Verdict

A remarkably ordinary handicap in which most have already been exposed as modest performers. Themanfromfraam must have some sort of chance, however, despite dropping away tamely once headed when fourth at Uttoxeter last time - this is less competitive. ALLERTON definitely has claims on his second to Kayfton Pete at Chepstow and looks the one to beat, though Barton Gift is making his handicap debut and is dropped in grade. Native Breeze was fancied at Chepstow last time but ran a shocker and finished tailed off. She'll have to show a lot more here to get involved.
