11/4

Formerly useful handicapper but isn't the force of old. Hamilton victory seemed to flatter him and was proven when last of 16, beaten 33L, in 6f York handicap last month. Chance in an easier contest but gives weight all round.

2/1

Dual scorer over C&D in the past but losing run now stretches back to a year. Placed in all three starts this season, including 5L third over C&D latest, and that makes her the one to beat in a winnable contest.

Losing run now stretches to nearly four years and has proven to be inconsistent recently. Recent 2L defeat in 5f Beverley handicap in July and career low mark means he merits consideration.

C&D winner in June 2017 but hasn't hit the heights in handicap company for a while now. Good second in a seller here on penultimate start but flopped when ninth of 10 in 5f Catterick handicap last time. Cheekpieces left off now.

Betting

Forecast

Diamonique (2/1), Jordan Electrics (9/4), Red Pike (5/2), Orion's Bow (11/4), Longroom (7/1)

Verdict

DIAMONIQUE has shown in the past to have an affiliation with this track and despite running with credit this season she has been given some leniency by the handicapper (dropped 1lb) and this looks a good opportunity against rivals who are likely to have seen better days. Red Pike has been tumbling down the handicap and with a slight return to form should see him go close in a weak race, while Jordan Electrics merits consideration if he can replicate any of his previous form over C&D, which has yielded a victory and some encouraging performances.
