Form & Verdict

Finished in rear at big prices in his three runs (1m) in the autumn but he's a brother to a 2m winner and could show a lot more over this stiffer stamina test on his handicap debut; needs a close look for yard that has been firing in winners recently.

3yo who made it 3-5 in handicaps when making all at Beverley (2m, good to firm) last Thursday; 2lb well in under a penalty for that clearcut win and he's a major player again, particularly if the ground dries out; his wins have come on good/good to firm and he's struggled in two runs on soft.

Form & Verdict

Cracksman half-brother to five winners including Shabeeb (1m2f-1m6f; RPR 103); down the field in three maiden/novice events since November but he's been gelded since his last run in April and looks a possible improver now upped in trip on handicap debut; needs watching in market.

Bit to prove on softish ground but he won well over C&D in July and then bumped into a sharp improver (since completed a four-timer) over 1m6f at Salisbury; only 2lb higher for this and, if handling the ground, should go very close, at the least.

Well suited by the step up to 1m3f on handicap debut when going close against a subsequent winner at Yarmouth and he wasn't too hard pressed to get off the mark at Pontefract in July (1m4f; both on good to firm); up 5lb but dam has bred two who won at 1m6f+ and he looks a good candidate for this longer trip.

Struggled across three 7f-1m starts last winter before being gelded; out of a well-related winner in France and now makes his turf/handicap debut but he needs a transformation upped to this trip on his return.

Took his form to a new level (RPR of 71) when comfortably completing the hat-trick at Newcastle (1m, Class 5, 7-2) last week; no issue with this track, and has the excellent Ben Coen booked as he seeks to defy a 5lb penalty; sets the benchmark.

OUR TIP

11/4

Form: 8-2221 D

Last run: 3 days

W: 10st 3lb

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Has not looked entirely straightforward but he has form figures of 2221 in handicaps this season and he won by 7l when making all at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm; first-time blinkers) on Monday; this is a deeper race but he's open to more progress and is a key player under a penalty.

Form & Verdict

Eight-race maiden but he's finished placed in three of his last four handicaps including when a keeping-on third at Southwell (1m, AW) last month; a visor is now added on this big step up in trip but he has plenty of stamina on dam's side and he's an interesting contender.
