5/1

Ran a couple of decent races in quick succession this month over 7f at Chelmsford and Ffos Las but 5lb rise looks harsh in the extreme and is likely to make this beyond him.

20/1

Triple figure prices in all four starts but repaid EW backers latest when third at 200/1. Handicapper taken a dim view of that although on the bare form she now must enter calculations.

16/1

Not built on Windsor success on debut back in June. Disappointing again latest as she was in first handicap try. Mark is falling but doubt she takes advantage.

12/1

Unplaced in all six career starts to date, the last twice in 7f AW handicaps. Slightly better last time suggesting that with this latest 2lb ease she could be involved.

13/8

Left previous efforts behind latest when only going down by ½L in a C&D handicap. Raised 3lb for the effort but given lightly raced profile he can improve again and looks a leading contender here.

8/1

6L behind Corazon Espinado latest over C&D with no obvious excuse. That did come after a break however and 5lb better off with that rival today so expecting the gap to be smaller.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: A Kirby |  T: E A L Dunlop|  OR: 64
10/1

Soundly beaten in all four starts to date including handicap debut when eighth of nine at Chelmsford. Expensive breeze-up purchase but looking increasingly unlikely to get near expected levels.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-1  |  J: L Morris |  T: C Hills|  OR: 59
9/1

Showed limited ability in maidens in the summer before stepping into a handicap latest when sixth of seven at Ffos Las. Had a break since and encounters very different surface today.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: Kieren Fox |  T: M J Attwater|  OR: 55
20/1

Steps into handicaps now after three runs in maidens with her latest 9½L fifth of 11 the best of them. Not been treated too badly by the handicapper and probably improve again.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-7  |  J: Nicola Currie |  T: Steph Hollinshead|  OR: 51
40/1

Midfield runs hinted at some promise a couple of starts back but latest 23L last of 14 at Southwell gets the alarm bells ringing very loudly.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-7  |  J: P Mathers |  T: R A Fahey|  OR: 51
8/1

Never in contention in three AW novice events to date. Steps into handicaps with very low rating and trainer fits the blinkers now but leap of faith required to get involved.

12
(4)
Age: 2|  Weight: 8-1  |  J: K T O'Neill |  T: W J Knight|  OR: 45
25/1

Beaten 8¾L when eighth of 12 on handicap debut at Chelmsford last month after a break. Showed little in maidens before that and hard to recommend here.

Betting

Forecast

Corazon Espinado (13/8), Bezos (5/1), Isoletta (8/1), Amadeus (8/1), Dark Freedom (9/1), Conflagration (10/1), Hollywood Dream (12/1), Boomerang Betty (16/1), Lady Of Authority (20/1), Free Talkin (20/1), Royal Wave (25/1), Kylie Style (40/1)

Verdict

CORAZON ESPINADO ran a cracking race latest when second over C&D. That is the standout recent form here so he gets the vote. Lady Of Authority ran a fine race latest at 200/1. She will be a fraction of that price today and is interesting stepping into handicaps. Conflagration is proving a huge disappointment given his 370,000 gns purchase price but is given one last chance to show something now upped to 7f.
  1. Corazon Espinado
  2. Lady Of Authority
  3. Conflagration
