7/2

Course winner who had been in some sort of form before below par efforts the last twice, including over C&D latest. Headgear is left off this time.

On a barren spell of things currently and didn't look like stopping with heavy defeat at Ayr (1m) last week. Headgear retained in a bid to find sparkle.

Had a productive Spring, including victory over 1m1f here but returned from break with poor ninth at Epsom (1m) on last start. Entitled to come on for that however.

7/2

Winner over 7f at this track this season and bounced back to form with success in 1m Ayr handicap last week. Raised 4lb but should give another bold account.

C&D winner on penultimate start then victorious at this track over 7f last time out. Remains well-treated despite hefty hike and leading contender for the hat-trick.

Course winner in the past but below par recently at Catterick (1m) and is an unreliable sort. Opposable.

Course winner but on a long losing streak recently. Did far better than the result suggested when fifth in 7f handicap here last time but tough ask from out of the handicap.

On a torrid run of form recently and beat only two home at Carlisle (1m) on latest start. Hard to fancy from 6lb out of the handicap.

Modest record of 1-21 but shaped encouragingly when fifth over C&D last month. More needed from out of the handicap though.

Betting

Forecast

Vive La Difference (2/1), How Bizarre (7/2), Donnelly's Rainbow (7/2), Home Before Dusk (9/2), Lagenda (5/1), Whatwouldyouknow (7/1), La Sioux (16/1), Robben Rainbow (22/1), Let Right Be Done (25/1), Princess Florence (33/1), Haymarket (50/1)

Verdict

DONNELLY’S RAINBOW has generally been in good form and the manner of his victory at Ayr’s Western Meeting earlier this month suggests the weight rise should be of no issue for this gelding. Lagenda sets the form standard but the 6lb penalty he incurs for his last victory suggests the handicapper may have his measure and is off-putting, while the likes of La Sioux are entitled to come on for her recent effort and How Bizarre may be fresher without the headgear on.
