her last run as she was the 3/1 favourite but she had to settle for sixth place of the nine. Has been eased 1lb. Good chance if she bounces back.

Has been well held on her four starts so far. Made her handicap debut at Sandown last month where she had just one horse behind her in a seven runner contest. Down 2lb. Others appeal more.

Has yet to get off the mark in seven runs. Has been running consistently well without success this season. He was third of seven last time at Sandown over 1m. Needs to improve on what he has shown so far on this surface.

Has been successful twice at this track this year, including once over this C&D. Could only come home sixth of seven last time at Epsom (7f). Improvement needed off this mark but she has to be respected at this course.

Still a maiden following six starts. Has yet to improve since joining handicap company earlier this year. Was eighth of nine last time at Ffos Las (1m2f). Has been eased 5lb and down in trip. Others appeal more.

Verdict

DARGEL has been much better since having a wind-op and, as a result, he is now on for a hat-trick here. He was successful over this C&D in impressive fashion last time and he can do the same here despite carrying a 6lb penalty. Universal Effect is another runner who is looking to follow up with a penalty and it is hard to see her not going close, given how impressive she was last time, while Stormbomber has hit the frame on his last two starts and can do so again off the same mark as his recent second place finish over this C&D,
  1. Dargel
  2. Universal Effect
  3. Stormbomber
