Verdict

Recent good form is limited amongst the runners in this handicap and it looks wide open as any of the 15 that run look capable of being ahead at the post but we side with RACOON who heads our shortlist in front of Darcy's Pride and Liberty Ship. The selection was a winner over 5f at Nottingham last time and his past form stands out from the rest here. The gelding is nine years old now, but he was still in great form last season and looks capable of victory here while he is in such good shape. Darcy's Pride has proved to be a rather inconsistent sort in the past. The filly was a winner at Redcar early last month but failed to follow up last time. She has got it in here though but the selection should prove too good. Liberty Ship was second behind the selection last time. He has yet to win in 12 attempts but has never finished out of the first six. He is on an interesting mark now but a repeat of his last outing looks likely. The market should reveal the clues to the rest in what should prove to be a very competitive race but for us RACOON looks capable of edging it.
