Forecast

Berlios (10/3), Slingsby (4/1), Foolaad (15/2), The Hooded Claw (8/1), Art Obsession (10/1), Burtonwood (11/1), Ambitious Icarus (12/1), Tadaawol (14/1), Mr Morse (16/1), Meshardal (18/1), Ballesteros (18/1), Big Amigo (22/1), Ticks The Boxes (28/1), Be Bold (80/1)

Verdict
One of the most competitive handicaps for its grade to be run at this track for a number of months, and a race which will be devilishly difficult to solve with few that can be ruled out completely. Burtonwood and Art Obsession are closely matched, and a good case can be made for both horses with past strong records at this track, whilst Slingsby (who has a little improvement to find to again down Art Obsession) is always a force to be reckoned with here off the front end. The once classy Meshardal is worth watching closely for any market support on his return the track, but the unlucky in running BERLIOS gets the vote to capitalise on an unchanged mark of 72 at a track which should suit. 1. Berlios 2. Art Obsession 3. Burtonwood
