This looks an open race, but DE VEGAS KID seems sure to go well at what will likely be a decent price. He started at 40/1 at Leicester last time, but left the impression he would come on for his first run for 12 weeks, and this handicap doesn’t look as competitive. De Vegas Kid has fallen back to his last winning mark and makes a fair bit of appeal.
BAYSTON HILL arrives at the top of his game, winning his last two starts over a mile and a quarter at Chelmsford. He won with more in hand than the head margin suggests, staying on well to get on top in the closing stages.
The step up in trip seems sure to suit on that evidence, and he remains well handicapped on the pick of his form having been raised 3lbs for that effort. Clearly in good health, he should prove a tough nut to crack in search of the hat-trick.
DREAM HOUSE shaped much better than the bare result at Redcar last time, having no chance at all given the way the race panned out, and is below his last winning mark so he’s worth chancing in a race that should pan out ideally for his patient style.
Recent winners Zulu Zander and Shining are obvious dangers provided they don’t scupper each other’s chance up front.
