Another low-grade handicap in which a pin and a blindfold could be useful tools. Decent Lord has the past form to figure but has been out of sorts so far this term. Worth A King's has enjoyed some success at this level while Furius left previous form behind when second on his reappearance at Sedgefield, though whether he'll reproduce that here is anybody's guess. Harrys Whim could figure if back to his best and No Through Road will strip fitter for his comeback run at Warwick, while Tannerman was well backed for a seller at Fakenham on New Year's Day though this is more competitive. MISSISSIPPI BLUES has his sights lowered and runs in his first handicap. He's shown a bit of promise and this may well be within his capabilities.
