From a cracking family and could do better now handicapping, the drop to 1m looking a good move. Headgear goes on and one to consider under Fallon.

Off the mark beating a subsequent winner in 7f Leicester maiden last month, staying on to lead close home. Revised mark looks fair back in a handicap and this return to 1m will suit. One to consider.

Won 7f Kempton nursery in September and should have come on for last month's return there. Cheekpieces (worn for that success) back on replacing blinkers and could go well.

Won at Ascot (6f) last year and better effort this year after a wind op in 7f handicap here 10 days ago. Mark fallen further and also has promising 5 lb claimer up for first time. Should stay 1m.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Leicester-winner WILD HERO still looks reasonably treated back in a handicap and should go well again, with the return to 1m likely to suit. Formality and Calatrava are among the leading dangers.

Betting Forecast

7/2 Calatrava (Ire), 12/1 Formality, 14/1 Tippler, 25/1 Fanzone (Ire), 5/2 Wild Hero (Ire), 20/1 Goodwood Rebel (Ire), 12/1 Pitchcombe, 8/1 Rhyme Scheme (Ire), 10/1 Cosmic Power (Ire)
