Verdict

Seattle Drive was conceding 4lb when getting up on the line to catch EXTRATERRESTRIAL over this trip at Carlisle. The runner-up is 1lb better off and this sharper track can see him take revenge and land this. Demolition found 1m4f too far at York and this is his trip and grade so he has to be a threat along with Jebel Tara, who won five handicaps earlier this summer including three on this track and has been struggling from his new mark subsequently.
