4/1

Successful twice from nine career starts including in a claimer over an extended 1m at Wovlerhampton last month. Beaten 6L off this mark over C&D last time out but remains of interest today.

7/2

Career best effort came when finishing third over 6f at Wolverhampton last month. One to note despite having stamina to prove stepping up in trip on today's handicap debut.

Dual winner for Richard Fahey including over 7f at Southwell in a claimer in November. Well held there on debut for this yard at the start of this month and more needed today.

Finished runner-up in two 7f handicap contests at Lingfield last month. Not beaten far over 1m here subsequently and is an interesting runner today.

Signs of ability on the second of three starts in novice company last year. Stepping up in trip for today's handicap debut having finished fifth over 7f at Chelmsford last time out.

6/1

Ran well to finish runner-up over 7f at Chester (good) in August and put a disappointing effort behind him when 2L third over 1m at Pontefract (soft) on handicap debut in October. Returning from a break today.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: R Havlin |  T: S & E Crisford|  OR: 68
7/1

Maiden after 11 starts and put in his best effort so far when 1L second in a 1m maiden handicap at Southwell last time out. Races off a 2lb higher mark today and vulnerable to less exposed rivals.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-3  |  J: Fran Berry |  T: G L Moore|  OR: 67
14/1

Made a promising debut when runner-up in a 6f novice contest at Goodwood (soft) in October but has proven a disappointment since including in handicap company the last twice.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-2  |  J: M Dwyer |  T: M P Tregoning|  OR: 66|  BF
12/1

Fair form in three starts in novice contests but well held on handicap debut upped to 1m2f last week and cheekpieces worn on that occasion are absent today.

Betting

Forecast

Rose Tinted Spirit (7/2), Carp Kid (4/1), Normandy Blue (6/1), Far Dawn (7/1), Haverland (7/1), Corazon Espinado (12/1), Barnay (12/1), Golden Image (12/1), Is It Off (14/1), Black Medusa (14/1), Powerful Society (14/1)

Verdict

CARP KID has been running well of late and can register his first handicap victory by taking this competitive 1m contest off top weight today. The selections two previous successes have come in selling and claiming company but he ran well behindan impressive winner last time and can take this at the chief expense of handicap debutant Rose Tinted Spirit who was staying on over 6f on his most recent outing. The first time blinkered Golden Image finished just behind the selection last time out and can finish third today.
  1. Carp Kid
  2. Rose Tinted Spirit
  3. Golden Image
