Verdict

Whispered Times appears to be treading water off his current mark but Ellaal is getting closer to adding to this year's victories at Beverley and Carlisle and should be thereabouts again. Senor George got off the mark at Carlisle in June on his UK debut and is another with claims while Gambino and Sugar Town, near the foot of the handicap, also arrive in decent form. PAT'S LEGACY didn't shine over further at Pontefract last time and was a beaten favourite in Senor George's race earlier but this is his trip and ground and he could spring a surprise now that the handicapper has relented a little.
