20/1

Winner over this trip in May off a 4lb lower mark but has run two poor races since over similar trips; looked unsuited by the track at Chester, finished tamely last time. Cheekpieces now go back on (placed in them last year); others appeal more.

9/4

Showed promise on her last start as well as some wayward tendencies (pulled hard) when finishing second over this trip at Wolverhampton. That run was a further step back in the right direction (travels well), looks capable off this mark.

Two best runs have come on soft ground (including a win on debut); also shaped better than distance he was beaten on penultimate start on heavy ground at Haydock. Too free back on the AW last time; eased again in the weights (needs to settle).

Badly hampered early on last time a line can be put through that run; better judged on his Kempton 6f win (second start for this yard). Just 2lb higher than for his last win and up to 7f for the first time for this yard; wide draw unhelpful.

11/4

Handicap newcomer; starts life in the sphere on what looks to be a fair mark with the trainer having a near 20% strike-rate with his 3yo handicap debutantes. Ran her best race last time (AW debut) over this trip; fair chance of opening her account.

Had far more chances than most in this field; 0-12 so far having not beaten one home in her last three starts (two of those runs in Listed company). Back in handicaps and headgear last time, still out of sorts, others more persuasive.

10/3

Yet to really fire this year and ran far too free in first-time blinkers over 1m at Chelmsford last time (found that test too much). Will appreciate the drop back to 7f, way below his last winning mark if he does manage to find his spark.

38-2OR: 55
16/1

Pulled up last time at Brighton (1m) with a tack problem but his form overall is only modest. First-time blinkers used last time disappear here as he continues to run off a reduced mark; hard to envisage him making much of an impact.

Betting

Forecast

Excelled (9/4), Visionara (11/4), Indian Sounds (10/3), Red Bravo (6/1), Powerful Star (10/1), Cromwell (16/1), Mendoza (16/1), Kwela (20/1), Lady Cosette (33/1)

Verdict

Simon Crisford is an excellent placer of his horses with a near 20% strike rate with his handicap debutantes of this age and that alone gives VISIONARA a good chance of landing this after she was beaten less than a length in novice company last time. Excelled took second place at Wolverhampton last time after a troubled passage and it may well be that she has to settle for the same position here. Indian Sounds is very well handicapped if he can find his juvenile form with Red Bravo another looking to exploit a decent mark if he can settle better this time around.
