Form & Verdict

9yo who isn't the force of old but his mark has dropped accordingly and he was an encouraging fifth at Thirsk recently when denied a clear run; has won on Tapeta elsewhere (and here on Fibresand) and he's one to consider.

J: Jason Watson

T: David O’Meara

Veteran who ended a long losing run with a comfortable C&D win in a Racing League handicap in September; that came off a 5lb higher mark and he's run well enough on occasions since to think he retains a good chunk of ability; he'll need a good pace to aim at but he's a danger to all dropping into a Class 5 handicap for the first time.

Made belated reappearance last month and hasn't really shone on his three starts back; however, he's well treated on last season's 2yo 6f form and could benefit from this step back up in trip; not ruled out on AW debut.

Inconsistent but he won at Carlisle (5f) 12 days ago and his good form tends to come in bursts, with him landing back-to-back wins twice previously in his career; remains on a handy mark and he's run well on the Newcastle Tapeta in the past; 6f should be fine and he's a possible contender.

Has tended to improve for his comeback run in recent seasons and there's not much wiggle room off this mark back from six months off; an easy 5f on good to soft ground wouldn't appeal as optimal either and Paul Mulrennan rides American Affair.

His slow starts are a concern but, having dropped down the weights, he did very well to finish fourth of seven at Goodwood (5f, soft) last time after losing lots of early ground; has won on Tapeta and, having dropped a further 2lb and with the return to 6f a plus, he's capable of having a big say.
