Forecast

Oscar Maguire (2/1), Seapoint (4/1), Pinch Of Ginger (4/1), Shimba Hills (6/1), Aengus (13/2), Leverock Lass (8/1), The Pine Martin (33/1), Top Billing (33/1), Show And Go (50/1)

Verdict
Reasonably competitive for the grade with the southern-based raiders Oscar Maguire and SHIMBA HILLS book-ending the handicap. The former was narrowly beaten by the heavily supported and game Aniknam (beaten since) on his return to action at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve, while the latter ploughed through the mud to beat an unexposed David Pipe-trained runner at Lingfield Park (2m3½f) a fortnight ago. The selection remains well-handicapped despite a 7lb rise and is a noteworthy Newcastle runner for the Oxon-based handler Lawney Hill (second ever runner at the track). Others worthy of consideration include the hat-trick seeking Pinch of Ginger and the 32-race maiden Seapoint.
