FREEDOM FLYER built on his reappearance run when winning for the first time for this yard and first for nearly three years over five furlongs at Thirsk last month. He had plenty in hand on that occasion and he has held his form well since, looming up and looking the likeliest winner over course and distance last time only to be caught late on by one coming from further back. He races from the same mark now and seems sure to launch another bold bid. Kraken Power arrives on the back of a good spell on the all-weather and is feared most ahead of Iain Jardine’s Giselles Izzy.
AL HUSN is a lightly-raced, smart four-year-old filly who won all three of her starts last season, and looked very good when successful in a useful mile and a quarter handicap at Newmarket in October. That form is very solid and she showed herself a pattern-class filly when runner-up to a thriving mare in the Dahlia Stakes on her return earlier this month, shaken up three furlongs out but just unable to go with the winner. The return to this longer trip down in class should suit her well and she sets a pretty good standard for her rivals to aim at. Makinmedoit has a race like this in her and is feared most ahead of Sir Michael Stoute’s Crystal Caprice.
David O’Meara holds a strong hand here and it is eight-year-old HORTZADAR who is taken to come out on top. His last win came at Ripon just over a year ago from an 11lb higher mark and he very much caught the eye on his reappearance back at that track last month, but he was never in a position to land a blow on his latest start at Beverley from a wide draw.
It is probably best to write that run off and he remains very well handicapped on the pick of his form, so it well worth another chance at a track which should suit him better. Stablemate Star Shield was a good winner over course and distance last time and can pose the biggest threat.

MUKER was a useful juvenile in 2020 for Phillip Makin, though he rather lost his way afterwards. However, he was gambled on and shaped better than the bare result at Pontefract last time, set to finish much closer before he got cut off in his run inside the final furlong. He is potentially well treated and is worth persevering with on just his third start for this yard. Be Proud ran quite encouragingly on his reappearance over course and distance a couple of weeks ago and is second choice ahead of Sixcor.
MORNING SUN has made a good start for Keith Dalgleish, finishing a credible third on his debut for the yard in a handicap at Redcar after eight months off, and building on that promise when opening his account over course and distance a couple of weeks ago.
He appeared much happier away from testing conditions that day and won with plenty up his sleeve, so he is taken to follow up following a 6lb rise. Zarabanda shaped quite encouragingly in a competitive Hamilton handicap on her recent reappearance and is feared most ahead of Irish raider Theophilos.
HOSTELRY races off the same mark as when second at Musselburgh at the beginning of last week and may be up to going one better now. Shine On Brendan is another who arrives on the back of a creditable runner-up effort in recent days and should figure again, while the returning Esticky End won on his 2022 reappearance and is another to consider, particularly if the betting vibes are strong.
