Verdict

Little recent winning form to contemplate but DYNAMIC DRIVE did land a success over course and distance last October - and on the forecast ground conditions - so makes some appeal in an otherwise unappealing contest. He's only had the two runs since and looked to need the race when fifth here to Dalmo last time. He should be spot-on now and Daragh Bourke claims a useful 7lb off his back. Shan Valley and Ivans Back are both consistent enough in a lowly grade and it's worth noting that the latter's small Lincolnshire yard of Nick Kent enjoyed a winner on the Flat earlier this week. Triple Eight and Bollin Line are possible improvers but their place at the head of the weights shows the modest overall level of this contest.
