Timeform on Dazzling Darren

Back
Desert Caravan - 13:50 Wolverhampton

Desert Caravan made a good impression when making a winning debut at Newcastle earlier this month and is taken to defy a penalty now. Admittedly, that wasn't the deepest race, but he won with much more in hand than the one and a half length margin suggests, overcoming greenness and an emphasis on speed. He boast a good middle-distance pedigree, and will improve further when going up in trip next year, but this race seemingly hasn't much depth to it and he should be able to defy a penalty.

Lay
Juge Et Parti - 14:00 Plumpton

Juge Et Parti made the perfect start for Archie Watson when winning a maiden hurdle at Hereford earlier this month, showing a good attitude to prevail by four and a half lengths. That wasn't the strongest event, though, and there is a chance he could be overbet here.

Dazzling Darren - 13:20 Wolverhampton

£88.50 - Adam West's profit to a £1 level stake when having one runner at a Flat meeting

Schumli will look well treated if turned out quickly under a penalty following her win over seven furlongs here on Saturday evening, but it could be worth chancing Dazzling Darren, who reacted well to first-time cheekpieces on handicap debut at Kempton last time. That was his first run for eight weeks, and he shaped better than the bare result, too, hampered early and short of room two furlongs from home. He remains unexposed and should be capable of winning a race of this nature.
