Timeform on El Picador
Soul Seeker has already raced twice in the last eight days, finishing second at Haydock and then confirming the promise of that run to go one better at Pontefract on Wednesday. He proved well suited by the drop back to five furlongs on the last occasion, making all to win comfortably by a length and a quarter. He is only 2 lb higher here and should mount a bold follow-up bid if continuing in the same rich vein of form, with more improvement not out of the question on just his fourth start for David O'Meara, who has excelled with his recruits from other yards in the past.
Dragon Symbol showed much improved form to maintain his unbeaten record on handicap debut at Kempton last month, easily defying an opening BHA mark of 85. He was allowed his own way out in front and quickly forged clear from two furlongs out, ultimately winning by five lengths with plenty in hand. That was a smart performance on Timeform ratings which was backed up by the clock, running to a level which comfortably sets the standard in this line-up. With further progress on the cards, Dragon Symbol rates a confident selection to extend his winning sequence to four on the way to bigger and better things.
El Picador ran creditably after six months off when second at Redcar last time, holding every chance a furlong out and sticking to his task well to be beaten only two lengths. That form is already working out well, with the winner following up on her next start and the fifth also winning next-time-out. El Picador is entitled to strip fitter with that outing under his belt, and there is no doubt he is on a good mark judged on the pick of his form. In fact, he produced his best effort of last season at this course, when beaten just a head from 1 lb higher in the weights, so this looks a good opportunity for him to belatedly resume winning ways.
