Tongue strap on for 1st time, creditable sixth of 12 in handicap (11/1) at Chelmsford City (5f) 18 days ago. Others appear better treated.
C&D winner. Tongue strap on for 1st time, bit below form sixth of 12 in handicap (33/1) at Chelmsford City (5f) 11 days ago, having hopeless task from position. Others preferred.
First run since leaving Richard Hughes when respectable sixth of 15 in handicap at Nottingham (5f, good to firm) 19 days ago. Eyeshields on 1st time. Merits consideration.
Missed break when well held at Sandown latest but has 3 victories to his name this year and must enter calculations.
Twenty four runs since last win in 2019. Respectable fourth of 9 in handicap at Musselburgh (5f, heavy, 13/2) 7 days ago. Makes tapeta debut. Not out of things.
Well beaten in much deeper race at York last time, but scored 3 times on AW earlier this year and been cut plenty of slack by the handicapper.
Eighth of 11 in handicap at Kempton (6f, 40/1) 10 days ago. Makes tapeta debut. Improvement required.
14/1, respectable sixth of 10 in handicap at Lingfield (5f, AW) 4 days ago. Makes tapeta debut. Each-way claims.
Thirteen runs since last win in 2019. 10/1, sixth of 9 in handicap at this C&D 7 days ago. Cheekpieces back on. Others preferred.
4-time C&D winner. Sixteen runs since last win in 2019. 14/1, respectable fifth of 11 in handicap at this course (6.1f) 20 days ago. Visor on 1st time. Others more persuasive.
Tathmeen (10/3), Get Boosting (4/1), Reassure (11/2), Spirit Of The Sky (8/1), Duke Of Firenze (9/1), Prince of Rome (10/1), Seneca Chief (11/1), Intimate Moment (11/1), Show Me The Bubbly (14/1), You're Cool (22/1)
It could be worth chancing TATHMEEN, who is attractively handicapped and will appreciate the return to this surface. Seneca Chief and Prince of Rome should also make their presence felt.
