Returned from wind surgery with a good 10½L fourth in a 3m5f handicap chase at Sedgefield (sfot) in October. Pulled up over an extended 4m at Kelso (soft) subsequently and is interesting if putting that latest effort behind him.

Followed up a victory over an extended 2m7f at Huntingdon (good) in October with a good second at Doncaster (3m, good-to-soft) last time out. Interesting contender despite a 2lb rise in the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Little Bruce (15/8), Brian Boranha (5/1), Sumkindofking (6/1), Manwell (6/1), Kingswell Theatre (15/2), Chase The Wind (17/2), Milansbar (14/1), Pickamix (14/1)

Verdict

CHASE THE WIND has been running well in recent starts and he can register a victory stepping up in distance in the 2020 renewal of the North Yorkshire Grand National. The selection has the forecast going to suit and he can see off Little Burce who finished runner-up here 12 months ago. Third place can go to the veteran Milansbar who is well handicapped on his old form.
