Verdict

There was plenty to like about Charmant's success at Sedgefield last time, though a glance over the field shows that he didn't beat much and with an 8lb rise ahead of this, he may not be able to handle handicap newcomer ECHO EXPRESS. Both runners hail from stables going well, but Nicky Richards' charge appears to have a mark that his trainer can work with and Ryan Day's claim is a bonus. Glingerside, once trained at Richards' Greystoke yard, is on a handy mark if he can show some of his earlier sparkle and the same applies to Aniknam. Backinthesaddle could also be competitive.
