In depth

Verdict

Only five runners in this but it's a competitive little contest. The tough Beyondtemptation is seeking a five-timer after beating Samedi Soir just over three lengths over course and distance on her latest start. But the runner-up is 5lb better off and may well turn that form on its head. My Little Cracker steps up a grade as she seeks a hat-trick on her handicap debut but she's won her last two without breaking sweat and Thankyou Very Much did well back over hurdles at Wetherby last month. CARD GAME made mistakes and was soon a busted flush in a tough heat at Haydock last time but dropping back in trip could see her emerge from the pack to take this.
