THOUGHTSOGSTARDOM looks overpriced at the forecast odds now below his last winning mark so we'll take the risk and give him the verdict with Brynfa Boy and Fromsong also making the list in a tight looking handicap. With over one hundred races under the saddle the pick has had plenty of success here winning four times. His latest win was over this trip at Kempton in January off a mark of 66 so now allowed to go off here rated 64 he has every chance under the jockey who got him up for his last two successes. Brynfa Boy has had more recent wins scoring on his last two starts including on his course debut the last time we saw him. That was easy enough and he should improve again so if on top form once more he could be hard to beat. Fromsong has a likeable profile and should be seen to good effect under a burden just two pounds heavier than when he last scored while Raymond Ridge can be added to the list after some good form and with his yard getting plenty of success from limited runners this winter. Silver Prelude and Chjimes are a further pair that should be in the shake-up but we'll go for some value and Thoughtsofstardom.
