Won and placed already this campaign including when runner-up over this trip at Ayr (good) on his penultimate start. Capable of putting a below par Redcar effort last week behind him.

17 race maiden has finished well beaten in both starts this campaign including over an extended 1m at Hamilton (good) last time out. Others make more appeal dropping in trip.

5/1

Couple of decent efforts in defeat this campaign most recently when fifth over 1m at Bath (good-to-firm) last month. Worth a check in the market racing off a mark 2lb higher than when winning at Southwell in February.

Stepped up on previous efforts this season when 3L fourth over 6f at Ripon (good) last time out. Drop in trip appeared to suit that day and interesting to see how he fares back up in distance.

Eight race maiden finished a well beaten eighth in a 1m handicap at Thirsk (good) early last month. Yard yet to hit top form so far this season and he is probably best watched on this occasion.

Out of form in two starts since winning a novice event over an extended 7f at Chester (good-to-firm) in June last year. Others make more appeal.

Back to form with a good third over an extended 5f at Bath (firm) last month. Races from out of the handicap and best form has come over shorter.

13 race maiden has struggled in four starts since finishing third over this trip at Chelmsford in December. Probably best watched from out of the handicap on first start since May.

Nine race maiden finished seventh of eight in a 6f handicap on good-to-firm ground here last time out. Others hold more obvious claims racing from out of the weights.

Struggled when 41L last of 12 in a maiden over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton last October. Absent since and is hard to recommend dropping in trip racing from out of the weights on handicap debut.

Maiden after three starts including when 23L seventh in a 6f novice race at Windsor (good-to-firm) at the end of June. Back up to 7f on handicap debut with cheekpieces worn for the first time at Windsor replaced with a visor (first time).

Seven race maiden finished second in a seller over 7f at Wolverhampton in February and fifth in a classified event over the same C&D later that month. .Worth a check in the market on first start since a gelding operation.

Eight race maiden finished a well beaten ninth in a handicap over this trip at Wolverhampton at the start of last month. Looks up against it from out of the handicap.

Ten race maiden struggled when when beaten 37L in a handicap over 1m here on debut for this yard just over a fortnight ago. Racing from out of the handicap and tongue tie worn for the first time that day is joined by blinkers worn previously.

Forecast

Great Colaci (10/11), Kendergarten Kop (7/2), Luscifer (5/1), Kodimoor (9/1), Dreamboat Annie (12/1), Don't Joke (12/1), Symphony (16/1), Knockacurra (18/1), Osmosis (25/1), Carriage Clock (33/1), Disey's Edge (40/1), Sherella (50/1), Cazeva Princess (50/1), Parker's Boy (50/1), Kira's Star (66/1)

Verdict
GREAT COLACI had been in good form prior to a disappointment last week and he can get back to winning ways with a victory in this competitive looking handicap event. The selection can get the better of top weight Kendergarten Cop who is chasing a first turf victory while third place can go the way of Luscifer who is dropping in trip following a decent effort at Bath on his most recent outing.
  1. Great Colaci
  2. Kendergarten Kop
  3. Luscifer
