Verdict

A nice competitive handicap this where plenty are given chances but for our selection we'll turn to handicap debutant WHERE'S REILLY ahead of top weight Dispol Grand and last time out winner Taurus Twins.The pick seems to be assessed just about right for his debut in this sphere having been narrowly beaten by some fair looking types in his three career starts. Each of those have promised more to come and with his best form coming on ground with some cut in it added to his dirt pedigree there's no reason why he shouldn't act on this surface.Dispol Grand was competitive off a mark a pound lower over course and distance last time up. The form from that race has been franked with both the winner and second going on to score on their next outings and we can expect another decent showing. Taurus Twins relished joining the handicap ranks here last time winning over course and distance. His margin of victory was a little narrow though suggesting his three pound mark rise will make things a lot tougher. You Avin A Laugh was an eye-catching improver on handicap debut last time and comes here off the same mark, however there is little to suggest the surface is right for this one but that's not the case for the pick Where's Reiley.
