5/4

Has come into his own during this dry spell. Heavily eased when defying a 6lb penalty on Tuesday and if conditions remain quick then the hat-trick looks on.

Current mark and a return to 7f revealed obvious benefits on Saturday. Rider good value for his claim and yard's sole runner on the card.

Off the mark at Salisbury and lacked the pace to defy a harsh 8lb rise back over 6f next time. Should be more effective here but faces a couple of better treated rivals in Starboy and Rastacap.

Ran Glamorous Dream to a head before romping home in a poor race at Salisbury. Limitations exposed last time and work to do.

Good effort when fourth on second start last year but held in two subsequent outings including on seasonal debut. Unlucky to be meeting a couple of in-form well-handicapped rivals on handicap debut.

Betting

Forecast

Starboy (5/4), Wicked Sea (11/4), Rastacap (3/1), Glamorous Dream (7/1), Zouch (16/1)

Verdict

Rastacap has probably found her level judged on last week's Thirsk second and connections are hoping to strike ahead of a likely reaction from the handicapper. As such it is unfortunate she bumps into the progressive STARBOY who is out to complete a ten day hat-trick. George Scott's charge is effectively just 6lb higher than when coasting home on Tuesday and is hard to oppose whilst conditions remain fast.
