11/8
Improving son of Territories who was well backed and looked unlucky not to finish closer when fourth of 7 at Pontefract (6f) last month, denied a run 1f out but keeping on. One to be interested in.

5/1
Improved when bagging 7f nurseries here/Catterick (both at 7f) last summer. Not disgraced when midfield at Doncaster (7f) final start and the drop to 6f shouldn't inconvenience him on return.

28/1
Progressed nicely as a 2-y-o, landing a Ripon novice (6f) in September and followed up in a York nursery on yard debut a month later. Far from disgraced next 2 starts but wide draw not ideal on return

Made a winning debut at Doncaster (6f) in November. Beaten at short odds at Southwell the following month but not seen to best effect at Newcastle in February. Remains the type to do better.

40/1
Kodiac gelding who landed back-to-back AW novice events (at 6f) during the winter. Yet to scale same heights for new yard this spring, yet he's another who remains low-mileage and return to 6f a plus.

Made it fourth time lucky in a Ripon maiden (5f) last July and hit the frame next 3 starts in nurseries. Possible last month's Thirsk return was needed but draw in 10 not ideal here.

Dual winner as a juvenile but he ran poorly returning from 4 months off when last of 9 at Newmarket (6f) in April. Will need to leave that effort in his wake to feature.

Showed improved form when signing off last term with success in a Pontefract novice (6f) in October. Never dangerous on return/handicap debut at that venue in April and better showing not ruled out.

13/2
Low-mileage son of Mehmas who opened account at Windsor (5f) in October. Gelded, looked very rusty when second on AW return at Wolverhampton and he definitely remains with potential now handicapping.

Well positioned when opening account in 6f Chelmsford nursery in August but seemingly not 100% at Goodwood (6f) the following month. Has since switched yards but this a tough enough ask on return.

Forecasts

Uncle Jumbo (11/8), Paws For Thought (5/1), Tanfantic (11/2), Good Listener (13/2), Pivoting (8/1), Selected (8/1), Tipperary Tiger (8/1), Kool Moe Dee (12/1), Sir Benedict (25/1), Imperium Blue (28/1), Water Of Leith (40/1), Salsoul (66/1)

Verdict

UNCLE JUMBO was well backed and looked unlucky not to finish closer when a close-up fourth at Pontefract (6f) last month, denied a run over 1f out but keeping on. Operating from a good draw and for an in-form yard, he looks sure to go well. Tanfantic and Good Listener are fancied to give the selection most to think about.

  1. UNCLE JUMBO
  2. TANFANTIC
  3. GOOD LISTENER (IRE)
