25/1

C&D winner. 8¾ lengths ninth of 13 to Uncle Bernie in handicap (33/1) at Wolverhampton (16.6f) 39 days ago, shuffled back home turn and making no impression. Others make greater appeal.

Below form sixth of 12 in handicap (12/1) at Chelmsford City (13.3f) 13 days ago. Needs to bounce back returned to this longer trip.

20/1

Cheekpieces on for 1st time, eleventh of 16 in handicap at Windsor (11.4f, good to soft, 14/1) 37 days ago. Significantly up in trip. One to note when market vibes are particularly positive.

9/2

Twelve runs since last win in 2018. 13/2, third of 14 in handicap at this C&D (AW) 11 days ago, left poorly placed. Cheekpieces back on and he's one to be interested in from this sort of mark.

4/1

Creditable second of 14 in handicap at this C&D (AW, 14/1) 11 days ago, better placed than most. Still, he can go well again with a repeat.

10/3

Twice-raced maiden. Fifth of 12 in minor event at Kempton (12f, 4/1) 35 days ago, still looking green. In good hands and better expected now handicapping in blinkers/upped in trip.

18/1

Unreliable sort who put it all together to win 13-runner handicap (20/1) at Wolverhampton (16.6f) 39 days ago, getting on top inside final 1f. No sure thing to be in the same form here.

14/1

Latest win at Chelmsford City in June. 7/2, creditable third of 10 in handicap at Chelmsford City (13.3f) 76 days ago. No surprise to see her in the mix once more.

33/1

Unreliable individual. Last of 14 in handicap at Kempton (16f, 25/1) 47 days ago, clearly not 100% on the day. Record has been distinctly mixed however since his victory at Kempton in February.

13/2, bit below form fourth of 12 in handicap at Chelmsford City (13.3f) 13 days ago, unable to sustain effort. Application of first-time blinkers may help now.

Betting

Forecast

Keane's Kingdom (10/3), Lyrica's Lion (4/1), Ballydoyle (9/2), Celtic Classic (7/1), Social City (9/1), Aleatoric (14/1), Affair (14/1), Uncle Bernie (18/1), Lovely Lou Lou (20/1), Amanto (25/1), Kybosh (33/1), American Craftsman (40/1), River Dart (50/1)

Verdict

KEANE'S KINGDOM has looked a work-in-progress in a pair of outings in AW maiden/novice events 7 months apart. However, he's in good hands and, now handicapping with blinkers reached for, better can be expected with his stamina drawn out. Ballydoyle caught the eye last time, and along with Affair, heads up the dangers.
