39-2OR: 62
10/1

Sole win in 23 starts came in a 6f claimer at Maisons-Laffitte (very soft) last October; hasn't shown a great deal to enthuse over since finishing third at Bath (5½f, good to firm) in May.

€70,000 yearling; soundly beaten on both starts to date (6f-7f); worryingly drops into a seller for his third racecourse visit.

With this trainer when finishing a fair fourth (beaten approx 4L) to Almurr at Newbury (6f, good to firm) in July; disappointing elsewhere since - hasn't beaten a single rival in three runs for Charlie Wallis (5f-6f); newly hooded.

Ten-race maiden; beaten 1¾L by Al Suil Eile in a C&D seller (good to firm) on his penultimate start; weakened on heavy ground back here in a stronger contest latest; visor now applied.

Made most when a decisive 4L Pontefract winner on debut (6f, good to firm); has faced sterner opposition since, albeit hasn't progressed; ground an unknown factor dropped into a seller on return from a 374-day absence.

Nine-race maiden; was performing to a broadly similar standard until disappointing (9-2jtf) on the AW at Chelmsford (1m) three weeks ago; finished last of six on sole previous attempt on heavy ground (Carlisle).

9/2

A frustrating maiden (0-11); runner-up on five successive starts between May and July - twice a beaten odds-on favourite; that said, a repeat of his July Lingfield second to Quirky Gertie (7f, soft) could feasibly prove good enough.

Held on well towards the finish when taking a low-grade 6f handicap at Chepstow (soft) in May; well below that form since (0-4), including in a Windsor claimer (1m2f) latest; essentially risky.

Impressive when winning on debut at Carlisle (6f, soft) last September; kicked off the season reasonably well, although has been operating well below par since finishing third to Triple Distilled at York (7f, soft) in July; ease in grade is helpful.

Just held over 1m at Brighton (good to firm) on her penultimate start, although her overall career record (1-15) isn't the most enticing; placed on her sole start with cut in the ground at Newbury (7f, soft) in June.

Nine-race maiden; returns to action from a 129-day absence; one of her better runs came on heavy ground at Ayr (1m) last September when fifth of 11 to Iconic Choice; couldn't be discounted.

Betting

Forecast

Metallic Black (3/1), Voltaic (9/2), Praxidice (6/1), Ventura Glory (13/2), Jean Valjean (8/1), Rosamour (10/1), Champion Brogie (10/1), Breath Of Spring (12/1), Disruptor (14/1), Paddy's Pursuit (16/1), Counterfeit (33/1)

Verdict

An unappealing seller. Metallic Black certainly has the ability to make his mark in this grade, and strictly speaking at the weights should take some beating. However, on heavy ground (prowess is a complete unknown) he can be opposed returning from a 374-day absence. Voltaic is devilishly difficult to win with and has spurned a number of decent opportunities in the past, although he should prove reasonably competitive on ground that he'll handle. Nevertheless, in a race where stakes can only be played at the bare minimum, a slight chance is taken on the soft ground proven, eased-in-grade Karl Burke-trained filly PRAXIDICE.
