Forecast

Jack Blane (11/4), Fikhaar (5/1), Cool Strutter (5/1), Mr Potter (8/1), Pepys (8/1), State Residence (9/1), Broctune Papa Gio (10/1), Peny Arcade (12/1), Rose Eclair (14/1), Atrafan (14/1), Windforpower (20/1), Dream Revival (33/1), Baby Helmet (40/1), Jacob Black (50/1)

Verdict
Seemingly the weaker of the two divisions of this 7f handicap, and a race in which 6f Redcar winner State Residence will be popular in the market for David O'Meara. He seems to handle synthetics, and might be worth excusing for a moderate Catterick showing subsequently (race came too quickly). 2016 winner Cool Strutter is handicapped to run a solid race, but he's tough to win with and at likely bigger odds I'd be more inclined to trust the admirable veteran Broctune Papa Gio, who the handicapper is trying to give one more winning opportunity to. However, in a race where many will struggle to get the 7f trip, and nothing makes any significant appeal, 7f Wolverhampton winner JACK BLANE gets the nod.
  1. Jack Blane
  2. Broctune Papa Gio
  3. State Residence
