Forecast

Earls Fort (13/5), Beyondtemptation (3/1), Kalaharry (7/2), Vertigo (4/1), Border Breaker (10/1), Brave Spartacus (11/1)

Verdict
It's Hexham, so that means that the adorably tough Beyondtemptation will do battle. As always, she ran her race last week, but was picked off by a pair of slightly classier rivals and that could again prove the headline story this afternoon with EARLS FORT sent North by Neil Mulholland. This seven-year-old is ideally suited by decent ground and whilst steadily climbing the weights, his handicap form from the South might be slightly stronger than that achieved by Beyondtemptation in the North. Of the others, Vertigo might have found the race coming too quickly when well beaten by Modulus on his C&D handicap debut in March.
