KEY FACTORS

  • This Class 2 handicap could be one of the races of the day despite the small field with just six horses entered following the withdrawal of Epaulement as a non-runner.
  • Every horse in the race has won over this distance other than Protected Guest with Tom Queally looking like he has a big task on his hands on the outsider, especially when looking fairly big in the weights too.
  • In the last three runnings of this race, no horse has won with a weight over 9-6 which could pose a problem for top-weight Sextant who will be carrying 9-12, a stone heavier than bottom-weight Almost Midnight.

BETTING ANALYSIS

This is a difficult field to pick a winner from with the favourite Sextant having some drawbacks whilst there are doubts over a few others too. Almost Midnight makes appeal as the bottom-weight and he can continue to improve in his first handicap having won twice from two starts at this distance.

BETTING TIP: ALMOST MIDNIGHT (EACH WAY)
