Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Winner at Wolverhampton back in November 2018, but he has not been seen since finishing a modest fifth at Chelmsford in the December of that year. Still yet to defy a rating this high and he is entitled to need today’s comeback run.
Not seen since December 2018; market may be the best indicator as to what is expected.

5 x C&D Winner - Won 5 times before on this course at this distance
Course Specialist - 5 wins from 6 starts here (83%)
Winner of course and distance handicaps the last twice, coming with a strong late run to score latest. That brought his record at this venue to an impressive 5-6, and Andrea Atzeni is now booked to ride for the first time; should go close.
Form figures over C&D read 111611; 7lb higher mark may not be enough to stop him.

Runner-up in a French Listed race back in December 2018, but he has not been seen since finishing tailed off in the Esher Cup at Sandown last April. Gelded prior to making his reappearance today, but he is entitled to come on for the run.
Not seen since losing his action at Sandown last April; has been gelded in the meantime.

Hot Recent Form Trainer - 4 wins from 16 in the last 14 days (25%)
Bounced back from an underwhelming run at Wolverhampton when runner-up in a Southwell handicap last time out. Joe Fanning now takes over, and he should benefit from the step up to 1m2f; shortlisted.
Found only one too good at Southwell last month; still to prove he wants this far.

Cold Recent Form Trainer - 0 wins from 10 in the last 14 days (0%)
Held in all four starts since returning from a break, finishing fourth in a Class 4 handicap latest. Back up in class today, which clearly demands more, but his current mark is not beyond him and the booking of Silvestre De Sousa looks a notable one.
Only won two of his last 36 starts so may find one or two too good.

J: Darragh Keenan 3
T: John Ryan
Respectable fourth over this course and distance last month, but he has failed to beat a rival home in his two starts since. Now just two pounds above his last winning mark, and his yard is going great guns, but others look more reliable options.
Not had much go right since returned to Polytrack and may not get the solid pace he needs.

Verdict

Despite a 7lb higher mark this looks a good opportunity for EL GHAZWANI to enhance his already impressive record over C&D.
