Forecast

Royal Brave (7/2), Van Gerwen (4/1), Tahoo (11/2), Muatadel (7/1), Hoofalong (8/1), Cosmic Chatter (10/1), Aleef (10/1), Escalating (11/1), My Name Is Rio (12/1), Eccleston (14/1), Rosina (14/1), Gamesome (16/1), Ziggy Lee (20/1), Henley (28/1), Straightothepoint (28/1)

Verdict
This handicap is a complex punting puzzle to close the year at the Yorkshire track with a few candidates that have dropped to marks that they ought to be able to win off. Hoofalong would come into that category and he should not be taken lightly off this mark and neither should Straightothepoint although he could have been blessed with a better draw. Neither Royal Brave nor Tahoo the pair who head the weights can be written off although the former would been the preference from that duo. Ziggy Lee is likely to need this run but should be watched for signs of potential after he showed that he was a useful sprinter last year. A strong pace is required for VAN GERWEN to show his best and he should get that here and he’ll be finishing fast and late at a track that suits him well.
  1. Van Gerwen
