Verdict

Taro Tywod landed a minor handicap at Brighton and couldn't quite peg back Yorksters Prince at Redcar after a 6lb rise in the weights. She's up another 2lb but Phil Collington will ensure she gets a good ride. The Ducking Stool has been in very good form and battled to victory at Yarmouth though he probably wouldn't want any rain. Pertuis has run poorly since scoring at Ripon in June and Johnny Lesters Hair hasn't won for almost two years, though he's dropped in the weights accordingly. SEHNSUCHT has finally found his form and looked a horse worth following when scoring at Leicester in May so is given the nod despite having an inexperienced pilot on board.
