Has won a couple of times on AW but only has one win from eight starts on turf. A shade too keen early at Kempton last time out but interesting on return here for a new yard; unproven on good to firm.

Won a race at Kempton for Roger Charlton but well beaten in three starts for this yard (two over hurdles) and plenty to prove at present.

Recorded a hat-trick earlier in the campaign, two wins on AW and a Redcar win when stepped up to 2m for the first time. Handicapper appears to have caught up with him since though; first-time visor on.

Gained a second career victory at the 15th attempt at Haydock last month but not as effective from his revised mark at Carlisle last time out when dropped to 1m6f May not have seen the best of him yet and a return to a flat track should help.

Kept busy last year, winning four times and kept on well to win at Ayr on return. Subsequent run here was disappointing though and failed to beat a rival home over hurdles last time. Needs more from this career high mark.

Arrives here bidding for a four-timer having improved markedly for the step up in trip and switch to handicaps this season. 5lb rise for his latest effort looks fair and a return to fast ground is a potential source of improvement.

All five of his wins since 2016 have come at 1m6f. Has just one win this year, and struggling for form of late. More needed and a bit to prove at this trip.

Belatedly lost his maiden tag at Pontefract last time out but that didn't look like a particularly strong event and he has more on his plate here from 2lb higher in the handicap.

Recorded a hat-trick this summer and only narrowly denied at Redcar last time out. Well worth a crack at this longer trip and worth respecting for a yard in form, despite a 3lb rise for not winning last time.

Her only wins on the Flat have come on AW but she ran well in a strong C&D event here in June. Likely to have one in her from this sort of mark and should get a decent pace to aim at.

Only has one win since a hurdles success in 2016 and that came at Catterick at 1m4f. Hinted at a return to form last time in first-time headgear (retained) and feasibly handicapped, though this is clearly tougher.

Won a selling handicap for Mick Appleby but only fourth on debut for his new yard and this is a tough ask from 2lb out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Platform Nineteen (2/1), Funny Man (10/3), Maid In Manhattan (7/2), Contrebasse (6/1), Sassie (7/1), Forewarning (8/1), Echo (16/1), Shine Baby Shine (16/1), Buyer Beware (25/1), The Resdev Way (33/1), Ezanak (40/1), Trautmann (40/1), Petitioner (50/1)

Verdict

PLATFORM NINETEEN may be capable of defying a 5lb rise from the handicapper with a return to quicker ground likely to suit. Funny Man is a potential improver up in trip for a yard in form while Shine Baby Shine is interesting if she can repeat her C&D effort earlier in the season when a close up fourth.
