Verdict

EXCEL AGAIN ran with plenty of promise on debut having been green early before making excellent progress in the closing stages to finish third at Kempton and should take a big step forward here on his second start. Saxon Flames shaped as though an extra furlong would suit when runner-up over 7f at Lingfield, while Spiritofhayton and Bowban both have solid claims in their own right.

Verdict

SPIRITOFHAYTON shaped with plenty of encouragement when beaten only by one with experience over C&D on debut last month and is preferred to Saxon Flames and Excel Again, who also showed plenty first-time up.

Verdict

Sutter County is clear on official ratings but has struggled to win since returning from injury last August at York and he could just be susceptible to an improver in MERRY BANTER, who makes her first start of her three-year-old career but looked a real improver at the back end of last season and, if following in the footsteps of her sire Bated Breath, who got better with age, is capable of a lot more coming from a yard renowned for decent sprinters. The other pair, Marquee Club and Dazacam, cannot be discounted if producing their best.

Verdict

SUTTER COUNTY is proving expensive to follow, but this isn't as competitive as the Lingfield minor event he contested last week, and he should be able to resume winning ways. Dazacam is chosen for the forecast spot with Paul Hanagan up for the first time.

Verdict

This looks a competitive handicap on paper but PETITE JACK looks extremely progressive for Neil King having won his last three starts at Lingfield and victory here would possibly seal his spot for the All-Weather Finals back at the Surrey venue on Good Friday. Fattsota has done well on his three starts over timber and looks on a fair mark back on the all-weather, while Dolphin Village and Sennockian Star both hold solid claims.

Verdict

SENNOCKIAN STAR continues in good heart and a quick return to this longer trip can see him resume winning ways. Petite Jack is feared most ahead of Dolphin Village.

Verdict

Nicky Henderson saddles his first ever runner on the Newcastle Tapeta and CLONDAW BANKER has been found a decent opportunity to get back to winning ways. The eight-year-old was pulled up on his reappearance at Wincanton last month but should find this task easier. Codeshare was heavily supported in the betting here four weeks ago but struggled to sustain his effort in the latter stages, while bumper winner After Toniight made a nice debut in this sphere when second in the same race and has to be respected.

Verdict

SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN made a promising first start for this yard when third here last month and looks a big player. Clondaw Banker is fairly useful over jumps and may emerge as the biggest threat.

Course winner. Four wins from 15 runs last year. Latest win here in December. 9/4, creditable second of 5 in handicap at this course (12.4f) 10 days ago, having run of race.

Verdict

Footlight was impressive at Southwell when winning on Richard Fahey's birthday last month despite being friendless in the betting and he should be thereabouts once more, while the consistent High On Light has to be respected once more. Vogueatti remains unexposed but MARIEE ran another excellent race in defeat here 10 days ago and it is likely that she will have come on for it. She has been running admirably against the boys and a mark of 80 might not be enough to stop her back against her own sex.

Verdict

Hard to rule any out, but the unexposed VOGUEATTI wasn't disgraced on handicap debut at Wolverhampton last month, not ideally placed racing wide throughout, and, with that race working out well, she will remain of interest. Victoria Pollard is entitled to come on for last week's reappearance, whilst last-time-out winner Footlight is also considered.

3/1, career best when winning 10-runner handicap at this C&D 27 days ago. On the upgrade recently.

Verdict

PICKETT'S CHARGE seems to be making progress for Richard Guest since switching stables and confirmed that sentiment when claiming a cosy victory here last month. The four-year-old was well on top at the line and a 5lb rise might not be enough to stop him, despite this rise in class. Inaam has a point to prove after being one-paced last time out though he does have the services of Paul Hanagan now, while Worlds His Oyster took advantage of a drop in class last time and will be dangerous once more.

Verdict

WORLDS HIS OYSTER took his form to another level when winning over C&D back from a break 10 days ago and looks up to defying a penalty. Fellow last-time-out winners Pickett's Charge and Shah of Armaan look best of the others.
