99-12OR: 62BFCD
3/1

Good effort when a close third (debut run in blinkers) at Wolverhampton three weeks ago and is suited by a good test on the Flat; record in this sphere is consistent and not much to find despite being 6lb above his last winning mark.

4/7

Flourishing after wins at Kempton (2m) and Chelmsford (1m6f) in the last fortnight; but still a player despite the double penalty (10lb extra today). Blinkers again left off and not over faced in the bid for the hat-trick; must be taken seriously.

9/1

Entitled to respect on the pick of his form but was well held over 1m5f here earlier in the month and needs a step forward on that form. Possible he needed the run that day and this step up in trip will help but still has a bit to prove at present.

33/1

Career punctuated by several long breaks but did win a couple of races over hurdles when fresh back in 2017; a lot of water under the bridge since then and not seen any action for 597 days; too much guesswork involved for a recommendation.

50/1

A rare runner on the Flat from a highly respected Jumps orientated yard whose record in this discipline stands at two winners from just six runners on the AW over the last five years. However, his fellow didn't do much for the stats last time.

Out of the weights and out of form since joining his current yard. Tried in blinkers but to no avail latest (headgear now discarded) and is another who makes limited appeal on these terms.

Unexposed at the trip and didn't run too badly in the first-time visor at Kempton last month (finished in front of Percy's Legend (over 1m4f). Stamina to prove now upped in distance again and no easy task from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Estrela Star (4/7), Master Burbidge (3/1), Capricorn Prince (5/1), Percy's Prince (7/1), Heron (9/1), Rockstar Max (16/1), Normandy Blue (25/1), Londonia (33/1), Norse Legend (50/1)

Verdict

The races Estrela Star won in the last fortnight were slightly more competitive than this on paper and the gelding has to merit an interest now he chases a third straight win within a fortnight. However, the betting market is likely to offer little value for a horse who carries 10lb extra (theoretically 4lb well in), but has only raced on Lingfield's turf course but not yet tried on the Polytrack here. Therefore, a small cover bet with the less exposed CAPRICORN PRINCE is suggested as a more appealing option at the likely odds. The selection is steadily getting the hang of things and looks a player at this level. Master Burbidge is forwarded as best of the rest.
  1. Capricorn Prince
  2. Estrela Star
  3. Master Burbidge
