Placed twice over 7f on the AW late last year. Struggled in both starts in handicaps however and is probably best watched on turf and stable debut.

Good third in a 7f novice event at Newcastle when debuting in March. Well below that form in two subsequent starts however and drops back in trip on handicap debut following a heavy defeat over 1m2f in April.

Verdict

Top weight ALOTABOTTLE has been in great form since joining thi syard and he can complete a hat-trick with victory in this competitive three-year-old handicap. The selection has the trip and forecast underfoot conditions in his favour and he can get the better of Abie's Hollow who ran in finishing third over further last time out. Third place can go to Dream of Honour who is making his first handicap start of the year.
