This looks a half decent renewal here and I’m going to go with a couple of horses that are on the way down the handicap in the hopes of a return to form here at big prices. Aiteen Thirtythree is down here to a more workable mark of 144 after getting crucified after his novice campaign by the handicapper. The stable does have a great record in this, but that said do have a more fancied runner here. He has looked a bit of a plodder in some of his races but this race may suit him and I’m hopeful that he is ready for his first race in a long time. I’m interested at the 17.5 currently on Betfair or 16/1 with BetVictor.
I can’t leave Alfie Spinner go off at 33/1 just in case he can get back to form of what looks a very competitive mark. On his best form which isn’t that long ago he is thrown in here.

The minute I looked at this race is couldn’t get past Hectors Choice at 14/1 of a very good mark. He does have some decent form from last year, and has some good form first time out. He looks to have been dropped a few pounds too much and if he is fit he should have a great chance.
1 Point win 14/1 Generally
Conry came good at the end of last year and he showed last time out that he may be about to come good again shortly. He is a couple of pounds out of the handicap here but will love the conditions and should really be finishing his race well in what could be a stretch for a few of these. He has been relatively lightly race this season in comparison to most of this field as well which will be an advantage.
1 Point win Betfair 30
Hoof it is 6lbs better off with Jack Dexter for a 3 lenght beating last time out and has been running well this year, if a little bit short of finishing pace a few times. I though his last run looked as good as anything in a while and with the conditions of this race he shouldn’t be 14/1. He has been costing me points this year a few times but in general have been running well and overpriced.
2 Points win 14/1 Various
Communicator looks to have been running this year with this race in mind. He was second last year of a higher mark and has in the past some very decent form in soft ground. I would have expected him to be a bit shorter and have the feeling that the 18 now available on Betfair could look a decent price later on today.
