49-9OR: 77BFCD
7/2

Boasts a 5-22 AW record but his form has been mixed of late and he was a disappointing favourite at Wolverhampton two weeks ago. However, he goes well here and is 4-6 in this grade so no surprise should he bounce back.

No match for a big improver at Kempton but signalled a return to form coinciding with her mark dropping into her optimum range of 75-76. One for the shortlist.

Got stuck in the Brighton mud last time but at least his mark has dropped a couple of pounds as a result. Needs to improve on a poor AW record.

Lightly raced and has been improving this autumn. Off the mark at Wolverhampton before coming out third best in a driving finish there on his handicap debut. Has more to offer and should be thereabouts once more.

Finished just ahead of Ropey Guest at Wolverhampton but disappointed there two weeks ago when cheekpieces were applied. Those aids are dispensed with but others look better handicapped.

Resumed winning ways at Bath in slightly easier company over 5f in August but doing so in decisive fashion. Both subsequent efforts have proved to be below that level; found wanting close home last time; consistent AW sort, twice placed here.

Registered a fourth Tapeta success last time when dropped back into this grade. Showed a good burst of speed to win with something in hand so a 2lb rise appears generous. Has run well on Polytrack so hard to discount.

Losing streak stretches back to July 2018 and hasn't troubled the judge since.. Has run well here in the past and has the draw to exploit a good handicap mark, however she has had problems in the stalls on her last two visits to the track.

Won a class 6 over C&D in February and form has been mixed since. Has been absent since a poor run in July and may just need this.

Landed back to back races in 2018 over 6f. Back from more than a year on the sidelines and fully entitled to need the run.

All three handicap wins have come in lower grade races and he has struggled at this level since scoring at Ffos Las in August.

Betting

Forecast

Joegogo (7/2), Spirited Guest (9/2), Tathmeen (9/2), Kodiac Express (7/1), Three Little Birds (7/1), Show Me The Bubbly (8/1), Shining (8/1), Harrogate (14/1), Brandy Station (16/1), Time To Reason (20/1), Nampara (25/1)

Verdict

Tathmeen has escaped lightly with just a 2lb rise for his latest success and he is well drawn, but topweight JOEGOGO has dropped to an attractive mark and an impressive strike rate in this grade earns him the vote. Shining was unlucky to bump into an improver last time and the third ran well on Tuesday, whilst Three Little Birds and Kodiac Express have run well here in the past. Spirited Guest is lightly raced and open to improvement and should at least reverse recent Wolverhampton placings with Show Me The Bubbly.
