712-0OR: 106BF
5/2

Ran well when second to the useful Court Dismissed at Worcester in July but not so good on reappearance at Perth last month, and heavy ground shouldn't have been a problem. Only one win in 15 starts and although chance is there, not one to trust.

10/3

Yet to win in 11 starts, and has had his opportunities. Disappointing again when well beaten behind Strumble Head at Perth and although conditions here fine, needs to dig in better when the pressure's applied.

4/1

Tries hard and was a winner here when getting the better of the game That's The Deal in May. Handles the track and likely ground isn't an issue, but this trip will test his stamina to the limit. May face competition for the lead too.

9/2

Only the one win in 20 starts but on the plus side, that did come here and there are other good efforts at the track to his name. Yard yet to catch fire this season, which is a concern, but should run his race at least.

25/1

Veteran that had a superb time of it last year, his sound jumping proving a valuable asset, and was spotted doing some good late work at Southwell last time. On a winnable mark and may be about to strike again.

Looks very regressive and well beaten on most of his recent starts, showing very little at Towcester last week. Hard to make any sort of case for.

Often travels well in his races only to find less than expected when push comes to shove. Did at least show he gets this trip when second to King's Song at Southwell in the summer but others still look more convincing.

Going nowhere fast and races from a stone out of the handicap here. No realistic chance of success and others readily preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Ballypoint (5/2), Florida Calling (10/3), Hepijeu (4/1), Trojan Star (9/2), Sirius Star (17/2), Larkhall (14/1), That's The Deal (25/1), Seymour Legend (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these have a question mark of some sort or other against them, and despite the advancing years THAT'S THE DEAL might be able to see there off at a track he seems to go well at. He jumps for fun on a going day and might take a bit of pegging back. Trojan Star might be best of the rest, with Ballypoint and Florida Calling fighting it out for the minors.
