Verdict

5f risks proving too sharp for VJ Day, and SECRETFACT gets the nod instead to improve his 80% strike-rate over C&D yet further.

Vj Day
J: Callum Shepherd
T: Martyn Meade
Two wins from six runs this year, the gelding arrives here having won at Windsor last time out. Has been raised just a pound for that victory, so another big run cannot be discounted.
Windsor win on stable debut is working out really well; drop to 5f is the main concern.

Won at Brighton back in July, and while the gelding hasn’t won since he’s run well in some better races. After finishing fourth in Class 2 company last time out, beaten just a length by the winner, he’s not one to dismiss lightly.
Dual Brighton scorer this summer on ground as fast as he'll likely get here; respected.

One win from seven runs on the level, the filly comes into this race off the back of a respectable third at Newmarket last time out. A repeat of that may see her go well, though she’ll need to pull out more to come home in front.
Not continue progress after two spring 2018 wins (5f); back below last winning mark now.

Finished eighth of fourteen when last seen, though that was at Class 3 level. From a pound lower in the weights, the gelding could do better now back in Class 4 company. That said, he remains four pounds above his last winning mark.
Three 5f-6f wins at Southwell/Chelmsford; been a bit too lit up in headgear previously.

Arrives here having finished a respectable third of six at Kempton last time out, while the gelding has some other useful pieces of form to his name too. It’s been a while since he last came home in front, but he’s now fifteen pounds below his last winning mark. Dangerous to dismiss.
Hard to win with nowadays, more so on turf; place prospects off lowest ever mark, though.

Got his head in front at Wolverhampton six weeks ago, though he’s not been in the same form since, despite only being given a two-pound rise for that victory. Needs to bounce back after a weak effort at Windsor a fortnight ago.
4-5 over C&D (two wins on firm) and excuses of sorts elsewhere the last twice; chance.

Visited the winner’s enclosure at Wolverhampton a month ago, winning well in this class, though the assessor prevented further success last time out by hitting the mare with a seven-pound rise. Is likely to struggle again from this mark.
Triple Bath scorer on firm; scored on Tapeta two runs ago also; 0-3 in class 4, however.

Won nicely at Haydock on his penultimate start, but it’s fair to say that the handicapper took a dim view of that success. Failed to compete from eight pounds higher in the weights last time out. Can now be opposed.
Haydock win two runs ago on first drop to 5f; must hope easy ground explains flop since.

It’s been a while since the gelding last got his head in front, though his mark has fallen considerably in recent times, while he hinted at a revival when finishing second at Chepstow last time out. From a lowly mark, he’s not one to dismiss lightly.
Looks to have found his present level; 1l second off same mark last time (good to firm).

Has been struggling of late, despite falling considerably in the weights. Failed to get involved at Salisbury in June, while his effort when finishing fifth of six at Brighton last time out was also displeasing. Is potentially well handicapped, though he needs to improve on recent efforts.
Dual C&D scorer, including off much higher in July 2017; some way below his best latterly.
