(12)
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-10  |  J: D Fentiman |  T: T D Easterby|  OR: 57

80/1, fifth of 7 in juvenile hurdle at Sedgefield (16.8f, good to soft) 21 days ago. Blinkers now reached for making fibresand debut and the betting may prove the best guide.

Twenty two runs since last win in 2018. Bit below form sixth of 14 in handicap (14/1) at Newcastle (8f) 9 days ago, slowly away. Makes fibresand debut.

Creditable fourth of 10 in handicap at Lingfield (10f, AW, 4/1) 22 days ago, his response to pressure seemingly not all it could be. However, not ruled out for each-way purposes on handicap debut.

4-time course winner. Latest win here in October. 15/2, good second of 13 in handicap at this C&D 28 days ago, no match for winner. Has good chance on form.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-7  |  J: Georgia Dobie |  T: H Spiller|  OR: 52|  D

Eleven runs since last win in 2019. 5/1, not seen to best effect when seventh of 13 in handicap at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 26 days ago, finishing with running left. Now operating from last winning mark.

Age: 5|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: J P Sullivan |  T: Mrs R Carr|  OR: 51

Improved on recent efforts to win 14-runner handicap at Newcastle (7.1f, 14/1) 20 days ago, very much having run of race. Can give a good account again if proving as effective on fibresand.

Eighteen runs since last win in 2019. 11/1, bit below form fifth of 14 in handicap at Chelmsford City (10f) 19 days ago. Not taken lightly.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-2  |  J: Ben Robinson |  T: B Ellison|  OR: 49

Lightly-raced maiden. Best effort to date when fifth of 13 in handicap at Newcastle (8f) 9 days ago. Further progress not ruled out at a low level but she may well be worth a try at 1¼m.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-1  |  J: L Morris |  T: R C Guest|  OR: 45

Remains a maiden after 16 Flat runs. Thirteenth of 14 in handicap (14/1) at this course (6.1f) 11 days ago. Significantly back up in trip. Needs to bounce back with hodd added to eyeshields.

Lightly-raced maiden. 50/1, eighth of 10 in handicap at Chelmsford City (10f) 7 days ago. Leap of improvement required to figure.

Eighteen runs since last win in 2019. 15/2, below form fifth of 10 in handicap at Redcar (8f, heavy) 23 days ago. Something to find on form.

Below form eighth of 13 in handicap at Chelmsford City (7f, 28/1) 19 days ago. Makes fibresand debut. Others more persuasive.

Betting

Geography Teacher (9/4) Dyagilev (11/2) Khazaf (11/2) Compass Point (11/2) Straight Ash (10/1) Parknacilla (10/1) Fast Deal (11/1) Sezina (11/1) Treasured Company (22/1) Trust Me (25/1) Be Bold (28/1) Maxi Miss (40/1)

Verdict

GEOGRAPHY TEACHER again ran well when finding only a much-improved sort too strong over C&D 4 weeks ago and, from a 1 lb lower mark, he's fancied to make his presence felt once more. Newcastle-scorer Khazaf and Dyagilev head up the dangers, in that order.

  1. GEOGRAPHY TEACHER (IRE)
  2. KHAZAF
  3. DYAGILEV
