Verdict

HIDDEN GEM lost nothing in defeat when finishing a one-length second over this trip at Chelmsford last time out and is expected to remain competitive while running off the same rating. C&D winner Binky Blue should appreciate the return to 7f, having been outpaced over 6f here earlier in the month, though the main danger to the selection may be Wink Oliver who caught the eye here last time.

Verdict

BINKY BLUE and Hidden Gem look the 2 to focus on, with the former preferred having shaped better than the result last time. Wink Oliver can't be written off, either.

100,000 gns 2-y-o, Helmet colt. Promising type. Second of 12 in maiden at Kempton (7f, 5/2) on debut 14 days ago. Will take the beating.

Verdict

TRICORN sets the form standard on his distance second on debut at Kempton and is expected to put the experience gained to good use to strike second time out. Invincible Man is improving between runs and drops back in trip after finishing third over 1m at Kempton. Groundskeeperwillie is entitled to come on for his debut spin here recently and could also play a minor role.

Verdict

The well-bred TRICORN shaped well despite looking very green at Kempton 2 weeks ago, staying on to take second. He looks sure to progress and gets the nod to make it second time lucky. Invincible Man can take the forecast spot.

Creditable second of 7 in handicap (14/1) at Lingfield (13f, AW) 14 days ago. Cheekpieces on 1st time.

Verdict

FAST PLAY had three lengths in hand at the line when scoring over 1m4f here latest and is expected to remain competitive over this longer trip now turned out swiftly under a penalty. Hallstat and Oratorio's Joy's recent victories have come in claimers, and of more interest is Vosne Romanee, a 139-rated hurdler that is potentially very well treated on the level running off a mark of 72.

Verdict

VOSNE ROMANEE developed into a useful hurdler when last seen in the spring, and returning from a break, looks well-in back on the AW representing an excellent yard. Fast Play made the perfect start for new connections here on Saturday and is the obvious threat under a penalty.

Verdict

Fethiye Boy will likely attract support as he's turned out under a penalty for his recent victory at Chelmsford City. However, he held on by a head that day and may end up setting this up for David O'Meara's handicap debutant SCHOOL RUN, for whom a mark of 62 appears workable. Southwell second Not Now Nadia switches surface and cuts back in trip and could also take a hand.

Verdict

ZANDRADEE shaped better than the bare result on handicap debut at Newcastle recently, keeping on whilst still looking in need of the experience. She could be worth chancing to prove sharper now, with Royal Celebration and Fethiye Boy others to consider.

One win from 3 runs last year. 8/1, career best when winning 5-runner handicap at Newcastle (8f) 7 days ago, very much having run of race.

Verdict

BOOST justified short odds when winning a 6f course maiden when last sighted and is expected to build on that performance now starting life in handicaps off an opening mark of 77 and now also stepped up to 7f for the first time. Blaze Of Glory went close off this mark in a higher grade latest and has place claims, likewise C&D maiden winner Fear The Fury, for whom the booking of Jamie Spencer by the Karl Burke team catches the eye.

Verdict

BLAZE OF GLORY, Fear The Fury and Boost are a trio of upwardly-mobile 3-y-o handicappers so this is a race to view positively despite the field size. Separating them isn't easy, but the first-named runner was unable to show his true worth last time, but his impressive maiden win prior to that is backed up by the clock, so he shades the verdict.

Verdict

HEARTSTONE wouldn't be the first to run below par at Newcastle but she has been in good form generally over the last few weeks and her course second to Absolute Blast in early January looks particularly strong form. She looks worth another chance. Favorite Girl has been raised 2lb for her neck victory over C&D latest and is considered the main danger ahead of Rowlestone Lass, who blew away a few cobwebs when returning from a long absence here last month.

Verdict

ROWLESTONE LASS showed enough on last month's C&D return from a lengthy absence to think she retains a good portion of her ability, and if that is the case, the assessor has certainly given her a chance. The booking of George Baker is a sign of intent, so she is selected in favour of last-time-out winner Favorite Girl.
