Play 4 To Win At Betway Handicap (Div 1)
Class 6 | 1m 2f | Standard / Slow | 9 Runners | Polytrack
Off time: 18:39 | Winning time: 2m 6.82s
In cracking form on fast ground last summer with two wins and a second but not seen after July and showed little on Kempton comeback. Hopefully that should bring her on though slight concern that her two AW runs to date have been disappointing.
One piece of form last year when with Gordon Elliott but form regressed after and no better in two runs in Germany. Now starts off for a new yard and plenty to prove at present.
Finally took advantage of her sliding mark when winning for the first time since 2018 under this rider at Windsor recently. Up just 2lb for that nose victory and looks sure to be a major player.
Has suddenly taken off under this rider last two runs since the tongue-tie was added and followed his narrow defeat at Bath with a win at this trip at the same venue. Clearly in good heart and claims off 4lb higher mark.
Was a maiden with Hughie Morrison having shown similar form over various trips. Changed hands for just 2,000 gns and more needed to get off the mark.
Similar form in trio of maidens over 1m and 1m2f without been knocked about and type to leave that form well behind now handicapping. Market should reveal more but positive move would be interesting.
Penultimate run can be ignored as 7f trip was too sharp, but fair form either side of that included a game win at a big price here in June. More exposed than some of these but not without a chance.
Not knocked about in trio of maiden/novice events and should do much better now handicapping with opening mark looking pretty fair. One for the short list under interesting jockey booking.
Losing run now stretches back to 2018 but still capable of bits of form, though others are less exposed and make more appeal
