GETCARTER is in cracking form and should be followed to complete a hat-trick in this sprint handicap, while Sarah's Art looks booked for another good performance. The latter has been going well over this trip in recent outings, winning two and being runner-up in one of his last four. A 4lb rise for winning over course and distance last time is fair enough, though he may just struggle to overcome the extra burden. However, Getcarter looks progressive. Richard Hannon's charge backed up a 7f Salisbury success with another one over 6f at Newbury last time. Fast ground suits, and although an 8lb rise may look harsh he won comfortably there and is fancied to complete a hat-trick. If the ground is not to quick for Catalan Bay then he is entitled to get very competitive from today's mark of 73, while Autumn Blades is now just 1lb higher than his best win and loves quicker ground over 7f, so money for him would probably be significant. Silver Wind is probably now in the grip of the handicapper, and Peper Harow looks to have a much tougher task than when scoring at Nottingham. Brunelleschi is 3lbs higher than his best win but has won over course and distance and will relish conditions, so he can be bang there, though Getcarter is preferred.
