Low-mileage 4-y-o who posted a career best when winning 8-runner C&D handicap 9 days ago, leading final 100 yds. No reason why he won't go well again.

Seventeen runs since last win in 2019. Not disgraced when seventh of 14 in handicap at Southwell (7.1f) 24 days ago, short of room final 1f. Mark is easing all the time and not dismissed. Hooded.

Cheekpieces on for 1st time, 9¼ lengths fifth of 8 to Almaan in handicap at this C&D 9 days ago, never landing a blow. No surprise to see her closer to form here from sliding mark.

2/1
C&D winner. Latest win here in October. Third of 4 in handicap (4/1) at Kempton (12f) 31 days ago, needing stronger gallop. Significantly back down in trip and he remains one to be interested in.

Visored for 1st time, seventh of 9 in handicap at Lingfield (7f, soft) in June, the underfoot conditions a plausible excuse. No surprise to see a better showing back from a break/on AW.

Back-to-back AW winner (including this race) for Richard Hannon last winter. Yet to scale same heights for new yard but did hint at better when fifth at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 12 days ago.

C&D winner. Latest win at Lingfield (1m) in January. Creditable second of 9 in handicap (11/8) at Kempton (8f) 3 days ago. Looks competitive on form.

80/1
Thrice-raced maiden. 66/1, best effort to date when fifth of 9 in minor event at Wolverhampton (7.2f) in September. Still, that was only modest form and he needs to build on that now handicapping.

Forecasts

Jenson Benson (2/1), Almaan (11/4), Magical Mile (11/2), Agent Of Fortune (6/1), Coase (7/1), Adace (12/1), Win Win Power (18/1), Woke Media (50/1), Apache Charm (80/1)

Verdict

A competitive handicap with the narrow vote in favour of JENSON BENSON. Progressive around this venue during the second half of 2021, he wasn't seen to best effect when third in a small-field handicap at Kempton (12f) on his latest outing. Still one to be positive about, he should put up a better showing here. Almaan and Agent of Fortune are also fancied to feature.

  1. JENSON BENSON (IRE)
  2. ALMAAN (USA)
  3. AGENT OF FORTUNE
