11/4

Progressed with every run this season, winning snugly at Yarmouth in July before running respectably to finish second off current mark at that track (1m3f) last time out. Back down in trip and should have more to offer again.

Flattering second on racecourse debut and failed to land a blow since. Latest 15L sixth in 1m Pontefract novice means much more is needed. First try at 1m2f.

Inconsistent sort. Ran well to finish third at Haydock on penultimate start but flopped badly in 1m2f Newmarket handicap last time out. A bit to prove but dropped 3lb in the handicap for this.

Change of tactics proved to fruitful when making all to win 1m2f Chelmsford handicap by a neck last month. Cheekpieces helped that day and still remains unexposed compared to others. Likely to force the pace.

Has a fine record at this track and showed likeable improvement to land C&D handicap in some style on latest start. 4lb worse off for this but has the scope to improve once again.

Took advantage of drop in weights and trip when scoring stylishly at Carlisle (1m) last month. 6lb hike suggest handicapper is taking no chances but shaped as if this trip should suit. Considered.

Betting

Forecast

Isle of Wolves (9/4), Knowing (11/4), Sootability (3/1), Guildhall (5/1), The Dancing Poet (10/1), Gazton (25/1)

Verdict

A trappy-looking handicap, preference is for ISLE OF WOLVES who scorched clear over C&D last time out and now looks to be getting the hang of things for an in-form yard. He's likely to need a strong pace, which looks to be set by The Dancing Poet on the basis of his last run, and his main rival looks to be the consistent Knowing, who may have been given a chance by the handicapper to get back to winning ways. Sootability is likely to be thereabouts but she is unproven at this trip, which is a concern.
  1. Isle of Wolves
