In good form this year having taken four races over a variety of trips although the handicapper looks to have caught up with lately, Well below-par on heavy ground at Chester last time; down in trip with blinkers (never won in them) back on.

Took a step back in the right direction on his first run for this yard at Newbury (1m2f) last time (may well appreciate this return to 1m). Yet to win a handicap he has been placed off higher marks than this; would need to build on last effort.

Testing conditions should prove no problem having won last time out (back on her last winning mark) but she does have to now cope with a slightly higher mark. Beaten off such marks in the past; testing conditions may enable her to cope with the mark.

Dual AW claiming winner earlier in the year for his previous yard he ought to be able to cope with the mark and conditions. Usually a prominent racer his last effort in testing ground was a fair one; should be thereabouts in an open contest.

On a very long losing streak and that tempers enthusiasm for his winning chance (just looks a very hard sort to win with). Fourth over C&D last time he could do with some more help from the handicapper; will handle the testing ground.

Best to write-off his last effort (wrong trip, lit-up in first-time visor) but does have a fair losing run to cope. Slipped well down the handicap (last win off 92) but hasn't really grabbed the imagination as one to take advantage.

In fair form since recording the first of his wins this year on the AW at Kempton following up at Newbury again over 1m on easy ground. Back to near his best after a minor blip last time; still fairly treated and one for the shortlist.

Dual C&D winner who has shown some useful form in handicaps of this ilk this year despite only winning once. Looked below form last time over 7f at Sandown on quick ground; may be suited by a return to this course/conditions, not written off.

Appears best caught fresh (his one win this year coming off a seven-month break) when winning at Nottingham (1m, soft). Course winner (6f) who hasn't fared so well since that first outing; others mount more persuasive cases despite a handy mark.

C&D winner here in August under very different conditions (given a more positive ride than usual) off a 2lb lower mark. Modest form since off higher marks and arrives here with something to prove especially on this ground.

Almost back down to the mark from he won off when making his handicap debut on the AW (7f); looked the sort to go on improving but now looks vulnerable to improvers. Last two starts have been well below-par; would need others to falter to score.

Last two starts have left him with plenty of clouds over his chance having produced a poor effort and then followed up with an even worse one last time. Had proved reliable prior to that including when winning over this trip on firm ground at Bath.

Lightly-raced maiden who has joined a good stable; ran an interesting race for them on stable debut when unfancied in the market. Shown promise in the past, spared a hard race at Lingfield (poorly placed), sort to interest if there is a market move.

Forecast

Oloroso (3/1), Medieval (5/1), Secret Return (7/1), George Of Hearts (15/2), I'lletyougonow (10/1), Fortune And Glory (10/1), Leader Writer (11/1), Nightingale Valley (12/1), Los Camachos (18/1), Sir Roderic (20/1), Aussie View (20/1), Scofflaw (25/1), Conspiritor (40/1), Tanqeeb (66/1)

Verdict

As with most handicaps at this time of the year there are plenty that can be given a chance and this contest is no exception. C&D winner Secret Return has to prove she can cope with this mark but ought to relish conditions while consistent sorts like Sir Roderic and Medieval can’t be left out of the equation despite the latter being hard to win with. George Of Hearts took a step forward last time and although he’s yet to win a handicap he shouldn’t be far away here along with Los Camachos. FORTUNE AND GLORY gets the vote overall as he acts well in the conditions and bounced back to form last time. Tanqeeb very much one to watch in the market.
