Verdict

Bring Sweets was beaten in a selling hurdle last time and his only success on the Flat came at Southwell. King's Counsel has run poorly since beating today's rival Eijaaz at Catterick while Sartingo has never been beyond 1m1f and makes his handicap debut. PENANGDOUBLE O ONE landed a Kempton handicap from a 1lb higher mark in October and though failing to shine on his comeback at Thirsk can do better and gets the nod to take a moderate contest despite a big weight. Mohawk Ridge is capable of taking a race of this nature if ready after a break though he's now on his highest ever mark.
