1
711-12OR: 110

Bumper winner for Evan Williams at Wincanton (2m, soft) on Boxing Day 2015; remains unexposed over hurdles (0-3) and could prove to be a reasonable acquisition for the England's at £4,000 (May 2018); handicap debut.

511-10OR: 108

Best with plenty of cut underfoot and this 2m4f trip is probably his optimum; competes from the same mark as when beaten 6L (third) by Cold Shoulder at Ayr (2m3f+, heavy) latest; chance.

411-10OR: 108

0-8 over hurdles, yet continues to knock firmly at the door, including when twice finishing runner-up over C&D (on good/good to soft); tongue-tie now added.

1011-9OR: 107CD

Game mare who has historically thrived on racing at Hexham; slipping back down the weights to a more manageable handicap mark; seemingly needed the run over 2m here last month; never dismissed lightly.

611-7OR: 105

With David Dennis when recording a second hurdles win at Exeter in October 2016 (2m1f novice); low-key on recent stable debut; ground concerns.

511-6OR: 104

Weakened from the final flight (clung on for a place) after forcing the pace throughout on handicap debut at Sedgefield (2m1f) 15 days ago; he'll face competition for the lead here from Beyondtemptation.

Last RunWatch last race
7
711-5OR: 103

Only completed once in six starts in PTP's with nothing of any real significance over hurdles so far either; starting off life with a new trainer, and wearing a newly applied tongue-tie.

611-1OR: 99

Lightly raced maiden (0-5); half-brother to the enigmatic 2m3f-2m7f hurdle winner Shantou Bob; this race represents just his second start in handicap company.

Last RunWatch last race
9
611-0OR: 98

Broke his duck at the 12th attempt when scoring at Carlisle (2m3f+, soft) in April (beating Sunday's Kelso winner Border Victor); returns to the track following a summer break from a 4lb higher mark.

Last RunWatch last race
10
910-0OR: 83CD

Left his previous form well behind when winning by an unchallenged 9L over C&D last month; the handicapper has taken aim with a subsequent 10lb hike but such was his poor from previously he remains at the foot of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Ask The Tycoon (9/4), Sheriff Garrett (10/3), Towerburn (9/2), Strike West (9/1), Lostock Hall (11/1), Where Now (12/1), My Liege (14/1), Beyondtemptation (18/1), Wor Verge (20/1), Mah Mate Bob (40/1)

Verdict

An open finale in which the market exchanges could hold relevant clues, with the likes of My Liege and Where Now certainly worth monitoring. Ask The Tycoon has stronger form than the majority of these and also has his optimum conditions, but the solution could possibly come from the other end of the handicap. The tentative advice is the seasonal debutante STRIKE WEST who might conceivably have more in the locker over this trip, having regularly struggled over 2 miles.
