Rory let us down at the weekend and I’m surprised he is as short as he is in here after that effort. I like the chances of three-time C&D winner MILITIA for Paul Midgley. He impressed making all at Catterick and while he failed to back that up at Chester I still think he remains in good form. This is an ease in grade so he should appreciate these calmer waters and under likely aggressive tactics they might not see which way he goes under 5lb claimer Ryan Sexton. Hard to pinpoint an exact danger but Modular Magic has also proved effective over this track and trip in the past so might bounce back to be the main danger. He has been eased 2lb but might still be a bit too high in the handicap. Primo’s Comet is 2lb below his last winning mark but that’s with good reason on recent evidence so he’ll need more to spring the upset here.

I didn’t think MOEL ARTHUR did a lot wrong at Sandown last time. He was briefly short of room when trying to make headway and just found the winner High Wells too strong. The front three pulled nicely clear from the rest and the third Dancing Harry franked the form winning at Salisbury next time out. Even the sixth Arabian Warrior who was weakening at the finish won his next start at Newcastle so it definitely stacks up. He is up 2lb here but on just his fourth start in handicaps he could improve again to win this. Percy’s Pride ran well in first-time cheekpieces at Windsor but has stamina to prove over this trip. Mukha Magic has won 2 of his last 3 and might emerge as a greater danger if coping with a further 4lb rise in the weights. Maketh Believeth is the pace angle and he might end up setting it up for the selection.
