Form & Verdict

Slight improvement for the switch to handicaps this year, albeit not as much as might have been expected; still unexposed over this sort of trip though - his latest 1m2f fourth came in a slowly-run contest - and he's not a forlorn hope.

Nothing special on the Flat for Andrew Balding but signed off with pretty convincing AW handicap win in March (9.4f; RPR 68); changed hands for 20,000gns last month; no surprise if he features on stable/hurdle debut.

Ex-Willam Jarvis; 16-race maiden; may have needed the run when 5l-seventh of nine in a Newcastle handicap on stable debut on return from a break ten days ago (1m; pulled hard); hood now tried; should improve on that.

Longstanding maiden who was turned over at 4-1 or shorter seven times for William Jarvis last year bought for 11,000gns; on a career-low mark for her new yard after seven months off and it will be interesting to see if the money comes yet again.

Four AW wins since September, two of them here; had something up his sleeve when scoring over 1m4f here on Monday and he's a solid contender despite the steadier of a 6lb penalty.

C&D winner who is now 10lb lower than when last successful and has run with credit lately, but despite having been below his last winning mark for a while his losing run is up to 14; also a suspicion that he needs a stiffer test than this these days.

Two improved efforts since handicapping, runner-up over 1m and then a close third (despite saddle slipping) over 7f last time; still has time to do better and this trip should be within range; more appealing than most.

Had a good run of form at 1m on AW, successful on Polytrack in December; 0-4 on turf but has potential on grass, having run well off this mark over C&D last spring (soft; acts on firm) when third to one who was way ahead of her mark (runner-up also scored next time); worth considering.
