11/1
Temperamental sort. Seventeen runs since last win in 2019. Good second of 14 in handicap (50/1) at Kempton (11f) 25 days ago. Needs a couple of these to falter.

Twelve runs since last win in 2020 but posted good second of 13 in handicap (10/1) at this C&D (AW) 7 days ago, well positioned. Expected to be bang there.

Career best when winning 10-runner handicap at Chelmsford City (14f, 16/5) 7 months ago. Course winner too so much respected despite his absence.

15/8
Unreliable sort but recorded one of his better efforts when third of 11 in handicap at Wolverhampton (14f, 9/2) 14 days ago. Not ruled out if able to back that effort up.

Poor maiden on Flat. Seventh of 8 in minor event at this course (10f, AW, 200/1) 27 days ago. Makes handicap debut but others more persuasive.

50/1
Lightly-raced maiden on Flat. 125/1, creditable third over hurdles at Plumpton (17.8f, good) 29 days ago. Cheekpieces on for 1st time. No forlorn hope.

Forecasts

Hammy End (15/8), Foresee (10/3), Evaporust (6/1), Double Legend (15/2), Stormingin (11/1), Compass Point (12/1), Cool To Be A Cat (12/1), Corofin (16/1), Singer In The Sand (50/1), Aquascopic (50/1)

Verdict

A tightly-knit handicap in which FORESEE is taken to go one better than his recent C&D second and end his losing run. Course-winner Compass Point rates the chief threat on the back of his Southwell victory, with Evaporust not taken lightly either despite his absence.

  1. FORESEE (GER)
  2. COMPASS POINT
  3. EVAPORUST (IRE)
