69-11OR: 96D
4/1

Three-time winner in France who has been tried in higher company since switching to this yard. Ran too freely when 3L eighth over 1m2f at Lingfield last month and could be suited by drop in trip. Place claims.

5/1

C&D winner last winter and had generally been running well of his marks before tame last of 10 over 7f here last month. That may have-been a one off and considered on previous form.

14/1

11-time winner who is on a 21-run losing streak at the moment. Posting some solid efforts recently however and fared better than the result suggested when beaten 3L at Lingfield (6f) last time. 7f may just be stretch however.

40/1

In solid form during 2018 but not the same level last year and was only one place ahead of Pinnata when ninth over 7f here last time out. Dropped 5lb but needs a step back in the right direction.

8/1

Dual winner in the spring of 2019 but form rapidly deteriorated afterwards, including latest 15th of 24 at Ayr (6f) in September. Not seen since and best watched on current form run.

2/1

Has a bit of class about him and remained unbeaten in his career (and at this track) when game winner over 6f here last month. Looks ready for the step up to 7f and could be a group horse in waiting.

Generally held his form well after success on debut and was last seen finishing 3L third in informative Newmarket nursery (7f) in October 2018. Absent and gelded since but yard can ready one off mammoth absences.

16/1

Winner over 1m here in February 2019 but not the same form since. Latest 13th of 14 in 1m handicap here - beaten 55L - in October leaves a lot to be desired at the moment.

7/1

Well-beaten in the Cambridgeshire when returning from enforced break and raced too freely when ninth over C&D last time out. Others looks to have more class and are preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Brushwork (2/1), Glen Shiel (4/1), Pinnata (5/1), Little Jo (7/1), Rathbone (8/1), Baronial Pride (14/1), Intisaab (14/1), Helovaplan (16/1), Muntadab (40/1)

Verdict

BRUSHWORK has exclusively raced over 6f at this venue so far in his career and has arguably improved with racing. Despite the narrow margin of his victory last time he showed a game attitude and looks ready for this trip His stamina should last and could be a horse to follow throughout 2020. Glen Shiel has to give weight all-round but his form has been solid throughout and takes a drop in class for this, while the likes of the returning Baronial Pride had good form and may be fine-tuned for his return and Pinnata can be forgiven for his previous no-show.
