Circuitous had looked in the grip of the handicapper before popping up at Carlisle last time and he has the beating on last season's form of recent Ripon winner Ypres. Colbyor failed to follow-up his earlier win at Wolverhampton when well beaten off today's mark back in January and it could be the turn of DIAMONDHEAD in this. It's been a long time since his maiden win at Newmarket in 2011, but he's plummeted 25lb down the weights in the meantime and a recent narrow defeat at Carlisle suggests he's ready to strike again at long last.
