Verdict

Clayton is up 6lb for landing a strong Pontefract handicap on soft ground and should go well but this looks tough though he holds Sennockian Star on that run. Red Avenger was placed in two handicaps at this level before failing in a Group 3 and the Cambridgeshire and this looks more his class. Hi There could do with some rain but showed up well on his reappearance in the Lincoln and has to be respected, especially as he holds several of these on his victory at Newbury in October. Tres Coronas is 12lb higher than his last victory though the booking of Mikael Barzalona catches the eye while Ajman Bridge has only run four times and has more scope than most of these rivals. Rock Choir couldn't quite cope with Listed company after victories at Goodwood and Newbury but looks on a fair mark and has to be a threat though the vote in a wide-open handicap goes to PASAKA BOY, the winner of a competitive handicap here last summer and just 2lb higher despite scoring again at Newbury on his final start.
