711-12OR: 108
8/1

Without a win for over 14-months - when teaming up with the Champion Jockey Richard Johnson at Wetherby (2m3f, soft); strongest over a shorter trip and despite being feasibly handicapped that makes him vulnerable.

13/2

20-race maiden, although in all fairness hasn't been with Lucinda Russell for too long and has only raced once over the larger obstacles when finishing 13¾L fourth of eight to Glittering Love (3m Ayr; soft) - lost both back shoes.

1111-11OR: 107D
20/1

4-22 over fences; finished a distant runner-up to Ascot De Bruyere in atrocious conditions over C&D in April 2018; 2lb lower than when reappearing at this track in mid-December (fifth).

1011-11OR: 107
3/1

Has predictably taken time to regain his match fitness after a 27-month break from racing. However, that has aided his handicap mark immeasurably and but for an improving winner, he would've taken advantage at Sedgefield (3m2f) latest.

4/1

Veteran who was fully capable of disposing of this level of opponent in his prime; still retains the zest for racing having finished in the frame in three of his four starts this season; fair to say that he doesn't do anything quickly.

811-4OR: 100BF
11/4

His sole win (1-15) came over an extended 2m5f at Market Rasen in December 2017; one of the probable pace-setters in this race (can often run in snatches); no problems whatsoever with the forecast conditions.

911-4OR: 100
16/1

Recent form figures not overly inspiring; appreciates some give underfoot and now a full 14lb lower than when scoring for Anthony Honeyball at Plumpton (3m1f+) in January 2017.

810-8OR: 90
10/1

13-race maiden; has fallen 5lb in the weights since finishing 25L fifth of ten to Shaiyzar (3m2f, good) at Sedgefield 12-days ago; could be sharper on his second start for this yard (off the track since October 2017 prior to that run).

1110-0OR: 62
200/1

42-race maiden (0-17 over fences); holds very little chance whatsoever from a whopping 20lb out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Iskabeg Lane (11/4), Chase The Wind (3/1), Astracad (4/1), Gars Bar Dine (13/2), Newberry New (8/1), Forever Dylan (10/1), Royal Salute (16/1), Whiskey Chaser (20/1), Bertielicious (200/1)

Verdict

Difficult to pin-point the likeliest winner, although it certainly won't be the 42-race maiden Bertielicious who competes from a whopping 20lb out of the handicap. Iskabeg Lane needs including on the short-list in a race which lacks any real strength in-depth, and the same can be said about the Newcastle regular Whiskey Chaser. However, for small stakes the preferred option is the Joanne Foster-trained CHASE THE WIND. Although ultimately no match for the Christian Williams-trained Sideways (has run respectably in a Class 3 handicap since) at Sedgefield in January, he finished best of the rest and that was his strongest form since scoring at Wetherby in May 2016.
