Was on a roll in the summer with three wins at Catterick and Chelmsford all at 6f. Hasn't quite lived up to that in stronger races since and now drops down to the minimum for the first time since April.

Front runner who is only 3lb higher than when taking this a year ago. Shaped well when third at this venue last month (behind of tonight's rivals) and likely to be primed for a repeat victory.

Sprang a 33/1 shock at Leicester in June and showed that was no fluke when following up on the A/W on next start. Below that form last two runs and passed over now.

Won a lower grade contest at Musselburgh in August but has struggled in follow up attempt having been forced up in grade.

Ffos Los win on penultimate start has taken plenty of knocks and had no chance in a stronger race at Chester since. Not the easiest to catch right but has course form to his name and could go well at a price.

A model consistency of late in similar contests here and another good run latest when splitting Burtonwood and Casterbridge though is now 11lb higher than his latest victory three starts ago.

Has shown very little all season but handicapper has dropped him 16lb as a result and this is weaker than the company he normally keeps. Certainly worth keeping an eye on in the market.

In good heart at Musselburgh in September including a win at this trip. Not quite so good in two runs here of late and finished well behind a trio of these last time.

Showed a good attitude again to beat Another Angel and Casterbridge here last month and little between the three on the revised terms. That was at this trip and it seemed to suit him having been running at 6f for a while prior to that.

Never out of the first four in seven previous visits to this track but does her racing in lower grade and will probably have to take another step forward to take this but respected all the same.

Betting

Forecast

Casterbridge (11/4), Another Angel (10/3), Burtonwood (4/1), Cherry Oak (6/1), Indian Pursuit (10/1), Burmese Blazer (10/1), Bomad (14/1), Jeffrey Harris (25/1), Brandy Station (28/1), Dahik (33/1)

Verdict

A tightly knit finale and the suggestion is CASTERBRIDGE in his attempt to follow up last years win in the contest. No shortage of dangers in the line up with Burtonwood heading the list and Dahik worth monitoring in the market.
  1. Casterbridge
  2. Burtonwood
  3. Dahik
