Back to winning ways when making all in 13-runner handicap at Kempton (11f, 12/1) 7 days ago. 5 lb penalty to carry but will be dangerous if let loose on lead again here.

22/1
Produced career best when winning 12-runner handicap at Newcastle (10.2f) 8 days ago, plenty in hand. Remains fairly treated, despite a 5 lb penalty, and holds strong claims.

11/2 and tongue strap on for 1st time, third of 5 in handicap at Carlisle (7.8f, good to soft) 21 days ago, slowly away. Significantly back up in trip. Work to do from 4 lb out of the weights.

Forecasts

Natchez Trace (3/1), Savrola (3/1), Smiling Jayne (10/3), Tathbeet (6/1), Gangway (10/1), Night Bear (11/1), Kemerton (20/1), Balqaa (22/1), The Navigator (22/1), Wakey Wakey (80/1)

Verdict

SMILING JAYNE has bumped into well-handicapped rivals the last twice and can get back on the scoreboard here. Balqaa and Natchez Trace look the likeliest dangers.
