Prominent racer who took a 1m4f classified claimer by just over 2L at Catterick in early June. Has run respectably twice again since and it may be that this longer trip will help now.

Slowly coming to hand since joining this yard from Gary Moore earlier in the summer. Best run so far when close second at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) last time. Shapes like this longer trip will suit and has sound claims.

Has been slowly coming to hand this year and is coming down the weights. Third but still beaten a fair way at Nottingham just five days ago. Would probably prefer some cut in the ground to be at this best.

9/1

Decent chaser on his day but his flat form has been uninspiring so far. Tailed off on handicap debut last time at Newcastle (1m4½f, AW). Step up in trip should help but races off the same mark here and hard to fancy at present.

7/4

All out to record back-to-back wins at Redcar over this trip last time. Up another 5lbs for that win makes life tougher in the quest for the hat-trick. Comes here in rude health which is more than can be said for a few of these so leading contender

Interesting handicap debutant who has been outpaced in three races over shorter and seems to have been run with handicaps in mind. Luke Morris takes over and interesting to see if the money comes off a workable mark.

Struggled on almost on his starts to date and races from a long way out of the weights here. Likely to find this very tough going.

Betting

Forecast

Indian Vision (7/4), Sheriff Garrett (5/2), Be Perfect (5/1), Searching (11/2), Archive (9/1), Four Champs (33/1), Archipentura (50/1), Keynote (100/1)

Verdict

Be Perfect may benefit from going up in trip and is certainly respected, especially if able to get a soft lead. Indian Vision has been in rude health and comes here chasing a realistic hat-trick so is very much feared. We will take a chance on the switch to handicaps and stepping up in trip being of major benefit to FOUR CHAMPS. He looks on a workable mark and gets the services of Luke Morris today.

  2. Indian Vision
