10/1

C&D winner but it's now twelve runs since last win in 2019. 8/1 and tongue strap on, below-form eighth of 13 in handicap here 16 days ago. Needs to bounce back.

Remains a maiden after 23 runs but posted good third of 13 in handicap over C&D 16 days ago. Temperamental sort though so others appeal more.

Course winner but only tenth of 12 in handicap at Lingfield (8f, AW) 53 days ago. More needed if he's to get back to winning ways.

Arrives out of sorts, thirteenth of 14 in handicap (22/1) at Newcastle (8f) 12 days ago. Plummeting in the weights but he still needs to show lot more.

6/1

C&D winner who arrives on back of creditable fifth of 14 in handicap (11/1) at Chelmsford City (10f) 23 days ago, having to pick way through. Can make presence felt.

11/2

Eleven runs since last win in 2018 but she made the frame for fourth start in a row when creditable third of 13 in handicap at Lingfield (10f, AW) 13 days ago. Enters calculations.

50/1

C&D winner but he beat only one in 12f handicap (80/1) here 57 days ago. Back down in trip and not easy to make a case for.

5/1

Run of good form came to an end when only twelfth of 14 in handicap at Chelmsford City (10f) 23 days ago, dropping away quickly. Makes tapeta debut with bit to prove now.

18/1, creditable sixth of 12 in handicap here (8.6f) 14 days ago, not ideally placed. One for the shortlist.

Still a maiden but creditable fourth of 13 in handicap at Lingfield (10f, AW, 9/1) 13 days ago. Makes tapeta debut and not dismissed if taking to the surface.

17/2

Still to open his account but in good form until stiff task when seventh in claimer over C&D 40 days ago. Yard going great guns so expected to be bang there off reduced mark back in handicap company.

33/1

Only one win from 35 runs, and he came in last of 11 in handicap at Chelmsford City (8f, 12/1) 4 days ago. Very hard to enthuse over.

Betting

Forecast

Fair Man (5/1), Enzo (5/1), Plansina (11/2), Thunderoad (6/1), Red Gunner (6/1), Van Dijk (17/2), Manfadh (10/1), Lady Magda (12/1), Christmas Night (22/1), Fashion Free (33/1), Apache Blaze (33/1), Kingson (40/1), Windsorlot (50/1)

Verdict

An open handicap in which VAN DIJK is worth siding with to lose his maiden status as he has dropped to a very handy mark and hails from a stable among the winners. In-form C&D scorer Red Gunner rates the chief threat and the consistent Plansina is another to consider in a tight-knit affair.

  1. VAN DIJK
  2. RED GUNNER
  3. PLANSINA
