Last win came in 2015, but did run well after 7 months off when third of 12 in handicap (8/1) at Lingfield (7f) 24 days ago, never nearer. Will be thereabouts again if turning up in same form.

Verdict

THE WARRIOR's best form has come over shorter than this trip, but the way he ran on for a close-up third at Lingfield last time suggests he could be worth another try at a mile, particularly on this surface. Alejandro won narrowly over C&D and has to be considered a danger despite a 4lb rise, while Gossiping has a 6lb hike to contend with after winning with some authority over C&D in January. Jufn has managed just two starts so far, so has evidently had his problems, but any support for him should be heeded.

Verdict

GOSSIPING is very much going the right way at present and can defy the handicapper again and make it 3 wins in 4 starts this term. Presumido arrives on the back of a couple of decent efforts in a higher grade than this and should go well with Paddy Bradley taking 5 lb off, while The Warrior is tricky to win with but ran well on last month's return from a break.
