Clenagh Castle (9/4), Becauseshesaidso (5/2), Basford Ben (5/1), Midnight Mustang (5/1), Show's Over (8/1), Over My Head (9/1), Armedandbeautiful (10/1), Wish In A Well (12/1), That's The Deal (20/1)
Only fairly modest material to work with here and it could well give BECAUSESHESAIDSO a good chance to get off the mark over fences. He ran a fair race on his penultimate outing and although he was beaten off this mark last time there hardly look to be any improving types lurking in this. That’s The Deal has to be respected on his form here although of late he’s looked held off this mark and it may well be that Clenagh Castle provides the most danger. He’s no world beater but his run last time out was better than it looks and his yard have already proved themselves adept with similar types from the point-to-point field. Midnight Mustang bids for a long awaited hat-trick but is likely to need the run and Basford Ben will need an easy lead to figure here and is much better suited to the track at Carlisle.
