Signs of a return to form when a more encouraging fourth at Newcastle (2m; standard) most recently. One of a number in this race who are dropping in class. Last win on the AW came here in March 2018. Concedes weight all round though.

Has had a successful year rising 16lb in the handicap. Progress hasn't stalled completely, and his latest effort at York (2m; good) can be forgiven. This represents a drop in class which should enable him to fare more competitively.

Only had the three starts this season, and is 3lb better off with Tigray after he finished fourth behind that rival over C&D recently. However, form of the stable is a slight concern (0-19 in past 14 days).

Bumped into one over C&D in September, and wasn't completely disgraced in a better race at Wolverhampton (2m; standard) last time when fourth. Still 5lb above last winning mark which came over 1m4f here in April. Should be thereabouts once more.

Posted another respectable effort when third at Musselburgh (2m; soft) in what was a competitive event. Not disgraced in slightly higher class races throughout this year either, so brings a good level of form into this. Highly respected.

Makes comeback after 506 days off the track. Not tasted success since winning at Chelmsford (2m; standard) back in December 2017, but he is well treated off a 4lb lower mark. Struggling for form when last seen though.

Finally got off the mark at the sixth attempt when successful over 1m6f at this track last time out. Shaped as though the step up to 2m would suit, and he is unexposed. Major player off a 5lb higher mark.

Bounced back to form over C&D when runner-up last time out. Still 4lb above last winning mark which came over this C&D back in January 2018. Latest effort suggests she is returning to form, which gives her place claims.

Betting

Forecast

Wadacre Galoubet (9/4), Tigray (3/1), Shine Baby Shine (7/1), Pumblechook (7/1), Bodacious Name (15/2), Echo (8/1), The Resdev Way (22/1), Caged Lightning (25/1)

Verdict

The handicapper looks to have him just about where he wants him, but it would be a surprise if Echo weren't good enough to finish in the money in this contest after he wasn't disgraced when finding the demands of a typically competitive handicap at York too much for him recently. Bodacious Name also has some decent form to his name, and produced an encouraging display when third at Musselburgh last time out so should also be bang there. He is not open to as much improvement as WADACRE GALOUBET though, who benefitted for the step up to 1m6f when successful here last time out. He should improve once more for the step up to 2m, and can continue rising up the handicap.
