Hasn't won in recent times and was turned over at odds of Evens-fav at Nottingham (5f, good) last month. However, he has a handy inside draw and that Nottingham form has been boosted since by both the winner and the second.

Ex French; made all to score on stable debut in a Redcar novice (6f) last September; weakened on belated seasonal/handicap bow at Doncaster (6f) last month; remains unexposed dropping back in trip.

Continues to knock at the door without quite forcing a winning opportunity; no match for Move In Time (a 3½L winner) in the Chaplins Club handicap at Pontefract (5f, good) last week.

Dangerously handicapped at his best and is effective over both 5f and 6f; below-par in his most recent outings and is drawn wide in stall 14; stablemate of Desert Ace.

Rattled off a hat-trick of wins in 5f and 6f handicaps last August and would be unhindered by the forecast showers; hampered at the start when third to Moonlit Sands at Carlisle (5f, good to soft) ten days ago; his time of the year?

Fibresand specialist so his trainer will undoubtedly have a close eye upon the fast approaching new season at Southwell; last of seven to Dapper Man on return from a break at Chelmsford (5f) in early July.

4lb higher than when winning at Doncaster (5f, good) last month - offset by the 5lb claim of Harrison Shaw; close fifth to Arnold in this contest in 2018; well drawn in the inside berth.

Overcame a tardy start to score at Carlisle (5f, good to soft) recently, accounting for both Guardia Svizzera (third) and Suitcase 'N' Taxi (fourth); carries a 5lb penalty; 2lb lower than when winning a C&D seller in May 2018.

No win since July 2018 and has fallen to a 16lb lower mark; showed early pace when fourth to Moonlit Sands (Guardia Svizzera third) at Carlisle latest; is versatile in terms of trip and ground; stablemate of East Street Revue; very tough draw.

19-race turf maiden; never constructively involved at Pontefract latest; could prove capable of winning off this kind of mark once reverting to the Tapeta at Gosforth Park, Newcastle.

Betting

Forecast

Sheepscar Lad (11/4), Suwaan (4/1), Guardia Svizzera (13/2), Point Of Woods (9/1), East Street Revue (10/1), Arnold (10/1), Prestbury Park (11/1), Young Tiger (11/1), Atyaaf (12/1), Burtonwood (14/1), Desert Ace (16/1), Moonlit Sands (20/1), Suitcase 'n' Taxi (22/1), Mambila (25/1), Warrior's Valley (25/1)

Verdict

A very competitive sprint handicap. Like so many of those declared Beverley is a happy stomping ground for the Ann Duffield-trained Arnold. He took this race from an identical mark in 2018. Burtonwood went down to an in-form rival over C&D latest and is worthy of a positive mention from just a 1lb higher mark while the likes of Moonlit Sands, Guardia Svizzera and Suitcase 'N' Taxi are closely matched on recent Carlisle form. However, although beaten at short odds at Nottingham recently, the form of the well-drawn SHEEPSCAR LAD appears strong with hindsight given the subsequent victories for the winner Grandfather Tom and the second Move In Time.
