7 yo Mare

OR: 61

Form & Verdict
Has nine wins (two here) to her name from 40 career starts, all between late June and September; has never done it off a mark quite this high but she's only 1lb higher than at Brighton this month (7f, good to firm) and has every chance of following up.

Form & Verdict
Often fluffs the start and it's cost him in two runs back this summer; three wins all came on the AW, latterly off 4lb lower, but he acts on turf and just needs to brush things up at the stalls.

Triple AW winner including two over 7f on Polytrack; got back on the scoresheet over 1m at Brighton (cheekpieces applied) in August but that was a very narrow success and he's not come close to that form in two runs (turf/Tapeta) since; others preferred.

Maiden who's been running in sprints this year (past twice over 5f), finishing last each time; the handicapper is easing off quickly but she has it to prove, going without cheekpieces this time.

Eased after being hampered on her turf debut in May and looked worth another try over this trip at Newmarket in June (6f, good); this is less competitive down another 2lb and she remains lightly raced.

J: Mohammed Tabti

Off the mark on 12th start for Sean Woods by 6l at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm) in August and, despite a 10lb rise, has run well in both starts since joining this yard, including when second of 15 back at Yarmouth (7f, good to soft) nine days ago; due to go up another 3lb and likely to go well.

11/4

Betting Forcast

9/4 Spanish Mane, 7/2 Split Elevens, 20/1 Thakrah, 6/1 Mr Fayez, 5/1 Miss Candy, 5/1 Shalfa, 10/1 Elsaab

Verdict

Spanish Mane is the proven winner in the field, with the four 3yos all maidens, and she looks set to go well again, but SHALFA (nap) has slid to a handy mark and should appreciate the drop back in distance switched from cheekpieces to blinkers. Anyone backing Split Elevens will want to hold their breath as the stalls open.[Graham Wheldon]
