25/1

Experienced gelding who was successful at Kempton (7f) back in February. Has been unable to add to his tally since. He was seventh of 16 last time at Chelsmford (1m). Has been eased 3lb but others appeal more.

Remains a maiden after 13 starts. He went close at Nottingham (5f) back in October when he was second of nine. Was well held on his latest effort though at this course (6f). Needs to improve.

7/2

A two-time C&D who often produces her best form at this track. She could only finish fifth of seven over this C&D last time out. The handicapper has eased her 6lb which puts her on a very winnable mark.

Scored on his first appearance for his new yard at Kempton (7f) two starts ago. Went very close to following that up at this course (1m) but he had to settle for second place of nine, beaten by a neck. Remains off the same mark. Big player.

8/1

Has been running consistently well without success recently. He was fancied to go close last time at this course (1m) as he went off as the 7/2 joint-favourite but could only finish fourth of 10. Worth consideration.

10/1

Was a winner at this course back in March but has been unable to add to that in 14 attempts since. He finished seventh of 10 on his last appearance at Wolverhampton (6f). Others make a greater appeal.

Won over this C&D in December 2018. Appeared seven times on the turf at Brighton last year where he scored just once over 7f. He came home 10th of 14 at Brighton (1m) last time he was on the track. Hard to fancy on recent form.

Broke her maiden on her penultimate start at Kempton (7f) in a 12 runner contest. She was not far away last time over that same C&D when she finished fourth of 13. Remains off the same mark. One for the shortlist.

8/1

Scored four times in 2019. His form dipped at the back end of last year, including when he was fifth of 10 last time at Wolverhampton (6f). Is very capable off this latest mark so is one that is worth thinking about.

12/1

Was in good form in January 2019 but he was unable to prevail later in the year. Ran well on his latest appearance when he was third of eight at this course (1m) earlier this month. Others are preferred.

50/1

Lightly-raced gelding who has yet to hit the frame in four starts. He failed to improve on his handicap debut on the AW at Kempton (7f) on his last start as he finished ninth of 12. Difficult to fancy.

79-3OR: 61

All three of her wins have come on turf. She has struggled to transfer her form across to this surface. Had to settle for sixth place of eight on her latest effort at Southwell (6f). Needs to improve.

10/1

Yet to score in eight attempts. He has hit the frame on a number of occasions though. He was fourth of nine at this course (1m) on his latest effort. Has been eased 3lb and blinkers are on for the first time. Not one to ignore.

Betting

Forecast

Holiday Magic (3/1), First Link (7/2), Violet's Lads (7/1), The Groove (8/1), Gottardo (8/1), Fortissimo (10/1), Kraka (10/1), Mr Mac (12/1), Hieronymus (20/1), Fuwairt (25/1), Napping (50/1), Free Gift (50/1), Wilson (66/1)

Verdict

HOLIDAY MAGIC has been in great form recently with a success at Kempton and a close second place finish here. He is the one they all have to beat from the same mark as his near miss last time out. First Link has been given a great chance her by the handicapper and must always be respected at this course as all three of her wins have come here, while Violet's Lads has produced two good performances at Kempton recently and can finish in the frame on her switch to this course.
  1. Holiday Magic
  2. First Link
  3. Violet's Lads
