Verdict

If the rain stays away then the ground just might be against Zabeel Tower so instead we turn to NINTH HOUSE to land this handicap and keep up a decent run of form for Ruth Carr's string while Hel's Angel looks next best. It's been a landmark season for trainer Ruth Carr has she continues to be amongst the winners and the pick has been part of that success. A winner when taking advantage of a nice looking mark two starts ago he then chased home the winner after coming from way back to finish second best under a penalty last time. His burden still looks fair based on the seven-year-old's all-weather form so another bold bid is expected. Zabeel Tower's recent best has come on softer ground but if the rain does arrive then he ha to be respected off a good looking mark at a track he likes. Hel's Angel ran a good race in defeat last time and is still weighted to challenge and if Rookwith takes up this engagement instead of going to Ireland then he is also on the shortlist. A good competitive contest that could go the way of the in form Ninth House.
