There is plenty of recent winning form on display in the Handicap over 5f (due off 5.55pm), but the value lies in siding with handicap debutant GORGEOUS GEEZER, who has been showing ability in maiden company and looks to be on a fair mark of 71.

Martin Smith’s colt made his debut in what was a decent 7f maiden at Lingfield in October and ran better than his finishing position of seventh (of eight runners) would suggest, as he matched strides for a long way with the 94-rated eventual winner Race Day, who was landing a hat-trick.

Dropped back to 6f on his next start at Lingfield, he was held up from a wide draw before staying on well to finish third behind a couple of rivals, who benefited from being ridden more prominently and are now rated 77 and 76. On his latest outing, over 6f at this track, he pulled very hard for the first half of the race but briefly came back on the bridle alongside the impressive winner Soofiah before fading into third, just a neck behind the second.

Based on those efforts, he has a race in him off his current mark and the drop back to the minimum might be just what this speedily son of Kheleyf needs. Robert Winston takes over from a claimer and he can make the most of what is a good draw in stall two. Best of all we get to back him at a tasty 6/1 thanks to the presence of three last-time-out winners in the field.
