Verdict

A wide open handicap closes out matters and marginal preference is made for PITBULL ahead of Natural Rhythm and Tom Tower. The selection has been creeping closer and closer to getting in front as his rating has come down and he was only just collared late on when racing off this mark last time. He may have kept his advantage had he not edged left that day and if reproducing that run he should go one better. Natural Rhythm took advantage of a basement rating last time to score in a weak race at Beverley. The six pounds penalty added to his back for that run looks prohibitive but if that performance has got his tail up he may go close. Tom Tower is on top form at the moment and easily held the selection on his latest success. The weights favour a reversal of that result but in this mood you rule him out at your peril. Montiboli ran well in defeat off this mark last time and should go better back up in trip but Pitbull seems to be the one they have to collar.
