3/1

Proving consistent at this level winning three of his last five races, comes here seeking a hat-trick having won at Newcastle and Lingfield over 2m trips. First-time on Fibresand, up 4lb for last win; hard to ignore given his recent successes.

Rather in-and-out form over obstacles (offered little over hurdles last time); has recorded 312 form figures on the Fibresand so clearly demands respect back on this surface. Yet to try this trip here; one for the shortlist.

Blinkers go on for the first-time having run well in a first-time visor last time (one of his better performances); remains a maiden, 0-13. Did well enough last time to be given some respect (needs strong gallop); Fibresand form is modest.

Offered little on his return to this yard having been well beaten over hurdles for Paul D'Arcy earlier in the year. Always behind over 2m at Lingfield last time he has plenty of work to do with Steel Helmet; hard to envisage a turnaround.

Beaten in a seller and a claimer over 1m2f he showed far more when second (handicap debut) to Steel Helmet last time at Lingfield (2m). 3lb better off with his conqueror from last time he has a fair chance if he takes to Fibresand; still unexposed.

Offered little up in trip (first-time hood) on stable debut at Redcar (1m6f), off the bridle before most and never dangerous. Sharply dropped another 5lb by the handicapper she still makes limited appeal on her Fibresand debut.

Up in trip and sent handicapping (first-time blinkers) she was never travelling at Windsor returning from a break having made little impact in three minor events. Hard to draw much encouragement from that run; now makes her Fibresand debut.

Little form to speak of with a switch to handicaps last time producing nothing more than he had shown in minor events prior to that run. Now given a try on the AW for the first time; hard to fashion a case on the evidence so far.

Betting

Forecast

Thahab Ifraj (9/4), Beechwood James (3/1), Steel Helmet (3/1), So Hi Cardi (10/1), Forbidding (10/1), Thornton Le Clay (12/1), Breakfast Time (12/1), Tilsworth Sammy (14/1), Mount Cleshar (20/1)

Verdict

Rather like a few other races on the card there isn’t an awful lot of Fibresand form to base calculations on and this will involve some guesswork. BEECHWOOD JAMES looks the best of the three-year-olds having showed improved form last time when taking second at Lingfield over a similar trip. Steel Helmet won that contest but probably had the run of things and the Hannon youngster is taken to reverse the form although neither of them has any Fibresand form. Easily the best form on the surface comes via Thahab Ifraj and he’s respected on the back of that with the blinkered first-time Tilsworth Sammy also throwing his hat in the ring.
  1. Beechwood James
