Verdict

Force Group may now be in the grip of the handicapper and although his rider's claim helps, we will jump ship and snuggle up under the covers with AHLAWY. The selection currently has a rating of 68 and in recent runs has suggested that a win may be just around the corner. Having won off a mark of 72 in the past he looks well-treated and he gets our vote. King Fingal was a winner at Thirsk earlier in the season but two recent efforts have been poor and he'll need to improve for the step back up to this trip. Packers Hill may be happier back at this trip, whilst Five Wishes has been holding his form well all season and despite looking high enough in the weights he shouldn't be far away. Pitbull won the race last year off a mark of 56 but is 7lbs higher twelve months on, whilst Blushing Heart and Along The Nile should improve for recent outings. Black Coffee is an interesting one on his handicap debut despite being related to several sprinters, however it is Ahlawy who gets the nomination.
