AW winner in Ireland. Better effort for this yard when third of 7 at Kempton (1m) 16 days ago. Will need to build on that to come out on top here.

Sole win back in 2019 but he has largely been in good form since joining this yard, again runner-up at Carlisle on Wednesday. Looks the pick of the older horses.

Fair form when placed in AW novice events at the end of 2020 but to no impact in a pair of handicaps on turf since returning to action. Has a fair bit to prove for now.

Drawn a blank since debut win last spring. Creditable third at Windsor (6f) in May but well held over 7f at Doncaster since. Up in trip again now.

Improved when second of 10 on 1m Chelmsford handicap debut 17 days ago. Contender if he can translate that form back to the grass.

Has shown promise in his qualifying runs and appeals as a likely improver now moving into handicap company. All the more interesting if backed.

First run since leaving William Haggas when fourth of 6 in 1¼m handicap here (Rowley course) last month. Too free kept to 1¼m at Goodwood since and may benefit from the drop back to 1m.

Lightly-raced maiden. Last 2 efforts at Windsor show he can be competitive from this sort of mark. Likely to be in the mix.

Shaped well on his first 2 outings this term. That makes his 2 subsequent efforts a bit disappointing but the booking of William Buick suggests connections may be hopeful he can bounce back this evening.

Back on track when second at Windsor (1m) in April and performed with credit when fourth over 7f at Doncaster since, keeping on when short of room final 110yds. Return to 1m looks ideal and there should be a race in him from this mark.

Forecasts

Maysong (3/1), Life's A Beach (5/1), Shabs (6/1), Chequer Square (13/2), Giovanni Baglione (8/1), Broughtons Mission (8/1), The Mouse King (17/2), Silks Pass (11/1), Alvediston (12/1), Eloso (16/1), Mr Marvlos (25/1)

Verdict

SHABS gets the nod in this tight-looking handicap. Chequer Square and The Mouse King head the dangers, while Giovanni Baglione appeals as a potential improver now switching to a handicap and is one to monitor in the betting.
