1111-12OR: 97CD
4/1

Course specialist, with four wins here (including over C&D). Successful off 3lb higher here last January, but ran a stinker when last seen here in November, and needs to bounce back.

611-11OR: 96WS
9/1

Much better effort over fences when second of 10 to Benny's Secret in a novice handicap over C&D on debut. Ran badly here next time, but has since had a breathing operation, and may well do better.

1011-7OR: 92
9/2

Fourth on debut for new yard at Down Royal on Boxing Day, and has since finished a creditable third on the AW at Newcastle. Hood back on in place of blinkers now, and not without claims on form.

811-3OR: 88D
7/2

Not the most fluent of fencers, and was weak in the finish when 13½L fifth to Mah Mate Bob at Sedgefield (2m3½f, soft) on Boxing Day. Fared no better last time, and connections now reach for blinkers.

911-2OR: 87
15/2

Just a moderate hurdler at best, and he has run poorly on both starts over fences this term, finishing tamely both times. Visor tried now, but it doesn't inspire confidence.

1110-13OR: 84D
33/1

Modest form over fences for Di Grissell in 2018, but well beaten after a long break for new yard at Taunton last time, and needs to raise his game markedly.

710-12OR: 83
9/2

Has faailed to complete on two of his last four starts, but ran creditably when second at Hexham on penultimate start, and booking of a top rider takes the eye. Market useful.

1110-6OR: 77

Not disgraced when fourth in handicaps here and at Catterick in November, but weakened sharply after stumbling on the home turn at Sedgefield last time.

910-0OR: 64
25/1

Beaten a long way on all three starts this winter, and makes precious little appeal from 7lb wrong at the weights in this handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Graystown (7/2), John Williams (4/1), Carried (9/2), Pc Dixon (9/2), Stormbay Bomber (7/1), Oldtimer (15/2), Izzy's Champion (9/1), Painters Lad (25/1), Pierlow (33/1)

Verdict

Not many arrive at the top of their form, and CARRIED, who hasn't been with Roy Watson long, can win having run well on the flat last time. Izzy's Champion ran well over C&D on his chase bow, and had excuses next time, so could bounce back after a breathing operation. John Williams ran badly last time, but has won four times here, so it would be no surprise to see him bounce back in an uncompetitive race.
  1. Carried
  2. Izzy's Champion
