Placed in first three so wasn't winning out of turn when scooting clear over 6f at Salisbury last time out after looking the winner a long way out. Return to 7f no issue and will go well if handling softer ground than previously faced.

Runner-up in his first two starts over 6f before winning a 7f novice on good to soft at Chepstow latest where he made all. More to come over the trip and ground conditions should pose no problems so merits serious respect.

Just touched off by Freyja who has won since in her second start before absolutely hosing up as expected as 2/7F over C&D last time out. Yet to race testing ground but shapes as though it should pose no problems.

Ffos Las novice winner was beaten just over 7L into third latest on handicap bow at Kempton on the AW. Must improve here but longer trip and subsequent gelding operation raise possibility of that.

Lone win came over C&D in start number six. Back to back handicap sixths since yet the handicapper has been slow to relent so looks up against it versus less exposed sorts.

Still a maiden although best effort probably came over C&D where he finished second in a handicap. Held since when upped 3lb but gets 1lb of that back now and has handled soft before which few of these can boast.

Not beaten a rival in three starts since his debut and was beaten 16L in handicap debut at Goodwood latest. Makes little appeal here.

Forecast

Lost In Time (8/11), Afraid Of Nothing (4/1), Stoweman (5/1), Light The Fuse (12/1), Nat Love (14/1), Hubert (16/1), Barry Magoo (40/1)

Verdict

This is a pretty warm looking nursery and the top three on the card all step into handicap company for the first time after winning their most recent outings. None did so more impressively than C&D scorer AFRAID OF NOTHING and with earlier form backed up since she makes the most appeal under Oisin Murphy. Lost In Time was very impressive at Salisbury for red-hot Saeed Bin Suroor and Stoweman also won in good style at Chepstow with his handling of likely similar conditions there a feather in the cap.
