Verdict

With so many runners and no clear horse to beat, this is a very open looking contest. Our Place In Louis out-ran big odds at Thirsk last time and shaped as if he is the sort of horse who could win a big-field handicap such as this, while Goninodaethat won over C&D in October and has been running well elsewhere of late. They could both be thereabouts, but preference is for POOR DUKE. He enjoyed a fruitful summer last year with some fine efforts, and has been running over a mile recently despite sprint distances looking to be his optimum. He returns to 6f today and could exploit that step down in trip to land the spoils.
  1. Poor Duke
  2. Our Place In Loule
  3. Goninodaethat
