10/1

Dua 5f winner in 2019 but arrives in poor form, last of 15 in handicap (25/1) at Bath (5.7f, good) 6 days ago. Makes polytrack debut wiith blinkers back on but has plenty to find.

Winless this sesason, and below-par seventh of 10 in handicap at Sandown (5f, good, 15/2) 59 days ago. Tongue strap on now and others more persuasive.

Thirteen runs since last win in 2019 but good second of 10 in handicap at Wolverhampton (5.1f) 15 days ago. Ungenuine type so best left alone.

16/5

Has hinted at promise this season and run best ignored when eighth of 10 in handicap at Lingfield (5f, AW) 28 days ago, having hopeless task from position. Handily weighted so worth considering.

7/2

Latest win at Leicester in August and good second of 9 in handicap (10/1) at Lingfield (5f, AW) 14 days ago, especially as raced wide. C&D winner too so she's shortlisted.

Struggling for form at present, and only eighth of 14 in handicap (40/1) at Southwell (5f) 12 days ago. Needs to bounce back.

Forecast

Bezzas Lad (3/1), Autumn Trail (16/5), Katherine Place (7/2), Nibras Again (4/1), Secretfact (9/2), Our Oystercatcher (8/1), Charlemaine (10/1), Pull Harder Con (14/1), King Robert (16/1), Red Stripes (33/1)

Verdict

BEZZAS LAD is hard to side against after his impressive all-the-way win at Nottingham which is proving strong form. Autumn Trail didn't get the rub of the green at Lingfield last time and is weighted to have a big say so rates the main threat, although C&D winner Katherine Place is another who should make her presence felt.
