Fair fifth in a 1m1f handicap at Redcar (good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares stepping up markedly in distance.

Placed on three of his four starts since winning over 1m1f at Carlisle (heavy) in May. Ran well when runner-up over 1m3f at the same venue last time out and is interesting on just his second start at this trip.

Decent effort in finishing fourth in a 1m2f handicap at Redcar (good) just over two weeks ago. Was a winner over this trip off a 13lb higher mark at Ripon (good-to-firm) in July last year.

Handicap mark is falling following a couple of moderate efforts since returning to the Flat. Rated 15lb lower than when winning over an extended 1m3f at Limerick (good) in June last year.

Victorious over this trip at Hamilton (good-to-firm) on his penultimate start but disappointed off this 3lb higher mark at Beverley (1m4f, good-to-firm) subsequently. Worth a check in the market.

Completed a double when winning on good-to-soft ground over this C&D last time out. Carries a 5lb penalty for that victory and looks likely to play a leading role once more.

Fair effort in finishing 6L sixth in a 1m2f handicap at Redcar (good) at the end of last month. Step up in trip a positive but more needed in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

True Romance (6/4), Near Kettering (9/2), Dew Pond (7/1), Ninepin Bowler (8/1), Majeste (9/1), Ad Libitum (9/1), Beaufort (14/1), Seaborough (16/1), Farhh Away (16/1), Strategic (16/1), Ezzrah (20/1), Half Bolly (25/1), Dr Richard Kimble (33/1), Shakiah (33/1), Bigdabog (50/1)

Verdict

MAJESTE performed has been running well in defeat of late and he can record a third victory of the year by taking the concluding race on the card. The selection has the trip and forecast underfoot conditions and he can get the better of the hat-trick seeking True Romance. Third place can go to Ninepin Bowler who was victorious on his penultimate start.
