7/1

Six-time C&D winner who will have to overcome a poor post position to record another win here. Taken on for the lead at Pontefract last time and nowhere near the same form as when scoring over C&D the time before.

Followed a below-par effort with an even worse one last time out. Now has the blinkers added for the first-time but has something to find on current for with his wide draw not helping.

Won straight after having wind surgery when taking a 5f handicap under today's rider and showed some more decent form when trying to follow-up. May well have found the grade too much for him last time and this is less demanding; well drawn.

Unreliable and quirky sort who finds winning hard (1-39) with his inconsistency summed up by his poor C&D run last time. Would have a chance on a handicapping basis but not one to trust implicitly.

Good 2nd at Carlisle last time and has slipped below his last winning mark. Has a little more to do in this contest but is quite nicely berthed and no surprise to see him step up on his last run and return to winning form.

Returns from wind surgery to make her handicap debut having only been lightly-raced so far. Well berthed but hard to see her winning this on what she has shown so far having been beaten in a claimer on debut; first try at 5f.

Far from ideally placed at Pontefract last time over 6f (raced freely) when finishing 3rd in a better contest than this. His yard look to be coming back to form now but he remains 4lb above his last winning mark; has a poor draw.

A winner over C&D he did well to win from a wide draw on that occasion still looking as though he had more to offer. Didn't quite repeat that run last time at Musselburgh looking as though he would be suited by a return to 6f.

Has won over C&D but his losing run is starting to stack up now and although he finished a creditable third last time this looks tougher than his usual fare. Draw doesn't help either and on balance others are stronger propositions.

Tumbled down the weights since winning off a much higher mark last year and the handicapper gives him a real chance here. Eligible for weaker races than this now but can't be written off on the back of what he was capable of.

Latest win over C&D came in June a victory that ended a long losing run with his form rather intermittent since then. Ran poorly over 6f last time but no surprise to see him bounce back over a C&D he appears to relish.

Betting

Forecast

B Fifty Two (3/1), Arnold (7/2), Round The Island (6/1), Bondi Beach Boy (7/1), Point Of Woods (7/1), Oriental Splendour (17/2), Piazon (10/1), Gamesome (11/1), Etienne Gerard (12/1), Compton River (12/1), Ballynarry Lady (14/1), Raffle King (14/1), Seamster (14/1), Young Tiger (14/1), Scuzeme (20/1), Poppy In The Wind (33/1)

Verdict

A big field go to post and the draw and a good track position may be important in this with those in the double-figure stalls having a more difficult task. B FIFTY TWO ran a sound race last time and given he’s nicely drawn and weighted here he’s the suggestion in an open race. Point Of Woods will appreciate the ease in grade and he’s another who could be ready to strike from his berth with Arnold one of the more reliable options in the field. Oriental Splendour is getting too well handicapped to ignore while Etienne Gerard is likely to enjoy the return to this C&D.
