Verdict

It's hard to know where to start with this bunch but something has got to win. The recent form of EASTLANDS LAD isn't quite as bad as the rest of the field so he gets a token vote on his third at Thirsk. Carazam won twice last year and is on a winning mark if finding his form and Burnhope has also tumbled down the weights. Homeboy and High On The Hog made the frame last month though both have been well beaten in subsequent starts.
