Lemon T (2/9), Mayo Star (11/10), Our Promise (9/2), Banks O' Houxty (11/2), Golden Chancer (33/1), Shouldn't Be Here (66/1), Weave Some Magic (66/1)
This is a pretty uncompetitive event which looks to concern LEMON T and Banks O' Houxty. The latter is evidently talented, as he showed when winning a bumper easily on his first ever career start. That was four years ago though, and although he ran respectably on return from that absence when fifth at Hexham recently, he now needs to build on that. Thus, the former is preferred given the form he has showed the last twice at this track, including when runner-up on hurdles debut last month. The step up in trip can unlock further improvement in this son of Sulamani. As for the minor contenders, Our Promise can run into a place given the hint of ability she displayed in bumpers.
