Verdict

PRIVATE EQUITY has won two of her last three starts and she's a relatively confident pick in this "Hands and Heels" handicap with Red Wine and Ardmaddy rated among the dangers.We've seen much improved form from the pick since being upped in trip and introduced to handicaps. She won her first two efforts in these ranks, including over course and distance, and although she was a disappointment last time she is still lightly raced and can bounce back.Red Wine is the shadow of the horse he was but still looks capable of landing a race of this ilk. He was on top in a better race at Doncaster in May and amongst this company still commands respect.Ardmaddy and Sir Sandicliffe look a couple more of the likelier sorts after both found just the one too good last time plus both remain on fair ratings but in a race where most have negatives we are most positive about Private Equity.
