20:10 Kempton Wed 9 October 2019
Yet to win this year but with two second placed in his last three starts he does look to be coming to the boil off what is an attractive mark. Yet to win over 6f (all wins at 7f) but ought to be able to cope with the drop in distance; leading player.
On a long losing run and little hope could be gleaned from his run at Bath last time where he still looked out of sorts. The cheekpieces worn last time are now swapped for a first-time visor; hard to say that he makes much appeal from a wide berth.
Has a far from enviable strike-rate (1-22) although the sold victory did come over C&D last September. Eased down the weights in handicaps since then she now features on a career-low mark but is still hard to enthuse about; not well drawn.
C&D winner earlier in the year having attracted some support on that occasion (4lb higher here). Got herself back on track after some moderate/modest efforts after that win last time although she's not one to be giving a major chance.
Consistent sort who generally runs well without winning ably demonstrated by the three second place finishes she's gained for this yard. In good form last year (won four handicaps over 5f); ought to able to win off this mark but 0-11 at 6f.
Arrives here in good form but it should be remembered he has a career record that reads 1-23; raced freely when third over 7f here last time. Drop back to 6f may be in his favour if he can settle better; one for consideration if the market speaks.
Still a maiden after 10 starts with her form this year being modest and showing little in the way of progression. Tries the AW for the first-time stepping up in trip (had two previous tries at 6f); gives the trainer a reasonable hand in the race.
Hardly a serial winner and needs few excuses having taken his losing run to 15 last time when finishing a decent second at Chepstow over 6f (travelled well). Often forces the pace, left vulnerable at the finish, place claims again in an open heat.
Travelled with zest to show improved form when getting off the mark on her second start for this yard at Yarmouth (6f, good); making all. Returned to form in first-time eyeshields last time (removed here); likely to run her race again.
Has in the past proved one to take care with but could well be turning the corner having won on the AW (Lingfield) over 6f and run just as well in defeat last time at Wolverhampton, also 6f. Positive signs need to be heeded and not one to dismiss.
Modest if lightly-raced maiden who went backwards from her handicap debut last time out over C&D finishing last having pulled too hard. Hood now makes an appearance as an antidote to those antics but still has plenty to find with the principals.
Hood goes on for his handicap debut having so far shown very little three minor events interspersed with some significant breaks. Hard to make a case for even in this lowly company, can only be watched.
