Formerly smart including winning a Group 3 at Sandown in July 2021, but 0-11 since and tailed off in the Stewards' Cup when last seen; not hard to look elsewhere.

On a reduced mark but that is a result of a two-year losing spell; it's been a while since he ran over 6f and although he'll handle the ground, he has too much to prove for comfort.

Debut winner when trained in Ireland (5f); no sign of controlling her headstrong tendencies but has still run well in three of her four handicaps (on soft/good; 5f/6f); returning to 5f looks the right move and can go well.

None too consistent but a capable sprinter on his day and ran a fair race last time at Newcastle with the cheekpieces back on; tongue-tie now added; could go well.

J: Jack Garritty

T: Tim Easterby

His last win was 12 months ago but that was over C&D and he's finished runner-up at Pontefract and Redcar (both at 5f on soft) in last two starts; on same mark as for both those runs and he's respected with blinkers added.

Doesn't win too often (4-30) but 5f on soft ground is what he wants and he saw it out well to finish second last time at Pontefract; that was in a higher grade so his claims are crystal clear here.

Verdict

This is a big drop in grade for Came From The Dark and he has to enter calculations but this track doesn’t always lend itself to his hold-up tactics. Showalong can go well back on slower ground but REIGNING PROFIT was in good form in the spring and he can show the benefit of a summer break and record his third C&D win of the season. Herakles isn’t fully exposed and is another to consider.[Paul Smith]
