9/2
Fair gelding who showed benefit of his reappearance run when finishing creditable fourth of 13 in handicap at Wetherby (1m, good) 17 days ago, no extra final 100 yds. However, no easy task on these terms dropped to claiming company.

Fairly useful gelding who, on the back of a spell in Bahrain, ran creditably back on these shores when finishing close-up sixth in a Kempton handicap (1m) in March. Absent since but arrives here with good claims on these terms.

Good start for this yard when landing Ripon maiden (1m) last August but ended the campaign on a low-key note. Respectable fourth on return at Haydock but again well below that level at Windsor (11.5f) 18 days ago. Forecast quicker conditions here may help. Blinkers go on.

Didn't need to be at best to resume winning ways in a Redcar seller (1m) in September but well held final 2 starts last term and again well held when last of 9 on return at Windsor (1m) in April. Visor again the headgear of choice.

Lightly raced C&D winner for Andrew Balding but ended time with that stable below form and fared no better on return/yard debut at Kempton (7f) 16 days ago. Quickly dropped in grade with blinkers now the headgear of choice.

Forecasts

Brains (5/4), Liberation Point (2/1), Perfect Swiss (9/2), Strawberry Jack (10/1), Sunset Salute (22/1)

Verdict

The solid one here could be BRAINS, who ran well to finish a close-up sixth in a Kempton handicap on his return to these shores in March and holds sound claims on these terms down in grade. Liberation Point may emerge next best with first-time blinkers enlisted, ahead of Perfect Swiss.
