MISPLACED is taken to land his hat-trick in the finale at the expense of Zowington and Dickie Le Devoir. The selection landed back to back races at Nottingham and Carlisle last month and has risen thirteen pounds in the ratings for his troubles. He did show signs of ability as a three year old last year but has been a late developer and took advantage of a lenient handicap mark. He will have to improve once again and a personal is needed but if he continues to progress he will not be far away come the business end of the race. Zowington has fallen down the ratings in the past twelve months and caught the eye off his current mark of 71 at Windsor last time out when running into second spot behind Bold Argument. He has never proved the easiest horse to win with but if he reproduces that same level of form he is certain to enter the frame once again. Dickie Le Devoir is another horse that has forgotten how to win. His last win came at Pontefract when winning of a mark of 77 and he has now fallen to an all time low mark of 65. His form of late has not been that bad and if he can regain some more enthusiasm now he is tried in first time cheek pieces he has a chance of going close so any support in the market should be noted. Misplaced is however the form horse in the race and gets the vote to land his hat-trick.
