Forecast

Zabeel Star (9/2), Royal Cosmic (9/2), Bathsheba Bay (6/1), Cedar Hill (13/2), Fourth Of July (7/1), Pammi (9/1), Crackdeloust (9/1), Blooriedotcom (12/1), Honourary Gift (12/1), Val Mome (16/1), Gemologist (20/1), Raymond (28/1), Vino's Choice (40/1), Abouttimeyoutoldme (40/1)

Verdict
Bathsheba Bay made all to win at Taunton in November and is respected for connections now moving into handicaps. He's not been thrown in here though and the form of that win isn't overly strong. Crackdeloust is going the right way after a long layoff and can have a say while Blooriedotcom shouldn't be underestimated after a 5lb rise for his C&D win last month. However, ZABEEL STAR wasn't far off in second at Catterick on New Year's Day and that form is reliable with the winner and fifth scoring next time out. Karen Mclintock's charge should boast excellent credentials rated 2lb higher at a track where the trainer had a 33 per-cent strike-rate during 2019.
