Verdict
Wide open fare to finish things off and the vote goes to the aptly-named TIGHT CALL. A Fontwell novice scorer in April, he made his handicap debut in what has turned out to be strong event at Market Rasen in October, doing well to finish fourth. He had a wind op afterwards and then tackled the Lanzarote at Kempton last month. His sights are lowered along with his mark and this might be his chance to shine assuming he takes to this ground. Supakalanistic comes here off a win and can go well, while any of Meyer Lansky, Nightboattoclyro or Star of Rory could get involved.
  1. Tight Call
  2. Supakalanistic
  3. Star of Rory
