79-10OR: 96CD
15/2

A six-time course winner who remains above his highest winning handicap mark following his back-to-back C&D wins in June. Has to be respected back here after two fair efforts elsewhere but there's a suspicion the assessor has regained control.

Impressive when winning over this trip on AW at Newcastle prior to following up at York (1m4f) next time. Has gone off the boil subsequently but a first-time visor may help spark a revival. 1lb above his winning mark at York.

Course winner. Hasn't won since landing a Listed race at Pontefract in 2017 but ran well at a huge price on seasonal return in a valuable York handicap last time. May yet have more to give at this trip and he's on a workable handicap mark.

Bounced back to form at Ripon when gaining a first win at this trip but has struggled badly from his revised handicap mark in two runs since, including over C&D behind Nicholas T in July. Has a bit to prove at present.

Appreciated a drop in class when winning at 1m at Haydock in July and shaped like he may have a future at this sort of trip last time out at Doncaster when runner-up to a promising sort. Will do better if he can learn how to settle in his races.

Won a novice event here (1m1f) and has won three times this year including another course success. Has shaped like a non-stayer at previous tries at this trip but gets a useful apprentice who can claim 3lb in the saddle; each-way chance if he stays.

Returned from a lengthy absence with a pair of AW wins at Wolverhampton last season and while he's not won since, it was a more encouraging effort when fifth of 11 at Thirsk last time on second start for this outfit; drop back in trip could help.

Hasn't won since landing back-to-back novice races last year. Narrowly denied when odds-on favourite in a match race at Doncaster last time out and others hold stronger claims.

Won twice last year and finds himself back on his last winning handicap mark having failed to win so far this season. Out of form judged on recent form and this contest looks competitive.

15/2

Inconsistent performer who got his head back in front at York in June and returned to form back at that venue when second of 15 in a Class 3 contest last time. Each-way player if he can translate the best of his York form to this venue.

Betting

Forecast

Certain Lad (11/4), Society Red (11/2), Another Touch (11/2), The Trader (7/1), Nicholas T (15/2), Poet's Dawn (15/2), Anythingtoday (11/1), Borodin (12/1), Universal Gleam (16/1), Star Archer (25/1)

Verdict

A tight handicap but the one that looks potentially well treated is ANOTHER TOUCH who has a course success to his name and ran a huge race in a strong contest at York last time out. There's every chance he can come on for that run and make his presence felt here. It's hard to knock Nicholas T's claims given his course record but the main danger to the selection could be Certain Lad who ought to be competitive if he can settle better than he has on his last couple of outings.
  1. Another Touch
