9/4

Won twice in 2017, including over C&D on reappearance. All three efforts this term have fallen long way short of what is required however.

9/4

Won this race in 2015, hasn't scaled the heights so far this year but two most recent efforts were more positive and on a very handy mark now should he put it all together back at this track.

Experienced performer, scored over a mile on the AW at Newcastle in January but has struggled since then, including last of six over C&D last month. Drops in grade and has been given a chance by the assessor seemingly.

5/1

All three career starts have come here, including a win over this trip in novice company in middle outing (sent off 28/1). Didn't repeat trick since and opening handicap mark ask a question.

7/2

Steady progress in three qualifying runs ahead of this handicap debut, culminating in neck second in a low-grade C&D novice contest last time. Could improve again, needs to.

Betting

Forecast

Corton Lad (9/4), Visitant (9/4), Home Before Dusk (7/2), Rock N Rolla (4/1), Glasses Up (5/1), Testa Rossa (17/2)

Verdict

CORTON LAD has shown improved signs in two recent runs and is on a more than workable handicap mark as he bids to win this race for the second time in four years, his experience may prove a big asset now. Handicaps debutants Home Before Dusk and Glasses Up are respected as is Testa Rossa, who drops in class and has been cut some slack by the handicapper.
