Verdict

Vallarta won at Catterick last time and is upped in class but Art Obsession scored in this grade at Thirsk recently and is preferred. Dandyleekie is back on a winning mark with a recent reappearance under his belt and The Mcgregornator was placed at Cork last time. But it could pay to stick with BLACK ISLE BOY (NAP) in this given he followed a maiden win with victory at Hamilton on his handicap debut and a 4lb rise may not be enough to stop David O’Meara’s charge showing further improvement and taking this.
