6/4

Given a good ride when dominating at Catterick (1m6f, good) last week. Riders claim offsets most of the penalty and drop in trip is not a massive problem. On an upward curve and sure to go well again for yard that won this in 2016.

Won a weak race at Chepstow comfortably off a 7lb lower mark back in May. Looked in need of the run on return from a break at Kempton last time and further progress is highly probable.

has shown improved form since switching to handicaps and going up in trip. Just failed when sent off favourite at Lingfield (1m3½f, good to firm) last time. Up 2lb but should be more to come and this ground may suit.

Dubawi colt out of a Grade 1 winner in Canada once held an entry for the Derby. Beaten favourite on two of his last three starts but only failed to Swordbill narrowly last time and that rival has won twice since. First win is imminent.

Not been with this yard very long but last effort at Hamilton was pretty lifeless. Impossible to fancy on that evidence.

Tends to go well here but has been struggling to be competitive of late despite being place twice. Races from 9lb out the weights here and up against it.

Betting

Forecast

Trouble And Strife (6/4), Refrain (2/1), Dance To Paris (4/1), Bombero (8/1), See The City (12/1), Our Cilla (20/1), Point Of Honour (25/1), Correggio (40/1)

Verdict

Refrain is sure to get the first win on the board sooner or later having bumped into a highly progressive rival last time. This can go the way of TROUBLE AND STRIFE who is on an upward curve have won easily at Catterick last week. His riders claim offsets most of then penalty and the stiff finish here should suit him.
