14/1

More like it when just missing out on making the frame at Nottingham (1m2f; heavy) in a slightly higher grade event. Is capable of winning after a quiet spell, but looks to have place claims at best in this competitive event.

Two-time C&D winner who is just 2lb above his last winning mark. Posted a trio of quiet efforts without being disgraced since his latest win though, and others look better handicapped. Yard/jockey combo are going well though.

C&D winner who tends to run well here. 6lb below his last winning mark, and he has bumped into some vastly better handicapped sorts of late without being disgraced. Vulnerable to those types again in this contest.

Won in similar conditions to what are forecast two starts back when winning comfortably at Salisbury (1m2f; soft). Did have excuses last time when last at that same track when suffering trouble in-running midway through the race. Solid claims.

8/1

C&D winner back in April, but mainly out of form since then. However, although he is still 6lb above his last winning mark, he did show a bit more when fourth at Newbury (1m2f; good) last month. Place claims on that evidence.

Makes belated seasonal debut after 382-day absence. Some eye-catching pieces of form to his name, and he is unexposed. Could be thrown in off a mark of 80 if fit enough to do himself justice. Market check strongly advised.

39-5OR: 79D
3/1

Stepped up on encouraging Newbury (1m1f; soft) third to go two places better and shed his maiden status at the seventh attempt when successful at Sandown (1m2f; good to firm). Up 6lb but seemingly had more in the tank. Could progress further.

Been on the go all year, but has had monthly breaks in between races. Not looked particularly dangerous the last thrice, but he is back down to his last winning mark now. Has form on the forecast slower ground so could run into a place.

58-11OR: 67CD
8/1

This is ninth run of the season, and he took a backward step when last of five at Lingfield (1m3f; good to firm) last month. Only 2lb above last winning mark, and he is a C&D winner so isn't fully dismissed.

Betting

Forecast

Skyman (3/1), Kripke (4/1), Rajinsky (15/2), He's Amazing (8/1), Junoesque (8/1), Medalla De Oro (8/1), Stormingin (10/1), Blistering Bob (12/1), Rotherwick (14/1), Regular Income (14/1)

Verdict

The handicapper knows where he is with the majority of this field, and therefore it seems wise to stick with the unexposed sorts. It is dangerous to write off Blistering Bob, who endured a rough time of things at Salisbury last week. He had produced a career-best previously on his first run at 1m2f. The most intriguing horse in the line-up is Rajinsky who is returning from over a year off the track, but could be dangerously underestimated by the handicapper if fit. However, it is difficult to get away from the pressing claims of SKYMAN who benefitted for the step up to 1m2f when a comfortable winner at Sandown recently, & he can make light work of a 6lb rise.
