9/4

Infrequent winner, but has posted a couple of respectable placed efforts of late including when third at Chester (1m2f; good to soft) recently. Can only be recommended as an each-way prospect at best though.

Form of his recent second at Newbury (1m2f; good to firm) would entitle him to go close. However, he seems to have a preference for faster ground so it would be a concern if the ground stayed 'soft'.

Goes on any ground and has been competitive in all of his races this season so far. 9lb below last winning mark. Apprentice jockey offsets valuable 3lb and he holds place claims at the very least.

Must bounce back after disappointing at Newbury (1m2f; good to firm) recently, but did secure a fine success at Yarmouth (1m2f; good to firm) not long ago. Must prove himself on softer ground though.

Good effort in similar conditions to what are expected today when third at Haydock (1m; heavy) two starts ago. Could be open to more improvement stepped up to 1m2f for the first time. Player.

Makes stable debut on the level after a year off from this code. Running over hurdles of late in very weak events and has a lot to prove. Others make far stronger appeal.

Competes off a lowly mark after failing to threaten in six starts this season. Never threatened at Redcar (1m; good) last time, and now steps back up in trip to 1m2f.

Veteran who has been sent off at treble-figure odds on each of his last 15 starts and was tailed off on the flat at Catterick (1m4f; good to firm) last month. Pulled-up over hurdles since at Southwell. Best watched.

Trailed in last of six over C&D two starts ago, but bettered that when third at Leicester (1m; heavy). Now steps back up in trip but conditions likely to suit. 0-4 on turf though.

Betting

Forecast

Dark Devil (9/4), Light Of Air (3/1), Gravity Wave (6/1), Atalanta Queen (6/1), Celtic Artisan (7/1), Elsie Violet (8/1), Dolly Dupree (10/1), Dutch Artist (16/1), Angel Of The North (33/1), Monzino (150/1)

Verdict

Small-stakes advised on what is a tricky final race. The Richard Fahey-trained Dark Devil doesn't win very often but the form of his recent third in a higher grade at Chester reads well in this context, and he holds solid place claims once again. Atalanta Queen is interesting as she steps up to 1m2f for the first time, which could see her show improvement if getting the trip. She ran well in similar conditions to what are forecast when third in heavy ground at Haydock two starts back. DOLLY DUPREE finished last of six when stepped up to 1m2f for the first time two starts ago, but that was on faster ground to what is forecast now, and she has to be worth another chance.
  1. Dolly Dupree
