Timeform Daily: Tuesday, Leicester 16:50

Richard Fahey trains Common Touch.

Timeform look ahead to an interesting seven furlong handicap at Leicester on Tuesday...

Common Touch bounced back to form in cheekpieces when winning at Newmarket last month and is fancied to follow up...

Bronze Prince landed the International Stakes in 2011 for John Gosden, and back to winning ways at Lingfield (1m) in May. Well below form in hot handicaps since but at least won't find this as competitive.

Head of Steam won 3 times over sprint trips in France, and stepped up significantly from comeback run for new yard when fourth in 7f Newbury handicap last time. Interesting to see how he progresses.

Albaqaa won pair of big-field handicaps last summer. Made slow start to the year but shaping better now, having excuses last 3 runs. 1m+ suits him ideally, however.

White Frost reeled off a hat-trick in 7f handicaps first 3 starts in 2011, and right back to best when second at York in July. Below form in hood last 2 starts, though.

Ducal was progressive for Sir Mark Prescott and continued in same vein for this yard, winning 3 times on AW and running well at Goodwood last 2 starts. Probably wouldn't want ground too fast, though.

Common Touch progressed well in 2011, winning twice over 7f at York. Slow start to year but back to form in cheekpieces when winning handicap at Newmarket last time. That form is working out well and respected.

Sea Soldier got off the mark at the fourth attempt in maidens over this trip at Warwick last summer. Not seen since shaping with some promise on return in April but is still lightly raced for a 4-y-o.

Kingscroft won 7 times last year. Served notice he was coming back to boil when good neck second at Catterick in June, and might have found next 2 runs coming too soon. Not ruled out on return from break.

Democretes was a dual scorer at 2 yrs and some respectable efforts in handicaps at Newmarket this term. Not dismissed dropped another 1 lb.

Amazing Amoray was a maiden winner here (6f) at 3 yrs and shaped well on return from lay-off when fourth in handicap over C&D last week, making most. Worth considering on that despite 1 lb out of weights.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Common Touch
2. Kingscroft
3. Head of Steam

Timeform Verdict: Common Touch bounced back to form in cheekpieces when winning at Newmarket last month and is fancied to follow up with that form receiving several boosts since. Kingscroft, Head of Steam and Amazing Amoray complete the shortlist.
