Class 5 | 1m 3f 197y | Good to Firm | 10 Runners | Turf
Off time: 16:32 | Winning time: 2m 33.68s
Useful dual-purpose handicapper, wins in his turn and now only 2lb higher than last winning mark; conditions here look ideal and he'll strip fitter for a recent run at Pontefract. Dropped in grade too, and could take a hand for a yard going well.
Pretty consistent filly that deservedly got her head back in front at Wolverhampton on her reappearance (9½f) and handicapper sensible with a 2lb rise; of more concern is the big step up in trip today, which isn't sure to suit.
Steady progress over the last year since going handicapping and right up to form when second at Goodwood on reappearance, possibly a shade unlucky in the run; consistent and conditions fine, so no reason not to go well once more.
Tends to race over further but actually has a good record at this trip, and added to it with a solid second to Tigerskin on his reappearance at Newmarket two weeks ago; not much room for manoeuvre off this mark, but still of interest.
Three times a winner in the spring of 2019 (for Brian Ellison) and came back to form with a close second over this trip at Newcastle in February, belying 50/1 odds; not seen since so may need this, and others make slightly more appeal.
Irish raider, last seen winning a fillies juvenile hurdle here in March, and this trip ought to suit; good jockey booking too, and any support in the market needs taking seriously.
Winner over 14f at Wolverhampton in January, but was well below that form on reappearance at Redcar a fortnight ago, and may need another run or two to put him straight; this drop in trip not sure to suit either.
Came good off a 9lb lower mark around this time last year at Hamilton (9f) and ran well in defeat after; not a bad effort on reappearance at Newcastle earlier in the month but this step up in trip is an unknown.
Had a great time of it on the all-weather last winter, winning four times, but handicapper took action after that, and he found life harder; solid enough first run back after the break at Kempton but others make a bit more appeal all the same.
Unexposed after just the three starts, and ran a promising race on final start at Wolverhampton, running on into fourth (1m), looking ready for a step up in trip; yard had a winner last week, and he's not discounted.
