3/1

Returning from a break when finishing 18L third in a 2m1f novices' handicap chase at Stratford (good-to-soft) a fortnight ago. Likely to have improved for the run.

Age: 5|  Weight: 11-7  |  J: Adam Wedge |  T: Evan Williams|  OR: 93
13/8

Registered a first victory when winning by 9L in a handicap chase over an extended 2m3f on good going at Fontwell just over two weeks ago. One to note despite an 8lb rise in the weights.

Age: 9|  Weight: 10-6  |  J: R T Dunne |  T: N P Mulholland|  OR: 78
9/1

Successful over this trip at Stratford (good) in July. Generally disappointing since, most recently when 43L fifth of six at Perth (2m4f, good-to-soft) and races off a mark 3lb higher than for that Stratford triumph.

4
Age: 4|  Weight: 10-1  |  J: James Best |  T: M Keighley|  OR: 83|  C
2/1

Making his chase debut when beaten 15½L into fourth over this C&D on good-to-firm ground a month ago. Worth a check in the market off a 6lb lower mark on this occasion.

Age: 12|  Weight: 10-0  |  J: M Goldstein |  T: Miss M P Bryant|  OR: 59|  CD
40/1

Dual winner over fences here including in this race four years ago. Recorded just one victory since however and races from out of the handicap this time around.

Betting

Forecast

Agent Westy (13/8), Enforcement (2/1), Wenceslaus (3/1), Code Of Law (9/1), Killabraher Cross (40/1)

Verdict

AGENT WESTY impressed in winning last time out and he is taken to follow up that victory with a success in this small field handicap chase. Top weight Wenceslaus ran a decent race on his return to action and he can take second spot ahead of Code Of Law who can put a disappointing effort last time out behind him to claim third.
  1. Agent Westy
  2. Wenceslaus
  3. Code Of Law
