8/1
Admirable sort who has had a wonderful winter winning four times. Found higher mark all too much though at Carlisle (2m, heavy) last time and has to give weight away all round here. Tough task.

Still 4lbs higher than when winning at Perth just over a year ago. Wasn't as good on only other start since and has been off the track for almost a year. Likely to need this run.

Veteran who had a decent spell before the turn of the year. Not completely out of things off this mark and a return to this better ground will suit. Back from a four month break.

Returned to form at Kelso (2m1f, heavy) last time which coincided with the yards runners going much better. Nudged up 1lb for that but has won off this mark and a likely player once again.

Tends to save his best efforts for Sedgefield these days and showed a little more there last time. Is now 2lb lower than for last win and it's hard to completely dismiss him.

5/1
Won at Hexham and Musselburgh earlier this term and again went well when narrowly beaten over 2m4f at Musselburgh two starts back. Disappointing at Kelso on heavy ground next time and much better expected back on this better ground.

In winning form at Musselburgh back in November but has been largely disappointing since. Has now dropped below that last winning mark as a result and could be a danger to all if he's on a going day.

9/2
Veteran performer who has won nine times over fences/hurdles. Reappearance run at Musselburgh (1m7½f, good to soft) was pretty weak and has since been off for another three months. Needs to do more.

Pretty inconsistent performer and you never know quite what you are going to get. Chance from a handicapping point of view and if ready to go on the back of a five month break.

19-race maiden who is running here from way out the weights and off a lengthly break. Likely to need the run and will find this tough going.

Betting

Forecast

Halcyon Days (4/1), Sleep In First (9/2), John Williams (5/1), Trust Thomas (13/2), Dica (8/1), Endless Credit (9/1), Indian Voyage (9/1), Civil Unrest (12/1), Brother Scott (14/1), Warksburn Boy (50/1)

Verdict

Dica has been running with much credit over the winter and is likely to give it another good shot despite his big weight. Halcyon Days returned to form last time and will be a danger to all if in a similar mood off just a 1lb higher mark. Trust Thomas has dropped to a dangerous mark and market moves should be noted but preference is for JOHN WILLIAMS. The ground went against him at Kelso last time and he can make a return to winning ways back on this better ground today.
  1. John Williams
  2. Halcyon Days
  3. Dica
