Forecasts

Verdict

Paul Midgley had first and second last year with Tylery Wonder 3lb lower than when making all. However, the ground will be quicker and there is competition for the lead. That may set this up nicely for stable companion LINE OF REASON who needs a strong pace to aim at and who arrives on the back of a good run at Yarmouth. Fellow Yorkshire raider Only Spoofing remains on an attractive mark despite landing a good prize last time, whilst Blairmayne has a lot of angles covered as a C&D winner maintaining his form and who has been shown some leniency by the handicapper. Dali, who likes it here, and Amanaat are others to consider in an open handicap.
