This is a competitive handicap chase to close the card and we will put forward FURZE HILL to get the better of Pagan Sword and Carrickmines. There is plenty to recommend the selection as he has run really well on his last two starts and he has his optimum ground conditions. He looks progressive and he could be one to stay on the right side of. Pagan Sword ran his best race for a while at Plumpton on Monday when he chased home American World. If this does not come too quickly for him then he should go close, although he may be seen to better effect over a slightly longer trip. Carrickmines has been off the track since April and although he handles a bit of cut in the ground, his best form has been on a faster surface. Take It There is better than she showed at Fontwell last time, but she is hard to recommend with confidence after such a poor run. We will therefore return to Furze Hill as the one to beat.
