Struggled on turf of late but mark come down a long way as a result and always dangerous to rule out anything from this leading stable.

Verdict

BEAUDEN BARRETT appears to be improving between runs and is taken to build on his maiden victory over 6f at Lingfield now stepped up in trip on his handicap bow. Capolavoro has been raised 2lb for his near miss over track and trip two weeks ago but has strong place claims. Others to consider are Soaring Spirits, who has been cut some respite by the handicapper, and Personal Touch, who took a step in the right direction when fifth over C&D latest.

Verdict

CAPOLAVORO has a win and a second to his name from 2 previous visits here and is selected to get his head back in front. Recent Lingfield maiden winner Beauden Barrett is unexposed after 2 starts and has obvious potential for better now handicapping, while Magic City has worked his way down to a good mark and took a step back in the right direction last time.

Verdict

VINCENZO COCCOTTI ran on well in the closing stages when scoring over this trip at Chelmsford last time. Ken Cunningham-Brown's four-year-old is 5lb higher here but is a C&D winner that commands respect in his current mood. Dodgy Bob rattled the crossbar in a distance claimer at Leicester and should be thereabouts with a repeat of that effort. The pick of the remainder may be Mallymkun, who is 2lb higher than when striking over track and trip in August.

Verdict

CONSULTING patently failed to stay 1m last time and is well worth another chance to show he's a classy sort for this level back down in trip. The hat-trick seeking Vincenzo Coccotti rates an obvious threat, while Dodgy Bob took a step back in the right direction in claiming-company last time and is well treated if he can build on that having won off 6 lb higher earlier in the year.

10/1 and tongue strap/cheekpieces on for the first time, career best when winning 14-runner handicap at Kempton (8f) 10 days ago.

Verdict

Adrian Brendan Joyce has had two winners from just seven runners at this venue when travelling over from Ireland and the booking of Shane Foley for COACH BOMBAY suggests that a fair effort is expected from the eight-year-old. A mark of 56 is there to be defied and he caught the eye at Dundalk last time out, travelling well at the back under mostly hands and heels under his inexperienced rider. Kubeba remains on a career-low mark and ran well on reappearance last time, while Caledonia Laird is also considered.

Verdict

COACH BOMBAY can boast a good AW record, and having caught the eye on last month's return to action, is expected to step up on that back sporting his usual headgear combination. Win Lose Draw is forced into a better race courtesy of an easy win last week, but should remain competitive, with Caledonia Laird another to note.

Verdict

Adam Kirby is often the man that powerful connections turn to on the all-weather when they want to win a maiden and it is no great surprise to see Al Shaqab reach for the Grade 1-winning rider. GETNA ran a race full of promise at Lingfield in October in a strong maiden and the 250,000 euros purchase should make a bold bid to get off the mark. Flaming Marvel was a promising second on debut at large odds and should go well, while Bois De Boulogne sports cheekpieces on debut and is likely to know his job.

Verdict

FLAMING MARVEL shaped with plenty of promise on debut over C&D 3 weeks ago and he rates the type to do much better with that experience under his belt. Getna is another interesting runner who is also open to improvement, while Bois de Boulogne makes most appeal of the newcomers.

Verdict

SUTTER COUNTY burst onto the scene with an impressive nine-length victory over track and trip on debut in March and although he seemed to lose his way in the summer, he returned to form when narrowly touched off in a similar contest at Newcastle last month. A repeat of that latest effort may well suffice unless Godolphin representative Dubai One or William Haggas inmate Gheedaa can step up on the level of form they've shown in handicaps and run well above their rating.

Verdict

It's hard to ignore the claims of SUTTER COUNTY on these terms and he will be hard to beat if running to form. There are a bunch on potential improvers pitched in against him though, with the pick perhaps being William Haggas' Gheedaa, though Visionary and Rozy Boys shouldn't be overlooked, either.
