Michael Wigham's Yourgolftravel Com has slipped to a fair mark and has to be considered in a competitive handicap, especially if attracting solid support in the ring. Barney Curley's Aviso won narrowly over course and distance last month and he has claims but a 5lb rise for that win last time looks harsh and a better bet looks to be another last time out scorer here, BEAUMONT'S PARTY. Richard Hannon's gelding took advantage of being dropped by the handicapper when scoring recently and still looks to be well treated of a mark just 4lb higher today. Conor Dore's Ilie Nastase showed improved form at Pontefract over a mile earlier this month and has every chance of going one better today racing off the same mark, while Bell's Ocean is likely to struggle under her penalty for a win on the Fibresand last week. Jeff Pearce's recent course and distance winner Sonny Parkin and Chris Wall's Oh So Saucy are others to consider but preference is for Beaumont's Party.
