- Best Flat Races Live On Racing TV Handicap (Div 1) (Class 5)
- 11 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Multiple winner over 7f/1m, most of them on soft. Last of those came at Ayr in July, when 2lb lower. Has been inconsistent since, but would be a big player if bringing her 'A' game.
Heavy ground winner over 1m last year for Karl Burke, when 15lb higher. On the slide since then, and hard to fancy on recent evidence despite an apparently handy mark.
Goes well on heavy ground. Ran well in a class 2 here last time, when 1lb higher. Opposition here not as strong, and he has claims if he can back up that run.
Dual 6f Hamilton winner (one on good to soft). Has slipped to a handy mark after a lengthy absence. Was held on his first run since then at Newcastle last month. Back up in trip with a bit to prove at present.
Scored at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm; first-time tongue-tie) in April. Beaten at odds-on back there when last seen later that month. Up another 4lb here. Unexposed. Has it to prove on heavy, but can't write him off.
Multiple AW winner who is 0-21 on turf. Without a win since January 2017, and not seen since last December. Will be of greater interest back on AW.
Ran some good races in defeat when with Roger Varian (0-8 for him) and again on her debut for this trainer at Chepstow. 2lb drop should help and she should be capable of going very close.
Multiple winner at up to 1m (inc on soft). 4lb higher than when scoring at Musselburgh in August, and went close off this mark next time. Held last twice, and good pilot up and could bounce back.
Scored at Thirsk (7f, soft) in August, when 5lb lower. Again went close at Hamilton (6f, heavy) last time, when 2lb lower. Unexposed and looks a player again here.
Dual 6f winner here on good ground this season, the latter when 8lb lower. Held in same race as Ey Up Its Mick at Hamilton (heavy) last time, so improvement needed for this return to further.
Off the mark at the 11th attempt at Ayr (7f, soft) last time, when 8lb lower. Handles heavy, and needs to eek out more to win from this mark, but can't be discounted easily.
