22/1

Course regular who followed up a July Redcar win (1m, good) with a gritty short-head success here (7f) last month. Ran well enough when 2¼ lengths fifth of 13 to Tum Tum over 1m here last time, and this is palpably less competitive.

Won back-to-back races at Yarmouth (7f) and Nottingham (1m½f) in June but has paid the price to the handicapper since. Behind Insurplus when seventh to Tum Tum here last time, and no obvious reason why he should turn the tables.

Hasn't got his head in front this season but is in good form at present, and hinted his turn was near when second of 12 to Donnelly's Rainbow at Ayr last time, finishing best. Shortlisted.

Still a maiden, and a bit hit-and-miss, but got back to form when ¾L third of 13 to Hunterwali in a 7f handicap at Chelmsford last time. Every chance if he can build on that.

Won a 6f novice here for George Scott a year ago, but off ten months and well held on debut for new yard at Pontefract last month, leaving himself with something to prove.

Joined current yard from Robert Cowell for 10,000 gns in May, and ran one of his better races when third to Thornaby Nash at Thirsk in June despite hanging. Excuses last time, and well handicapped if he can keep his quirks at bay.

Won at Wolverhampton in June, and had a breathing op after disappointing next time. Ran a cracker to be second to Blindingly over C&D last time, and still unexposed under these conditions.

Won a 7f novice at Wolverhampton in July, and best effort in handicaps when a close third to Ey Up Its Mick at Thirsk last time. Bit more required here, but lightly raced and may improve a little further.

5/1

Best effort when third off 7lb higher over C&D in June. Rather disappointing since, albeit not disgraced, and now tried in blinkers in an attempt to spark a revival.

Betting

Forecast

Al Ozzdi (2/1), Punjab Mail (11/4), Axe Axelrod (5/1), Zoravan (7/1), Fitzrovia (10/1), Insurplus (22/1), Global Exceed (25/1), Primeiro Boy (25/1), Crash Helmet (50/1)

Verdict

AL OZZDI returned from a breathing operation with a career-best second here last time, just failing to get up. He should build on that and is preferred to Zoravan, who is on a good mark, and in form, but not the easiest to win with. Insurplus and Punjab Mail are others to bear in mind.
