11-time winner at the track the gelding has won on five occasions over C&D from 18 starts including two victories in 2019. Could be a lively outsider now 1lb lower than last winning mark.

Not won for three years with the Dandy Man gelding still looking for a first victory over C&D in four starts. Not disgraced in a couple of runs over the combination since November and could go well at a price.

Yet to hit the frame in five starts at this venue but the Majestic Missile gelding has run well in defeat in a couple of starts over C&D in November/December. Well held over 5f here earlier this month but more to offer back at this trip.

Well beaten and never a factor over 5f earlier this month but can build on a solid run over C&D in November finishing third of 14 beaten a neck by Dash D'or. Lively outsider.

Winner over C&D with a place effort to boot from six starts over the combination. Entitled to have designs on prize money in this company.

Winner of three of his 27 starts at this venue but the Dandy Man gelding has been out of luck in six runs over C&D. Remains easy to oppose.

Winner of five of his 38 Flat starts in his career but the Bated Breath gelding has not been seen since finishing down the field in September. Profile suggests he is worth taking on again.

Three-time winner at the track the daughter of Dandy Man appears to be struggling of late. More needed with a couple of better handicapped sorts lurking.

Landed a shock at the first meeting of the meeting of the year at this venue when landing the odds at 33/1 over 5foff a 14lb lower mark. Not disgraced since and another bold show stepping up in trip likely.

Solid and consistent sort in a number of starts over 6f/7f since November without getting his head in front. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

Betting

Forecast

Arcanears (11/8), Tommy Taylor (5/2), Nigg Bay (8/1), Red Cymbal (11/1), Sabrina Fairchild (12/1), Early Call (14/1), Fit For Function (16/1), Mr Scarlet (16/1), Highly Approved (18/1), Hit The Silk (20/1), Togoville (20/1), Annabelle Rock (20/1), Shore Step (25/1), Plough Boy (33/1), No Nay Yellow (33/1), Super Julius (66/1), The Feathered Nest (66/1)

Verdict

The former Kevin Ryan-trained TOMMY TAYLOR took to the surface well last month on stable debut running Yuften to 2¾L in a 12 runner handicap over 7f. The six-year-old, who has won over a similar trip can take the closing race of the evening at the expense of a couple of solid and consistent types around here in Arcanears and C&D winner Nigg Bay who has been running admirably in defeat recently. The Sheila Lavery-trained Mr Scarlet and Red Cymbal for trainer Anthony McCann could go well at a price.
