Verdict

MFIFTYTHREEDOTCOM continues to frustrate his long suffering backers but with stable apprentice Samantha Bell able to claim 3lb under the conditions of this race, the gelding looks to have a realistic chance of belatedly getting off the mark. Flora Medici graduated out of plating company to win handicaps at Beverley and Catterick and she is watched closely in the market on a seasonal reappearance. Blue Bounty continues to run with credit without getting his head infront while Distant High came up against an above average maiden here last month, and the handicapper could well have taken a more literal reading of that form. Wilde Inspriation didn't appear to be too inconvenienced by soft going when landing a Newcastle maiden and Julie Camacho has booked the useful Ian Brennan for the mount.
