Verdict

Thanks For Coming has only had four career starts and landed a Ludlow bumper last May. His two runs over timber have shown plenty of potential and he looks on a fair mark for his handicap debut. Mad Moose looks much more of a stayer but the ground has come right for NICENE CREED and he gets the vote. Phillip Hobbs' charge won two novice events on good going and his latest defeats have come on ground much softer than he likes. Diklers Oscar was raised 9lb for winning at Ayr and struggled from that mark on her next start while the prolific Maska Pony was put up the same amount after completing a hat-trick at Wetherby in October. Tobago Bay landed a tough Newbury handicap earlier this month and shouldn't be far away despite being 6lb higher.
