3.35 Nottingham, Wednesday, October 18

The Kier Property Handicap (3.35) at Nottingham on Wednesday is a competitive heat for the grade, but may provide Indian Chief with the opportunity to make amends for a luckless run over course and distance last week.

Rebecca Bastiman’s 7-year-old was only fifth of 10, beaten 2¼ lengths, on that occasion, but was galloping all over the opposition in the final three furlongs, only to be left with nowhere to go, and finished hard on the steel. A week previously, the Montjeu gelding had suffered an interrupted passage when failing by just a short head to overhaul Compton Mill over course and distance – with the reliable yardstick Silver Ghost back in third – and, on 1lb better terms, has every chance of reversing the form.

Indian Chief has been raised 3lb for his most recent effort but, granted that he almost certainly would have won with a clear run, he looks attractively handicapped. He’s done all his winning on soft, or good to soft, going and is reunited with Daniel Tudhope, who won on him at Hamilton in September, so he looks sure to be popular.

Selection: Nottingham 3.35 Indian Chief to win 10/1
