Off the mark in 7f Kempton novice in January and solid placed efforts off this mark at Chester and Haydock (both good to soft) the last twice. Still, some of these appear to possess greater potential.

Still seeking first taste of success (0-11), but has found just one too good with cheekpieces enlisted in 7f handicaps at Newmarket and Yarmouth the last twice. Should make his presence felt.

Opened his account at the seventh time of asking in 8.6f Wolverhampton handicap. 5 lb rise fair enough, but needs to prove that he can match that form returned to turf and back at 7f.

Improved with each of his 3 starts as a juvenile, close third in 6f Kempton novice when last seen in October. Gelded since and moving back up in trip for this handicap debut will be in his favour.

Failed to go on from an encouraging start here as a 2yo, but step back in the right direction when fourth on return/handicap bow at Newmarket (7f, good to soft). However, this looks a tougher race.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Dropping back to 7f may not prove to be an issue for THE WHIPMASTER on this stiff track, and the progressive gelding is taken to complete the hat-trick with Ryan Moore again in the hot-seat. Dashing Dick and Ower Starlight may emerge as the main dangers.

Betting Forecast

3/1 The Whipmaster (Ire), 13/2 Melody Of Life (Ire), 6/1 Dashing Dick (Ire), 8/1 Shuv H'penny King, 14/1 Mojandil (Ire), 12/1 Mutaraafeq (Ire), 16/1 Tell'em Nowt, 10/1 Ower Starlight, 22/1 Prospect, 40/1 Royal Tribute (Ire), 28/1 G'daay
