Verdict

Plough Boy likes to go forward so a wide draw looks to be against him, while Bluesbreaker saw his winning run come to an end here two weeks ago and might have to settle for another supporting role. Danz Gift is another to have been done no favours by a wide draw so preference is for FLAWLESSLY, below par last time but a good winner here previously and breaking from stall number two tonight.

Verdict

DANZ GIFT appeared unsuited by a change of tactics when third to Bluesbreaker over C&D last month, and he’s well worth another chance from this mark. Plough Boy and Pillar head the list of dangers in a competitive handicap.

Verdict

Port Lions sets a stiff standard with an official rating of 84 but he has had plenty of chances now and another runner-up finish over 7f here last time illustrates that he remains vulnerable to an improver. The obvious one to fit that bill is MAX VELOCITY, much improved when finishing a good fourth here back in December and a colt who still appears to be on the upgrade. Havingagoodtime is well bred and could be worth a second look on debut.

Verdict

PORT LIONS found one too good for the third time in a row here last month, but the addition of headgear looks a good move and he is taken to gain a deserved first success. Max Velocity and Cache Queen look the most likely dangers.

Verdict

Military Hill went down by under a length over this track and trip when last sighted, with Cresendo back in fourth, and is expected to remain competitive off this 1lb higher mark. Narrow preference, however, is for RUMMAGING, who is well treated on his best form and hinted a return to winning ways was imminent when third over C&D latest. Lady Rosebud is proven under conditions and should also go well from a low draw.

Verdict

SO SENSIBLE shaped as if better for the run when fourth over C&D in December and is potentially well handicapped now. Rummaging and Military Hill both arrive in form and are others to consider.

Verdict

Togoville wasn't beaten far over 7f here last time and will likely appreciate this drop back in trip, though he is drawn wider than ideal and will be looking to trap well to avoid being caught wide. It might be worth siding with ART NOUVELLE, who struck at Lingfield on a raid to the UK latest and is expected to be competitive off this 5lb higher mark now back on home soil. Master Speaker exploited the handicapper's generosity over C&D last time and has strong claims, despite a 6lb rise.

Verdict

MASTER SPEAKER made a winning start for his new yard with a cosy victory over C&D last month and still looks fairly treated off his adjusted mark. He is fancied to follow up. Togoville and Art Nouvelle are solid alternatives.

Verdict

FINANCIAL CONDUCT opened his account at the fourth attempt in a C&D maiden in December and is expected to give a good account of himself now sent handicapping on an opening mark of 78. Mainicin is only 3lb higher than when scoring over the extended 1m2f here in December and is also known to stay this longer trip. He can fight it out for the silver medal with Zaofu, who drops back from 2m, and Colla Pier, who is is fairly treated on the level in relation to his hurdles and chase marks.

Verdict

POLITICAL POLICY left the impression he should have finished closer when third in a minor event over further here 7 days ago, and with the drop in trip holding no fears he gets the narrow vote in an open-looking contest. Alcander and handicap debutant Financial Conduct are a couple of others to consider.
