6/1

Reeled off a hat-trick of wins before the handicapper caught up with him at Redcar last time. Plenty to do off this mark, but knows how to win and can't be written off.

Plenty of good form at this venue and was not at his best at Chester last month. Handicap mark high enough, but likely to give his running back at this course.

Narrow winner at Chester in July, but has been well held since off higher marks, including at this track at the end of last month. Looks to have a bit to find at these weights.

Only win this season was back in April at Leicester. Mixed bag since, but now only 3lb higher than when successful. Any rain would help.

Stable companion of Inviolable Spirit and has been running with credit off this sort of mark recently. Quite consistent and has each-way claims.

First outing since wind surgery when running a fair race at Beverley last month. Should come on for the run and 2lb lower mark is helpful.

Good effort to finish third of 12 at Newcastle last month. Races off the same rating, but was well beaten on previous run at this venue.

Has been consistently knocking on the door and was just touched off on heavy ground at Ayr on his latest outing. Up 2lb and may not be suited by more lively going.

Only three wins from 52 starts and each of them has been achieved over 6f. Latest efforts only fair and she is readily opposed despite falling rating.

Fair effort over C&D two outings ago, but failed to back that up at Ayr, where he probably found the softer ground against him. Inching down the weights and makes some appeal for stable which won a division of this race last year.

Betting

Forecast

Make Me (3/1), Jacob Black (9/2), Pepys (6/1), The Right Choice (6/1), Smugglers Creek (15/2), Inviolable Spirit (8/1), Newstead Abbey (14/1), Collingham Park (20/1), Miss Sheridan (33/1), Jessie Allan (66/1)

Verdict

Bottom-weight Newstead Abbey has each-way claims back on better ground, but this may go to THE RIGHT CHOICE, who is consistent and deserves to get his head back in front. Stable companion Inviolable Spirit would be suited by any softening of the ground, while others to note in an open handicap are Make Me, Pepys and Jacob Black.
