8/11

First runner at the track for this Yorkshire trainer, showed definite ability on first two starts last year but not gone on from that. However, this is so weak that even his recent efforts might be good enough, and this drop back to 7f a plus.

7/1

Only had the two starts, so unexposed and may well improve, but has leading chances simply on what he's done to date, having finished fourth on both starts. Big question mark is the drop back in trip, but a leading player all the same.

13/2

There's some form from last summer that would give him a leading chance here but two starts this season have seen him finish well beaten, and there's been little to recommend him here. Very risky now.

15/2

Two decent efforts over 5f last summer would put him right in the firing line here, but he went off the boil after that and regressed quite quickly. Not seen out since last November, and may well need the outing regardless.

10/1

Early days for her, this only being her fifth start, but here's been little to shout about in her first four, well beaten on all occasions, and she needs to leave that well behind here.

20/1

Rated just 46 and she's clearly modest, but does have the plus point of being able to handle the track, having finished in the frame a couple of times in low-grade handicaps here this year. Has place chances in a weak event.

Forecast

So Macho (8/11), Dependable (13/2), Brambledown (7/1), Penwood (15/2), Ecstasea (10/1), Spirit Of Lucerne (20/1), Hornby (50/1)

Verdict
You'll have to go some way to find a race as weak as this. Brambledown might have been the selection over a slightly longer trip but this would be a bare minimum for him, and he might not have the speed for it. SO MACHO has travelled a fair way to take part in this and the hint should be taken. He's just about the form choice anyway, and is the one to beat. Spirit Of Lucerne is no great shakes but experience of this track counts for something, and she might pick up some place money again.
