5/1
Kitten's Joy colt who confirmed debut promise when running out a good winner of a Kempton novice (7f) in October, travelling and keeping on well. Far too free on return from 6 months off behind Maljoom at Kempton (1m) in April but the hood may have positive effect now.

Mehmas gelding who made it second time lucky at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in December and at least as good when fourth on return in a strong-looking 1m novice here 3 weeks ago. May do better again now handicapping.

Doubled career tally in a Wolverhampton nursery (9.5f) in November. Similar form on 2 of his 4 starts in defeat this year and likely 1¼m again stretched him when sixth of 7 in a handicap here latest. Still, he may be vulnerable to less exposed types here.

7/4
Different proposition on back of being gelded/switched to handicaps, scoring on return at Leicester and following up in determined style at Newbury (1m) 15 days ago. That race lacked depth but he was nicely clear with runner-up and suspect there's more in his locker.

Forecasts

Maytree Respite (5/4), Nietzsche's Star (7/4), Vintage Choice (7/2), Bayraq (5/1), Tropez Power (15/2)

Verdict

Despite the small field, this is probably NEITZSCHE'S STAR's toughest assignment to date but he's looked an all-round improved model for being gelded/switched to handicaps and may well be up to completing the hat-trick with the prospect of even more to come. Maytree Respite likely has more to come and is feared most on handicap debut.
