Forecast

Crackdeloust (5/4), One For Billy (5/2), Golden Town (3/1), Flying Jack (10/1), Wynford (28/1), Getonsam (50/1), Royal Act (50/1), Rooster Spirit (50/1), Its Pandorama (66/1), Charin' Cross (125/1)

Verdict
Three of these horses are head and shoulders above the others. Golden Town will find a race (perhaps at Cartmel), but this looks to rest between the penalised CRACKDELOUST and the unexposed One For Billy. Both horses promise to be suited by this 2m trip, but the Brian Ellison trained gelding has winning form over hurdles as well as some solid enough placed efforts behind the likes of Applaus and Mr Clarkson, and comes here in preference to making his handicap debut elsewhere on tonight's card.
  1. Crackdeloust
  2. One For Billy
  3. Golden Town
