has been given a hefty rise for winning a classified stakes over C&D last month and could struggle from an 11lb higher mark. Similar comments apply to Champion Harbour
, up 4lb since winning narrowly over a mile at this track. Hitchcock
could play a leading role if fully tuned up from an enforced break whilst Pastime
looks the pick of the recent maiden winners (also Black Salt
) who make their handicap debuts. However, ARTHURTHEDELEGATOR
gets the vote as he looks strong and effective over this 7F trip. He was spotted doing good late work over an inadequate 6F having made the long journey south to Chepstow earlier this month.
