79-6OR: 69CD
8/1

C&D winner who has already won six times on the turf. Back from a 162-day absence here and finished third in last four races that have come after similar breaks so similar effort expected today.

Improved effort on handicap debut when third over 1m at Lingfield in which he was beaten just under 4L. Needs to find further progress here but in just his fifth start it remains a possibility.

9/4

Won on stable debut over C&D and followed up subsequently at Chelmsford when winning by ½L. 5lb rise today ups the ante but in current form she simply has to be highly respected.

With Jim Bolger when keeping on strongly to make a winning handicap debut (7f apprentices') at Leopardstown in July 2019; less proficient thereafter and failed to beat a rival on stable bow at Newcastle so hard to fancy.

7/4

Won at Chelmsford last September and after two seconds he then hosed up here when last seen in November. Up 6lb for that 3¾L win but that may not be enough given how quickly he's progressing.

14/1

Seven-time course winner (five over at this trip); first run for this yard having departed from David Evans when sixth of nine here and that's twice she's looked back in the handicappers grip.

7/1

Losing run now stretches back 18 months and although on old form this mark should be well within range his overall form suggests it still too high given apparent regression.

Betting

Forecast

Charlie Arthur (7/4), Velvet Vision (9/4), Dr Jekyll (13/2), Windsor Cross (7/1), Zodiakos (8/1), Bond Angel (14/1), Suaimhneach (25/1)

Verdict

Two very in-form handicappers head the list here with slight preference for CHARLIE ARTHUR who could hardly have been more impressive when last seen. The selection hasn't raced for a couple of months so fellow hat-trick seeker Velvet Vision is a big threat. Most of the others look poorly handicapped at present although lightly raced Dr Jekyll can still improve.
