Forecasts

General Mahler (10/11), Notonebuttwo (10/3), Oscar O'scar (4/1), Border Breaker (5/1), Red Giant (12/1), Quick Brew (14/1), Trust Me I'm A Dr (66/1)

Verdict

More than a few of these horses are either returning from extended breaks or are based with new connections, so there are possible reasons to expect improved efforts. However, Oscar O'scar is fairly proficient around Sedgefield and could be suited by the application of the visor if stripping fitter for a recent spin at Kelso, but the top-weighted first time cheek-pieced GENERAL MAHLER is the form horse. The pick of his chasing efforts are more than good enough to take this race with relative ease, and he showed his well-being when beaten just 1L by Loch Linnhe (pair clear) at Hexham earlier this month.
  1. General Mahler
  2. Oscar O'scar
