8/1

Improved to win nurseries at Chelmsford and Ffos Las (7½f, good/soft) in August, and back to form when second at former track last time when dropped to a claimer. Been given a chance by the handicapper, and top jockey booked.

Three runs so far have been on a sound surface, shaping well when third of 12 to Hartswood in a 7f novice event at Thirsk last time. Trainer does well with handicap debutants, although testing ground an obvious concern.

Hasn't built on the form of his close third at Leicester in April, going into handicaps off an unreasonably high mark on the balance of hsi form. Been dropped 6lb since nursery bow, but still needs to step up on recent efforts.

Has improved with each start, and just a neck behind King's Charisma when fourth at Thirsk last time, although had the run of things from the front. May lack the scope of that rival, for all he meets him on 1lb better terms.

Showed much-improved form when 6L second of 7 to Max Vega over 1m at Pontefract on easy ground, and that form was franked when the winner landed a Group 3 on Saturday. Obvious claims, although inexperienced rider on board, and a visor is an unknown.

Was looking regressive until stopping the rot in style with a win at Kempton (7f) on final start for Mark Johnston. Matched that when runner-up at Southwell for new yard, but up another 4lb, and yet to prove himself as good on turf.

Won a nursery at Pontefract in July, but has gone off the boil in recent starts in headgear and he was beaten a long way on heavy ground here last time out. Tries a visor and a new trip now.

Badly drawn last time, but had run well to be placed on his first two starts in nurseries at up to 7½f (second to Mac Mccarthy at Ffos Las). Handles cut, and not hard to see him bouncing back from a better draw here.

Yet to build on the promise of her debut third at Lingfield, and needs to improve for blinkers, although booking of champion jockey certainly takes the eye on this nursery bow. Has looked quirky.

28-11OR: 58

Has improved a little for the switch to nurseries, finishing in the frame twice at up to 7½f. Will stay further, and tends to do his best work late, so claims if handling the forecast ground.

Well held in qualifying runs at 5f, but much improved when sprining a shock on nursery debut at Catterick over 7f. Couldn't confirm that improvement next time, however, and looks vulnerable on balance.

Betting

Forecast

Jungle Book (3/1), Bankawi (5/1), Sir Havelock (6/1), Hooroo (6/1), King's Charisma (8/1), Mac Mccarthy (8/1), Richard R H B (10/1), Interrupted Dream (12/1), Ambyfaeirvine (16/1), Sweet Sixteen (16/1), She's A Unicorn (20/1), Clifftop Heaven (20/1)

Verdict

Mac McCarthy beat JUNGLE BOOK comfortably at Ffos Las in August, but the latter did plenty in front there, and can reverse form on 8lb better terms. The selection had excuses from a bad draw last time, and promises to be well suited by heavy ground. Handicap debutant King's Charisma is most interesting of the remainder.
