9/1

Well beaten 18L last of seven in a C&D handicap last month on his return from a break. Has won over C&D in the past but is probably best watched at present.

Three time winner including over this C&D in August 2017 but has changed stables since finishing runner-up over 1m6f at Catterick (good-to-soft) the following month. Tongue tie tried for the first time on first start in over two years.

Successful three times over 1m2f on the AW at Lingfield last year but has struggled in recent starts including over hurdles the last twice. Others make more appeal on Flat return.

Off the mark at the ninth time of asking when victorious by a head in a 1m4f handicap at Wolverhampton last month. Raised 4lb for that victory and likely more needed if she's to take this event.

Well beaten ninth over 1m3f at Goodwood (good-to-soft) in June on most recent Flat outing and has had two starts over fences without success in the interim period. Others make more appeal at present.

Ran well on her first two starts including when 6¼L to third to subsequent multiple Group 1 winner Star Catcher in a maiden at Newbury (1m2f, soft) in April. One to note on handicap debut despite disappointing over this trip later that month.

Placed off a 4lb higher mark at Newcastle (1m2f) in May last year. Campaigned exclusively over hurdles since joining this yard and is worth a check in the market on Flat return.

Good neck second in a 1m4f novice race at Wolverhampton at the start of July. Well held when sent off favourite on handicap debut over an extended 1m3f at Yarmouth (heavy) in October and tongue tie applied that day is absent in this contest.

Twice a winner on the AW including over this trip at Lingfield in April. Decent 11L fourth on hurdles debut at Wincanton (good) in October and is a notable runner off a mark 3lb higher than for that Lingfield victory.

Struggled in five starts for this trainer including when 16L seventh over 1m6f at Wolverhampton last time out. Worth a check in the market off a mark 8lb lower than when winning over this C&D in April.

Placed on three of his four starts since winning over 1m2f at Doncaster (good-to-firm) in July including when beaten 1L over the same trip at Newcastle last time out. Interesting runner back up in distance.

Multiple winner on turf but has placed just once from 16 AW starts. Well held sixth over this trip at Wolverhampton last month and others hold stronger claims.

Placed third on three of his last four starts most recently when beaten 2½L over 1m3f at Kempton llast month. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and looks likely to run his race once more.

C&D winner and successful twice in May including over this distance at Wolverhampton. Disappointing since however and interesting to see how he fares off a mark 2lb higher than for his most recent success.

Betting

Forecast

Debbonair (3/1), Royal Star (9/2), Cuillin (5/1), Lord Halifax (11/2), Ilhabela Fact (9/1), Torolight (10/1), Cheeky Rascal (16/1), Hackbridge (20/1), Wolfcatcherjack (33/1), New Agenda (33/1), Rail Dancer (33/1), Ravenous (40/1), Jamacho (50/1), Cafe Espresso (100/1)

Verdict

ROYAL STAR looks capable of putting a disapointing latest effort behind her to make a winning handicap debut stepping up in distance. The selection was placed in a good maiden at Newbury in the spring and she can see off her rivals here with Torolight taken to finish runner-up on his return to the Flat. Third place can go to Debbonair who has been running well over shorter in recent starts.
