Verdict

COUGAR'S GOLD showed much-improved form making a successful handicap debut at Cartmel last month and could have more to come. He showed a good attitude to fend off his main rival and, with the pair have drawn a long way clear, the penalty he carries here might not ground his ambitions. Eddy rates a lively danger having also improved markedly since joining current trainer, with a brace of wins at Uttoxeter already. They looks the most likely duo, with Chantecler and Starlit Night possibly ready to battle for minor money.
  1. Cougar's Gold
