7/2

C&D winner who is on a dangerous mark but losing sequence is mounting up and his lack of consistency in recent times has to be a concern.

Well beaten in all three previous runs and doesn't look particularly well treated for her handicap debut; others more appealing this time despite the yard being back among the winners.

C&D winner last November but disappointing twice since; still reasonably well handicapped, though. Needs to bounce back from a couple of poor displays but not unfeasible to think he can at least make the frame in this company.

C&D winner from a 3lb lower mark on his penultimate start but couldn't get on terms over 1m2f back here when last seen out. The drop in distance is in his favour and no surprise if he's thereabouts again.

The return to 1m will suit and the gelding is 3lb better off with Sharp Operator after their encounter here last November. Not much to find and is 2lb below his last winning mark, too. Worth consideration.

8/1

Unexposed four-year-old who debuts in a handicap after a much improved effort at Wolverhampton last month (was hampered early on but ran on well near the finish that day). Likely there's more to come and is another to seriously bear in mind.

On a long losing run and so far been unable to make the most of a plummeting handicap mark; one of his career wins came over C&D when with Rae Guest but recent form and a wide draw conspire against him once more.

Has some decent form over 7f but has never really shone when tried over a mile before now; all three previous career wins gained at Kempton but well held in both previous visits to this particular course.

10/1

From in handicaps has been nothing special so far and the gelding needs to have been revitalised by last month's appointment for wind surgery if he's going to have a big say here. (Best effort to date came over 7f, so there's a stamina query too.)

33/1

Finished third in a similar race over C&D in November but her form has dipped significantly since then and it's hard to envisage she'll be good enough to rid herself of the maiden tag (0-24) on recent evidence; others much more appealing.

Betting

Forecast

Chetan (7/2), Caribbean Spring (4/1), Elusif (5/1), Caledonia Laird (6/1), The Eagle's Nest (6/1), Duke Debonair (8/1), Rifft (10/1), Arlecchino's Leap (10/1), Sharp Operator (14/1), Laurentia (25/1), Margaret J (33/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken that the well handicapped CARIBBEAN SPRING can reverse recent form with Sharp Operator and he looks a sporting bet in an open handicap. Duke Debonair debuts in a race of this nature after a promising effort in a novice auction last time out and is shortlisted as one of the main dangers to the selection, while Elusif has a reasonable chance on the pick of his form but needs to prove he can reproduce the goods away from his beloved Kempton. Caledonia Laird completes the shortlist.
  1. Caribbean Spring
  2. Duke Debonair
  3. Sharp Operator
