6/1

Fair eighth in a 7f handicap here at the end of October. Dropped 3lb for that effort and market support would be notable in what looks a weaker contest.

Run well on both starts since returning from a break most recently when 3L second in a handicap over this trip at Lingfield last weekend. One to note racing off the same mark in this event.

Recorded his third career success when winning by a neck over 6f here on his penultimate start. Disappointed over the same trip at Lingfield at the weekend and looks to have his work cut out back up in trip from a wide draw.

Nine race maiden put in a decent effort when fourth in a 5f handicap at Lingfield two months ago but struggled over the same trip at Southwell later that month. Others hold stronger claims.

Maiden after eight starts and failed to figure when seventh over this trip at Southwell in a novice contest last time out. Hopes appear to rest on the application of blinkers bringing about improvement.

Four time winner and has performed well on each of his last two starts including when 1¼L fourth in a handicap over this trip at Chelmsford last time out. Strong claims racing off the same mark in this contest.

Victorious by a neck over this trip at Chepstow (good) in August. Held on both subsequent starts however and is worth a check in the market on first start since finishing 5¼L sixth over this trip at Wolverhampton in October.

Dual winner over this trip on turf at Lingfield in 2018 but is now on a 14 race losing run. Probably best watched off a mark 4lb lower than for her most recent victory.

Betting

Forecast

Maazel (5/4), Rajman (6/1), N Over J (7/1), Drop Kick Murphi (8/1), Red Cossack (8/1), Geneva Spur (9/1), Elusif (10/1), Bird of Wonder (12/1), Hollander (16/1), Disruptor (20/1), Captain Sedgwick (20/1), Satchville Flyer (20/1), Miaella (20/1), Flying Sakhee (20/1)

Verdict

DROP KICK MURPHI has been running well in recent starts and he can register a fifth career success by taking the opening race on the card. The selection wasn't beaten far over this trip on his most recent start and he can get the better of his rivals here with Maazel, runner-up on his most recent start taken to claim second spot ahead of N Over J who is making his first appearance since changing trainer.
  1. Drop Kick Murphi
  2. Maazel
  3. N Over J
