13/2

Lightly-raced winner. Winner at Redcar in August. 4/1, fourth of 7 in handicap at Ayr (7.2f, heavy) 11 days ago. Blinkers on 1st time. Needs a couple of these to falter.

50/1

Eleven runs since last win in 2019. Fifth of 9 in handicap at Catterick (6f, heavy, 11/1) 13 days ago. 2 lb out of the weights. Easy enough to look elsewhere.
