Below form on both starts since joining current yard from Archie Watson, most recently in a claimer. Claims if he can find his old form, but still a maiden, and beginning to look regressive.

Has kept progressing since winning at Chepstow in June, and only collared late when runner-up to Gylo at Beverley last time. Yard remains in form, and he has leading claims after going up just 1lb.

Won off 1lb lower at Ayr in July, but hasn't run to the same level in three subsequent starts, albeit not getting much luck in running behind Hammy End at Beverley last time. Will do well to overturn that form.

Best effort to date when fifth of 13 to Empire Line in a 7f maiden at Dundalk in February, but left Joseph O'Brien after that effort, and has been well held in two starts for current yard, the latest his handicap bow at Nottingham.

Best efforts of late have come over 1¼m at Beverley, finishing second in July, and beating Kodi Koh there last time. May well do better, so shortlisted with cheekpieces he wore last time retained.

Got a bit closer when fourth of 14 at Lingfield on his penultimate start (tongue tied for first time), but couldn't maintain that progress on AW at Chelmsford last time, and looks to have something to find on balance.

Ran much his best race when third in a heavy-ground C&D handicap two starts back, but rather disappointing to see him make no impact at Ffos Las last time, for all that run may have come soon enough. Needs to bounce back.

Improved form when second in a 1m handicap here a couple of runs back, and seemed to stay 1¼m when a close fourth in a Ripon seller last time. May do better at this trip, but that wasn't much of a contest in truth.

Has struggled to make any impact in varied company, and not hard to oppose her now stepping up markedly in trip.

Not entirely disgraced at Catterick in June, but exposed as a poor maiden, and she has been well held the last twice. Makes very little appeal from out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Hammy End (5/2), Brutalab (5/2), Half Bolly (6/1), Somewhat Sisyphean (7/1), Neileta (10/1), Alpasu (12/1), Feebi (14/1), Smashing Lass (16/1), Asensio (16/1), Holy Hymn (20/1), Laura Louise (33/1)

Verdict

A weak affair, and while a pretty strong case can be made for Brutalab after winning at Beverley last time, HAMMY END posted a better effort in defeat there on his latest outing, and shades the verdict with his yard continuing in good form. Somewhat Sisyphean improved when placed over C&D last time, and is unexposed as a stayer, so is also worthy of consideration.
