39-7OR: 82
7/2

Has been a revelation since switched to AW, winning back-to-back races at Southwell prior to his hat-trick success at Wolverhampton last time out. Freshened up since and may yet have more to give.

Just a maiden win on turf to his name to date and doesn't look particularly well-handicapped on his subsequent efforts, particularly those on AW; opposable from the same mark here.

9/4

Had been running well in defeat prior to bolting up at Lingfield last time out when making all in good fashion. Has a 6lb penalty to carry but due to go up another 2lb so technically well in here and worthy of respect having run well here before.

9/1

Has shown promise in each of her three AW starts to date but the handicapper hasn't taken any chance with his opening handicap mark. Yard enjoying an excellent winter on AW and he's not one to rule out.

Got her head back in front on debut for this yard at Kempton last time out and she's an intriguing sole runner on the card for her top Irish yard here. Up 5lb for the latest success but the runner-up hasn't done the form any favours.

Betting

Forecast

Bella Brazil (9/4), Bendy Spirit (9/4), Dark Regard (7/2), Winning Streak (13/2), Ayr Harbour (9/1)

Verdict

Several could be in front of the handicapper here and none more so than BENDY SPIRIT who carries a penalty and is due to go up further when the assessor has his say following a wide margin success at Lingfield last time out. Dark Regard rates as an obvious danger in her bid for a four-timer having held on well on Tapeta last time out. Bella Brazil ought to carry on improving for Jessica Harrington's yard.
