6/1

Caused a 33-1 surprise when winning over 7f at this track back in September. 6lb rise for that victory has proved insurmountable in two subsequent starts. Only 2lb above it now though, given the manner of recent performances. Dangerous to dismiss.

Finished third on handicap debut at Kempton (7f; standard to slow). Ran well over 7f at this track on her second ever start. Step up to 1m should see her show further improvement, and she is a leading candidate.

Difficult to envisage him making much of an impact after making minimal impact in any of his three starts to date. Will need to step up significantly on this handicap debut, and others look more convincing.

Goes up to 1m now after finishing sixth over 7f here when last seen. Has only finished in midfield on each of his three starts since switched to handicaps, so needs to find improvement from somewhere.

Got off the mark at the 11th attempt when staying on late in the day to mow down the front-running Never Said Nothing at Southwell (1m; standard) just nine days ago. 5lb higher, but this looks an open race so he has claims.

Is a bit of an inconsistent type, as shown when finishing eighth at Wolverhampton (7f; standard) after shedding maiden tag over the same C&D the time before. On a 5lb higher mark now though, and others look more appealing.

Will need to better what he has shown so far. However, he wasn't disgraced when sixth over 7f at this track last month. Steps back up to 1m, and holds place claims if able to build upon that recent run.

Produced a pair of much more encouraging efforts since switched to handicaps. Took another step forward when placed at Wolverhampton (1m; standard) last time out. Holds solid claims in what appears to be an open race.

Forecast

Secret Diary (2/1), Fair Warning (11/2), Dazzling Darren (11/2), Constitutional (6/1), Pearl Stream (13/2), Gracie's Girl (7/1), Speed Dating (15/2), Schumli (22/1), Copperlight (28/1)

Verdict

After showing improved form on her handicap debut at Kempton just over two weeks ago, SECRET DIARY can get off the mark at the fourth attempt as she steps up to 1m for the first time. She has already shown a liking for this track, and looks the most likely winner in a race full of unpredictable types. Things seemed to click when Speed Dating gained a first career success recently when mowing his opposition down late on, and he looks next best off a 5lb higher mark. Dazzling Darren looks sure to be winning races soon enough, but he can be considered for a place after he progressed from his handicap debut to finish third last time out.
