Verdict

Burning Thread won this last year at 50/1 but is too unpredictable to recommend even though he's on a lower mark this time around. Dancing Freddy is in the form of his life, however, and won in this grade at York last Saturday with Tax Free not far behind. He should be bang there at the finish and Partner won't be far away either having beaten Foxy Music, Excel Bolt and Cheveton at Thirsk a fortnight ago. However, stablemate BAJAN TRYST is preferred as he won a competitive sprint at Dundalk off a higher mark in October and his side of the draw looks the place to be in today's contest. Mayoman should go well again and Kevin Ryan's third runner, Racy, has place claims while Lost In Paris has won the last two renewals of this event's consolation race.
