CREATIVE FORCE - (1.50 Newbury, 3pts win - 9/4)

As you know, I am a huge fan of CREATIVE FORCE and I genuinely believe that this horse is going to make an impact at the top level sooner rather than later. This is his first big test but Newmarket's Rowley Mile, although 3/3 there, has masked his superiority in his victories.

He has reached a high level of form in just four runs and the manner in which he left his rivals for dead once he picked up was really impressive. He should be faster than Tactical for who the drop back in trip is a likely negative and Happy Romance is vulnerable in this company.

IRV - (2.10 Thirsk, 2pts win - 7/1)

Both IRV and Rum Runner appeal this contest but the selection has the stronger look to his recent form after being denied a clear run on multiple occasions and finishing on the bridle at Pontefract last time.

The winner was an unexposed sort and the runner-up went close up in grade next time out and this will be just his second start on good ground down in a class 5 event. He has fallen in the handicap and is 6lbs below his last winning mark which came in a class 3 event in 2019. Furthermore, his jockey claims 7lbs off him making him look extremely well treated.

His course form figures at Thirsk read 224 with the two most recent runs in handicaps off of 82 and 78 and for the last 2 years he has run at the York meeting second time out in class 3 and 2 handicaps and it's interesting that connections now run here instead, in a class 5.

DEVILWALA - (2.40 Newmarket, 1pt win - 4/1)

DEVILWALA gets first-time blinkers, a drop back to an optimum trip of 7f in which he scored a career-best here with a fourth in the Group 1 Dewhurst,a drop in grade and is taking on a Maiden Filly winner and a promising horse that has been off the track for 252 days.

If he can't win this then Beckett may as well draw stumps for the season with him. There are many reasons for him to improve here and his price is just too big.

DUBAWI SANDS - (3.00 Newbury, 1pt each-way - 8/1)

It's hard to pass on DUBAWI SANDS at the prices especially given he hasn't shown his full hand just yet and makes his handicap debut off a potentially lenient handicap mark of 86. His run at Ripon was hardly anything to shout about but he didn't handle that undulating track and is sure to improve for the experience after an educational ride.

His Nottingham run previously behind Mashoor looks as though it will prove good form and he is bred to overachieve and is one of few in this race off workable marks.

JUMBY - (3.15 Newmarket, 1pt win - 3/1)

This is the time to catch JUMBY who was unlucky not to finish closer to Creative Force over course and distance last time out on seasonal reappearance. He can strip fitter for that run and this 6f trip could be the making of him.

He picked up very strongly after being denied a clear run on two occasions and he looks a very progressive horse to keep on side and can leave this handicap mark of 95 well behind him.

WALHAAN - (3.50 Newmarket, 1pt each-way - 14/1)

WALHAAN came out of the Victoria Cup last week to my grave disappointment but it may be a blessing tackling this easier assignment. He is well handicapped on the balance of his form and even more so with the winner of last weeks race a horse he would have been 23lbs better off at the weights with.

This is now a drop-in class into class 3 company and he looks well over-priced even on this seasonal return.
