Alexander The Grey (5/2), Grageelagh Girl (5/2), Topofthecotswolds (3/1), Regulation (9/2), Write It Down (10/1), Reckless Behavior (50/1)

Verdict

There are questions marks hanging over all six runners in this novices handicap chase so a tentative choice is TOPOFTHECOTSWOLDS who has a big chance if repeating the form of his debut second on his penultimate start. Alexander The Grey looked like finally winning a race until blowing up dramatically here on the run-in last time. He deserves a win but is clearly very hard to catch right. Write It Down has shown little over timber, but his top yard could get more out of him over fences and he is respected on chasing bow. Top weight Regulation should be thereabouts too and may prove best of the rest.
  1. Topofthecotswolds
  2. Alexander The Grey
  3. Write It Down
