10/1

Hasn't been able to win on the turf this season but returned to some form with 3L fourth in 7f Newcastle handicap at the end of July. Has fallen onto last winning mark and has potential to go well.

Tends to run her race in this company with two victories at Catterick and Carlisle in June. Bounced back to some sort of form when third of four at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) and has each-way claims.

Can be inconsistent. Failed to back up recent Thirsk victory when only fourth in Ayr handicap (7f, good) in July but wasn't disgraced. Off the same mark for this and not ruled out.

Has tended to perform better on the AW than the turf but has been running respectably of late. Well-held second in 5f Newcastle handicap on latest start and is slightly unproven at this trip.

Solid second over C&D on his penultimate start but failed to replicate that effort when failing to stay 1m at Beverley last time out. Can be forgiven for that run and seems to save his best efforts for this track. Enters calculations.

In fine form this season and was rewarded for his consistency last time out when landing C&D handicap despite hanging right during the race. Only raised 2lb for that win and will be a leading contender.

Well held behind Northernpowerhouse two starts ago but showed good improvement to win C&D handicap last time (Battle Of Waterloo second). Has to contend with 5lb rise but is respected.

Had shown sings of coming to hand before regressing on his latest start, finishing a 5L sixth in 7f Ayr handicap last month. Hasn't been given leniency by the handicapper and others are preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Northernpowerhouse (5/2), Gometra Ginty (11/4), Rux Ruxx (5/1), Battle Of Waterloo (5/1), How Bizarre (7/1), Inner Circle (8/1), Logi (10/1), Glengarry (10/1), Big Storm Coming (10/1), Oriental Lilly (12/1), Smugglers Creek (14/1)

Verdict

A handful of form ties in various horses to each other in this contest but preference is for NORTHERNPOWERHOUSE, who deservedly got his head in front last time and could currently be one step ahead of the handicapper if he can run straight. How Bizarre failed to stay a stiff 1m last time out and thrives around this C&D and could be dangerous at a fair price, while claims can also be made for Gometra Ginty and Battle Of Waterloo, whose repose each other again, with the latter being of interest without his penalty this time around.
  1. Northernpowerhouse
