Backing seemingly unlucky losers in handicaps isn't always the wisest policy, especially at this level when the horse in question has since been gelded, but it's hard to ignore the claims of WIFF WAFF whose latest C&D fourth has been boosted subsequently. Cherry Oak, who's returning from a similar break and whose latest C&D fourth has also been boosted, rates the main danger.[Graham Wheldon]

Some effort to get as close as he did over C&D last time, given he reared at the stalls and was drawn away from the action (since gelded); second and third boosted the effort since and obvious claims.

Signs of ability on turf and up to winning off this mark on the evidence of two AW handicap efforts; latest C&D fourth boosted by the front pair since and has to go on the shortlist.

Drop to this trip didn't look ideal on Fibresand last time and exposed now; previously held off this mark on his handicap debut.

More since switched to the AW and better off into handicap company, but will need to find a bit more from somewhere if she's to break her duck.

Went backwards once handicapping for Tony Carroll and an ordinary debut for new yard on Fibresand last week; experienced 7lb claimer won't hurt but best efforts come on fast turf.

Trainer has a poor record with 2yos and she offered little at big prices in early runs; bit better since handicapping at a lowly level but clear limitations.
