Verdict

T For Tango made a successful raid at Ayr last time but the Irish challenger has been upped 8lb for this. Dirchill has been raised 5lb for winning at Redcar and is raised in class while Green Fortune scored at Yarmouth in July but was still well beaten when runner-up at the same track last month. JOHN KIRKUP has yet to win this year but has slipped 12lb down the weights and posted a better effort in a higher grade sprint at Haydock recently. He may well be capable of winning off his current mark and Michael Dods’ charge gets the vote. Kenny The Captain has a bit to find with the selection but Cale Lane is still improving and could go well.
