Verdict

This looks a very competitive sprint handicap as plenty arrive in form and several are open to further progress. G Force and the once-raced Dinneratmidnight are bracketed among the latter while One Boy, Skye's The Limit, Orient Class, Speed Hawk and Scarborough come here off the back of victories. Canyari showed plenty of speed over 6f at Leicester so should be suited by a drop in distance while Kickboxer was second last week at Chester. Bryan Smart won this last year with a progressive sort but Hamilton third Meadway doesn't appear to have the same scope. PIAZON is only a tentative selection as he has more to do than when scoring at Yarmouth but Louis Steward is excellent value for his 5lb claim and Michael Bell's gelding can reverse last month's Nottingham form with Signore Piccolo as he was slowly away that day. Outer Space is eased in grade but has to concede weight all round.
