11/1

Has had four attempts to get off the mark so far without any success. Joined handicap company for the first time on his latest start where he was sixth of 10 at this course over 1m. Has gone down 2lb. Best to watch.

Broke his maiden last time at Kempton (1m) on the AW on his sixth start. Was staying on strongly at the finish so this step up in trip should not be a problem. Has gone up 5lb and blinkers are on for the first time. Big player.

Has been well beaten in all three of her outings to date. She came home sixth on her latest attempt at Thirsk (1m). Should find it easier now she is in handicap company. Interesting at this new distance. One to consider.

Showed some promise on his second start at Wolverhampton (7f) when he was fourth of nine. Since then though, he has got worse on each of his two performances, including last time at Southwell (1m). Needs to improve.

Although she is a maiden after four runs, she has shown some encouragement in those starts. She was fourth of 12 on her latest appearance at Kempton (1m). Is down 1lb in the weights. Has each-way claims here.

Has struggled on her four starts to date. She made her handicap debut last time at Goodwood (1m2f) where she had just one horse behind her in a 10 runner field. Set for her first appearance on the AW here. Others appeal more.

Still looking for her first win after four outings. She was fifth of 12 at Wolverhampton (1m½f) on her first appearance in handicap company. Was prominent last time before weakening 2f out. Down 2lb now. Others are preferred.

Has failed to make an impression in his three starts so far. He failed to beat a single horse last time at Newmarket (7f). Up in trip on his handicap debut. Visor is on for the first time. Will be interesting if there is market support behind him.

Was a long way off last time when she was eighth of 12 on her third racecourse appearance after going off at 100/1. She now joins handicap company which will help, while cheekpieces are on for the first time. Others make more of an appeal though.

Scored at Southwell (1m) on the AW on his handicap debut. Did his best work in the closing stages of his race last time in what was a massive improvement on his opening three performances. One for the shortlist here.

Has had eight opportunities to record his first win but he remains a maiden. He had just one rivals behind him in an 11 runner contest on his latest start at Wolverhampton (7f). Down 4lb but he is hard to fancy.

Has been much better in his last two starts but has yet to hit the frame in seven runs. He was 3L off on his latest outing at Wolverhampton (7f). Down 1lb and is up in trip. Will need to improve.

Betting

Forecast

Souter Johnnie (7/4), Good Reason (9/2), Selsey Sizzler (6/1), My Havana (8/1), Sophar Sogood (10/1), Webuyanyhorse (11/1), Moorland Spirit (14/1), Prestigious (20/1), Wallaby (25/1), Debt Of Honour (25/1), Forus (50/1), Speed Dating (66/1)

Verdict

SOUTER JOHNNIE stayed on strongly last time to get up at Kempton over 1m and this longer trip here should suit him even better so take him to follow up with a second success. Expect much more from Good Reason on her handicap debut over this longer distance than she has been campaigning at, while Sophar Sogood can fill the placings as he looks to follow up from his Southwell victory off this 6lb higher mark.
  1. Souter Johnnie
  2. Good Reason
  3. Sophar Sogood
