Beaten 19L on stable debut at Pontefract on return and not much better at Thirsk on Saturday. Tough to build a case for.

Winner on handicap debut at Musselburgh last time out, and 3lb rise for that victory seems fair. Same trip here and is open to improvement.

Ran a solid race on seasonal return at Thirsk last time out, and drop back in trip here shouldn't be an issue as he won over this distance last year. Just 3lb higher in the weights now.

Not the worst overall strike-rate, but hasn't been at her best for most of the past year or so, including when well-beaten on return at Hamilton last time.

Makes his seasonal return here for a new trainer, having won a few times last season, but possible a bit high in the weights to show his best here.

Winner at Doncaster last time, the first of his career, and though not proven on this better ground, he was value for further than the single length margin of victory.

15lb lower than his last winning mark but hasn't been able to take advantage of that rating so far this year, including when down the field at Musselburgh last time out.

Though he hasn't yet been able to build on a handicap win at Musselburgh last August he's back down to 2lb above now and should enjoy the ground.

Betting

Forecast

Presidential (5/2), Sureyoutoldme (5/2), Mywayistheonlyway (9/2), Golden Guest (9/1), Zoravan (10/1), Circuit Judge (12/1), Dasheen (14/1), Alexandrakollontai (14/1), Relight My Fire (16/1)

Verdict

Presidential is in good form having won at Doncaster last time, but the suggestion is SUREYOUTOLDME, who is the subject of a very fair 3lb rise for winning on handicap debut at Musselburgh earlier in the month and can build on that excellent performance to go 2-2 in handicaps here. Relight My Fire could be third best.
