Verdict

THORNABY GREEN can be a strong fancy to finally end his winless drought, while Bailieborough and Machinate are others with chances at this level. It has been a while since Thornaby Green last won a race - in fact the economy was on the up, Woolworths were still in business and excitement was building for the opening of the new all weather track at Great Leighs. And Dean Heslop was still a 7lb claimer. Seventeen months on and a subsequent string of near misses aboard Thornaby Green, means Heslop is still able to claim 5lb; which can only be a help in a closely knit handicap like this. The former graduate of the Northern Racing College has been back amongst the winners of late and, as he knows the selection inside out, there are plenty of reasons to give the partnership another throw of the dice today. Bailieborough won over course and distance last month and continues to run with enthusiasm despite his advancing years. He is likely to track our hope from the next box along in the stalls and will be waiting to pounce if he falters near the finish. Wolverhampton has been the scene of four of Machinate's five career wins; so he cannot be discounted at his favourite venue. Recent form suggests he needs luck on his side, though. Others to note include: the lightly raced Doctor Delta, who will sport a visor for the first time, while Red Current has hinted at a revival lately and is no forlorn hope for a place in the frame. However, Thornaby Green has the strongest claims on the pick of his efforts and is expected to be very hard to beat if he can maintain his effort to the line this afternoon.
