Verdict

Icebuster has looked in the handicappers grip for some time now and the veteran Nanton recorded his only win since 2011 in an amateurs race at York during the summer. SCOTTISH STAR finished just ahead of Presburg when runner-up over 1m3f here last time and he gets another chance racing off the same mark today. There wasn't much between Deserted and Burnham at this track a fortnight ago when the former finished third while both Grendisar and One Pursuit had excuses last time and are not easily dismissed on their earlier efforts.
