Verdict

Sunraider has found form with a vengeance this season at the age of six and rates a strong contender in his current mood. However, he'd be 4lb better off in a handicap with SUMMERINTHECITY and that sways matters in favour of the Nicholls inmate. The yard has a good record in claiming contests and are extremely adept at switching charges between such events and handicaps. The selection, a really good fourth in a Class 2 Chester sprint handicap at the weekend, looks the one to beat if repeating that level now. Irish raider Oor Jock landed his sole career success back in 2010 and course and distance winner Hopes N Dreams is a likelier threat despite having plenty to find with Sunraider on running here last time.
