This definitely isn't a race to get too heavily involved in with betting stakes it is a pretty poor race even for class 6 and any one of 6 are capable of winning here, Krazy Paving and Porto Ferro are 5th and 6th top rated and both look to prefer different surface to this one so maybe they could make the frame but maybe not the win, Wild Flower is joint 3rd top rated but gets its stamina stretched at this distance if there's a fast early pace, NOBLE DEED 9/2 is the other 3rd top rated and this one did an even better time in 2016 and a repeat of that time would see it win quite easily, it showed a return to form last time out when 3rd and is weighted to reverse the form with Krazy Paving in that race,Aragon Knight is 2nd top but this one may find the trip too far if there's a fast early pace, which leaves NAGS WAG 33/1 at the top of my list, this one can either track the leaders or be held up for a late run and if it gets the required clear run from stall 4 it must have a chance of winning here but i will go with the 2 selections in case Noble Deed finds its form from 2 years ago.

Noble Deed 10/1 7th
Nag's Wag 33/1 Unp
This race is so bad I very nearly left it alone but I might have found the solution to the race in the shape of AMBITIOUS BOY 5/1 who won last time out over this course and distance in a class 6 race and its now dropped into a class 7 race, its also an apprentice jockeys race which always puts me on the back foot but it is being ridden by one of the more experienced jockeys in the race and I'm hoping it can get a clear run from stall 3 to follow up here but I wont be betting too heavily or not at all if its too short in the betting.

Ambitious Boy 14/1 Unp
