RAZIN’ HELL(best price 7/4) added to an already impressive course record (211311) when scoring in convincing fashion over the C&D last week and looks booked to go in again if in a similar mood. Indeed, if John Balding’s hadn’t missed the break here 8 days ago he would have probably scored with a bit more in hand than he eventually did, so even though a 6lb penalty carries him up towards a career-high mark of 75, the son of Byron looks more than capable of defying such an impost on the evidence of that latest performance.

BERKSHIRE DOWNS(best price 2/1) clearly has her limitations, but at the same time she’s shown enough to suggest she can win a race at a fairly low level and this contest looks well within her capabilities. Runner-up on her last two starts over hurdles, the pick of the pair came when she chased home the very impressive winner, Suit Yourself, over today’s C&D back in December and armed with the knowledge that she handles both track and testing ground, Lucy Normille’s mare makes a fair amount of appeal in a weak race.
