Verdict

CHJIMES is the selection in this fair handicap with Thoughtsofstardom and Nickel Silver arriving here in fair form. There is plenty of pace in this contest so a come from behind performer like Chjimes will have an obvious target to aim at. It is a slight worry that we haven't seen him out for a few weeks but conditions should suit. Thoughtsofstardom has won twice over course-and-distance. The handicapper has had his attempts at catching him thwarted but it will be a good effort to defy him once again. Canadian Danehill is a useful sprinter on his day though Southwell seems a happier hunting ground these days. Nickel Silver is a proven front runner. He won here despite that and he is likely to be burning rubber from the gate. Cosmic Destiny confirmed earlier promise on this surface and appears in good heart at present. Northern Empire has cheekpieces and the services of Jamie Spencer this afternoon. Bo McGinty is dropping down the weights after a period of reluctance from the handicapper. The race of the day and Chjimes is our selection at the likely odds.
