9/2

Scored at both Pontefract and Bath last month, but a rise in the weights coincided with defeat when last seen at Brighton (1m4f, good to firm; was hampered) last time. Has to shake that off, but can't rule him out.

Won at Yarmouth in June when with William Haggas and has gone on to complete a hat-trick with two more successes for this trainer, the latest over 1m6f at Lingfield. Conditions are fine, and he has claims up another 4lb.

Has hit form on his last two, winning at both Hamilton (1m, good to firm) and Ayr (1m2f, good to firm). Up another 2lb this time, and also up again in trip, but has questions to answer on this slower ground.

Impressed when making all to score decisively at Musselburgh (1m4f, soft) last time. 6lb rise to overcome, but is improving and is entitled to consideration.

Fourth of 10 on handicap debut at Doncaster (1m4f, good) last month, when behind Funny Man. 11lb better off with that reopposing rival and unexposed. Cheekpieces now fitted and she remains of interest.

Scored in successive handicaps in June, both over 1m. Made the frame from today's mark at Haydock (1m2f, soft) last time. Step up in trip could help him find more. Each-way player.

Yet to get in a serious blow from five attempts, but did better when stepped up to this trip last time out at Thirsk. Cheekpieces now go on, and he is not written off.

Betting

Forecast

Euro Implosion (3/1), Funny Man (4/1), Mister Chiang (9/2), Philonikia (5/1), Potenza (11/2), Five Helmets (6/1), Cuba Ruba (10/1)

Verdict

Mister Chiang had excuses last time, and he could be a major player again here, while Funny Man and Philonikia are others of interest. However, FIVE HELMETS impressed last time, acts on soft ground, and is taken to defy a 6lb rise and follow up.
  1. Five Helmets
  2. Mister Chiang
  3. Funny Man
