4/7

Career best when winning 12-runner handicap (11/4) at this C&D 3 days ago, helped by being held up in strongly-run race. Dangerous to oppose, even under a double penalty.

Temperamental sort. 22/1, below form seventh of 12 in handicap at Redcar (7f, heavy) 6 days ago. Visor on 1st time. Difficult to make a case for at the moment.

9/1

C&D winner. 4/1, improved on recent efforts to win 12-runner handicap at Chelmsford City (6f) 12 days ago, driven out. Looks competitive on form and should play a part.

Lightly-raced maiden. Tenth of 13 in handicap at this course (8.6f, 20/1) 60 days ago. First run for yard after leaving Mark Loughnane. One to note in the market on yard debut.

One win from 35 Flat runs. Last of 12 in handicap at Hamilton (5f, good to soft, 33/1) 32 days ago. Significantly up in trip. Hood back on. Impossible to recommend in current form.

5¼ lengths eighth of 12 to Frow in handicap at Kempton (7f, 8/1) 8 days ago. Tongue strap on 1st time. One to consider with Oisin Murphy booked.

Cheekpieces on for 1st time, eighth of 9 in handicap at Southwell (6.1f, 15/2) 14 days ago. Visor on 1st time. Ran well at this venue prior to that and each-way claims.

Forecast

Frow (4/7), Zuckerberg (13/2), Doctor Nuno (9/1), Vincenzo Coccotti (9/1), Vitesse Du Son (12/1), Chaplin Bay (16/1), Kennocha (25/1), Light Bay (50/1), Billyoakes (66/1), Dodgy Bob (80/1), Trulove (200/1)

Verdict

FROW is very difficult to oppose even under his double penalty. He seems to be thriving at the moment and demolished a similar field over C&D on Monday. Vincenzo Coccotti is also in a rich vein of form and will be the biggest danger. Zuckerburg can be forgiven a below-par run at Southwell and is probably the best each-way hope in here against them.
