There’s some decent handicap action at York on Friday, where Juanito Chico can make amends for a disappointing trip to Epsom a fortnight ago.

William Jarvis’ four-year-old never recovered from a slow start in the concluding handicap on Oaks day, and just for good measure was badly hampered when trapped on the inside rail.

The handicapper has relented slightly, and David Egan is booked here for the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Handicap (3.30) where he should go close if bouncing back to form off a mark of 89, dropping into class three company.

Juanito Chico won that same Epsom race 12 months ago, and he’s been beaten by some smart animals since in the form of Parfait, Addeybb and D’bai. Back on a sounder surface, I’m expecting a big improvement and he could just be the answer in this tricky 20-runner affair.

Sandra’s Secret can rack up the hat-trick in the EBF Breeders Series Fillies’ Handicap (4.40).

Les Eyre’s five-year-old has recently won back-to-back class three handicaps at Ripon over six furlong, making all on both occasions to win unchallenged under Silvestre de Sousa.

The champion jockey has seven rivals to deal with at York and the handicapper has put her up 7lb but this doesn’t look as strong as that Ripon race, which featured five rivals rated in the 90s, and I’m hoping Sandra’s Secret will have too much speed here to prevail.

In the Coopers Marquees Apprentice Handicap (5.15), Dominada is interesting after a long absence for Brian Ellison.

The six-year-old was a admirable performer when last seen on the flat during 2016, winning at Catterick and Musselburgh before registering three wins over hurdles.

Dominada hasn’t been sighted for 419 days and fitness must be taken on trust, but he’d have a good chance here off his last winning mark of 79 if tuned up by Ellison, with Ben Robinson in the plate.

Finally, down at Chepstow I like the look of Native Soldier in the Hicks Logistics Handicap (9.05) who has become well handicapped on his best form.

Now a four-year-old, Native Solider won a maiden and a Newbury handicap off 75 for William Haggas last July before switching to John Flint’s yard.

Three subsequent starts didn’t yield much but each were run on soft ground and there’s a good chance the bay gelding doesn’t handle much cut.

Three runs on the all-weather since have been his mark drop to 66, some 13b lower than where he began life in handicaps just over a year ago. Aaron Jones claims a handy 3lb and if bouncing back to his best Native Soldier could have a serious chance of upsetting the likely favourite, Bid Adieu.
