Last of 8 in handicap at Yarmouth (6f, firm, 16/1) 70 days ago. Significantly back up in trip. Must improve.

Course winner. Latest win at Wolverhampton in October. 14/1, creditable fourth of 12 in handicap at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 3 days ago. Has work to do.
Promising type. 6/1, creditable sixth of 14 in handicap at Newcastle (6f) 22 days ago, needing stiffer test. Significantly up in trip. Hood on 1st time. Looks competitive on form.

10/3, respectable fourth of 11 in handicap at Chelmsford City (8f) 41 days ago, worst of draw. Has to be taken seriously.
Hooded for 1st time, creditable sixth of 13 in handicap at this course (7f, AW, 11/1) 21 days ago.
Fourteen runs since last win in 2019. 4/1, creditable fifth of 10 in handicap at Chelmsford City (8f) 27 days ago. Merits consideration.
Revolutionary Man (10/3), Blue Dawn (9/2), Sonnetina (13/2), Black Medick (7/1), Saucy Encore (9/1), Avorisk Et Perils (9/1), The Warrior (12/1), Cristal Pallas Cat (12/1), Lunar Deity (14/1), Fivehundredmiles (16/1), Luna Wish (18/1), Dreamboat Annie (22/1)
BLUE DAWN hasn't been seen to best effect since handicapping and this step up in trip is likely to suit, so this unexposed 3-y-o could be the answer. Sonnetina has been in good form in recent months, shaping well from a poor draw at Chelmsford last time, and rates the main threat ahead of Black Medick.
