69-7OR: 65CD
8/1

Returned to form after a quiet spell with a couple of good runs at Bath (5f; firm/good) the last twice finishing second and third respectively. 11lb below last winning mark and looks to have solid place claims.

3/1

C&D scorer back in March. However, form has curtailed since then, and he finished last over C&D most recently. 5lb below last winning mark, but latest signs suggest he is not ready to take advantage of that, and he is readily opposed.

5/1

Turned over at odds-on (10/11f) when last seen at the end of July, but that wasn't a bad run, and it came after an encouraging reappearance effort when he returned from a short absence. Only had four starts in handicaps and could be more to come.

0-9 and dropped a further 2lb for recent third-placed effort at Salisbury (6f; good) last week where he was beaten fair and square. That was a step back in the right direction though, and he is a player if able to build on that.

Still capable of achieving better than he did last time when fourth at Lingfield (6f; good to firm). 8lb below last winning mark and has gone well here before. Wouldn't need to improve massively on recent form, but stable form is worrying.

Not had many runs and starts out for new stable at a very low level, but profile is slightly off-putting and he has failed to improve for the switch to handicaps. Watch market for clues.

Still not fully exposed in the handicap sphere, and there were more promising signs at Bath (5f; firm) last week when she finished third. Goes on AW and has a solid chance, especially if rediscovering form of sole effort over this C&D.

20/1

Well below-par the last twice over C&D, pulling-up, and then beating just the one rival in a nine-runner event. On a career-high mark now, but signs the last twice have been of great concern and he cannot be fancied.

More encouraging signs last time when third over C&D behind Senorita Grande (runs 2.50pm on this card). That came after a string of lesser efforts, and he could go well again off unchanged mark if in the same mood.

16/1

In terrific form before disappointing as favourite (4/1f) when last seen at Wolverhampton (6f; standard) in July. 2lb lower on return from short-break but this previous C&D winner has plenty to prove. Watching brief advised.

Betting

Forecast

Gottardo (3/1), Crackin Dream (5/1), Ricochet (6/1), Split Down South (7/1), Amor Kethley (8/1), Olaudah (8/1), La Fortuna (8/1), Englishman (10/1), Valley Belle (16/1), Sir Hector (20/1)

Verdict

Another tricky puzzle to solve, with Englishman seemingly holding a strong chance after finishing third behind the in-form Senorita Grande who runs in the preceding race. His claims would only be enhanced if that rival runs a respectable race, while La Fortuna is also respected after showing more encouraging signs the las twice and she is not one to dismiss off a dangerously low mark. However, we'll stick with the more appealing profile in the shape of CRACKIN DREAM whose previous two efforts have been by far the standout in his short career so far, and with the promise of more to come as he drops back in trip and is eased in grade, he is a confident pick.
  1. Crackin Dream
  2. Englishman
  3. La Fortuna
