12/1, creditable third of 10 in handicap at Nottingham (5f, good to soft) 5 days ago, sticking to task. Others more persuasive.
Winless this term but arrives in good form, latest when third in C&D handicap (heavy) earlier this month. Worth considering.
22/1, tenth of 12 in handicap at Salisbury (6f, soft) 18 days ago. Claims on best form.
Latest win at Redcar in June. 9/2, creditable fourth of 14 in handicap at Nottingham (6.1f, good to firm) 22 days ago, running on. Has good chance on form.
13/2, first run since leaving Denis Hogan when sixth of 7 in handicap at Ayr (7.2f, heavy) 11 days ago. Makes limited appeal.
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.
100/1, last of 15 in handicap at Redcar (6f, heavy) 51 days ago. Hard to fancy.
Multiple C&D winner who arrives on back of creditable third of 9 in handicap at Catterick (6f, heavy) 13 days ago. One for the shortlist.
Eighteen runs since last win in 2018. Fourteenth of 17 in handicap at Redcar (6f, soft, 20/1) 26 days ago. Chance on old form.
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.
What A Business (3/1), Round The Island (7/2), Ginger Max (4/1), Case Key (5/1), Viva Voce (13/2), Sweet Pursuit (11/1), Sin E Shekells (16/1), Coastal Mist (40/1), Exchequer (50/1), Shortbackandsides (50/1)
WHAT A BUSINESS has been running consistently well in similar events of late and can gain a deserved victory. Round The Island and Ginger Max look the likeliest dangers.
