AW maiden (0-6); badly out of form since finishing a short-head second to Breaking Records over 7f here last November; is now rated 8lb lower and must revive.

6f Lingfield maiden winner; slowly away and always firmly up against it on return from a nine-month absence at Laytown (6f) 13 days ago; back on a more conventional racing surface.

Blew the start when seeking a hat-trick on Tapeta at Dunstall Park Wolverhampton six weeks ago; has won at this track in the past (April 2019) - a notable 16lb higher here.

Yet to build upon the promise he demonstrated as a juvenile; was hindered by a slow start when a beaten 4-5f at Pontefract (5f, good to firm) in July; cheekpieces are enlisted; with a fast pace likely can't be dismissed.

2lb higher than when beating today's rival Desert Fox by ½L over C&D in August; those placings were reversed in no uncertain terms on his very next start.

Beat the re-opposing Kraka by a neck when a determined C&D winner in March; just 1lb higher here and gelded since flopping at Epsom (6f, good to firm) 75 days ago.

Difficult to win with (2-30) and his form dipped after a consistent spell between February and April (has previous with Real Estate); offered more encouragement when a pleasing fourth (now 2lb better off) to Desert Fox latest.

Four-time C&D winner; has only inched up the weights in recent weeks despite positive form figures of 2,1; holds every chance in recommencing battle with old foes Creek Harbour and Kraka.

Improving steadily with racing during the second half of the summer; has raced towards the fore in recording back-to-back wins at Bath (5½f maiden) and Salisbury (6f, Cl 6); 8lb higher, yet still only rated 70; surely in the mix.

Set some strong early fractions when an all the way winner at Redcar (6f, good to firm) four weeks ago; 7lb higher racing from a wide draw, and with competition for the lead from Grisons; is still respected.

No win since January 2016 (when trained by the master of Kingsley House Mark Johnston); easing in the weights, and was placed following his traditional tardy start at Wolverhampton (6f) 53 days ago; will appreciate the fast early pace.

Betting

Forecast

Desert Fox (2/1), Grisons (4/1), Creek Harbour (8/1), Black Isle Boy (8/1), Fairy Fast (8/1), Fantastic Flyer (10/1), Kraka (12/1), Real Estate (14/1), Kingsley Klarion (14/1), Dahik (14/1), Three Card Trick (16/1), Broughtons Flare (20/1), Wotadoll (25/1), Faraasah (40/1)

Verdict

A competitive and difficult to solve sprint. One factor which is guaranteed is a searching early pace, with the back to form Kraka and Dahik likely to scrap for the lead along with the upwardly mobile three-year-old Grisons. With this in mind, the suggested safe approach is to seek some each-way value with a couple of habitual dwellers, namely the difficult to win with Kingsley Klarion and the once moderately useful juvenile THREE CARD TRICK. The hope is that the Kevin Ryan-trained selection will be reinvigorated by the application of first-time cheekpieces, allowing him to adopt a slightly more manageable early racing position.
