10/1, tenth of 11 in handicap at Windsor (6f, good to firm) 23 days ago. Drops into 0-75 company and blinkers enlisted but fair bit to prove at present.

Turned in best effort of the season when second of 7 in handicap at Lingfield (5f, good to firm, 10/1) 11 days ago, no chance with winner. Another to consider.

Verdict

BLITZ is now 3lb lower than her last winning mark and has the assistance of William Cox's 5lb claim, along with the aid of first-time blinkers, which could see the daughter of Exceed And Excel get her head back in front. Powerful Dream is respected due to her recent form, which has been fairly consistent, while Secretfact is back down to his last winning mark so could prove dangerous.

Verdict

SECRETFACT hasn't had much luck since returning to action this year, but all his ability is clearly intact and he's worth another chance. Powerful Dream and Fethiye Boy are feared most in a tightly-knit affair.
