49-13OR: 70D
2/1

Small-field Hamilton maiden winner last year he's run well in three big-field handicaps this year paying the price for overdoing things in Doncaster 0-80 over 6f. Not in the same form last time down in grade; hard to write off in a 0-70.

39-6OR: 69
20/1

Her two best efforts have come over C&D in minor company both times over 6f but the rest of her form is rather inconsistent and her other two runs this year have been shockers. Now makes her handicap debut; little hard to trust.

7/1

Looks quite nicely weighted on her exploits as a juvenile (won a nursery off 75) but has failed to make any impression for the most part this year. Both her wins last year came over sprint trips and she's only run at 7f and beyond this season.

40/1

Very modest strike-rate of 3-40 with the losing runs starting to stack up now having been tried over a variety of trips for her former yard. Started life with this yard over 5f yesterday and finished 7th; more needed even at this level.

Finally off the mark when scoring at Redcar from 6lb out of the weights and then made it two in a row (took 41 starts to get off the mark). Poor the last twice but has had excuses (once over 5f; struggled with pace) and saddle slipped last time.

C&D winner here early last year off an 11lb lower mark following up shortly after on the AW at Dundalk (6f again); made all both times. Not won since despite some creditable efforts this year; looks held off this mark though.

69-2OR: 59CD
7/1

Course winner whose been kept busy this year with his last four runs coming here mostly over 6f (didn't appreciate the one run over 5f). Ran well in a stronger race than this last time and if the cards fall his way likely to win something like this.

Forecast

Duncan Of Scotland (7/4), Dirchill (2/1), Faithful Promise (7/1), Star Cracker (7/1), Jessie Allan (12/1), Columbia Kid (20/1), Palavicini Run (40/1)

Verdict

Quite an open contest and with the Jim Goldie yard in good form this may be the chance that STAR CRACKER needs to land a race having run well this year and having crept down to a mark just 2lb above his last winning one. Dirchill is another who ought to be winning in this grade and he’s given plenty of respect with Faithful Promise of interest now she’s dropped back to 6f; sprinting looks to suit her much better. Jessie Allan and Duncan Of Scotland will have their supporters but they both need to return to their best form having disappointed of late.
