Has a fine record in this type of race having really benefited from the fitting of cheekpieces. Since including them and when racing over 7f round a bend its record reads 132111282, the 8th coming when upped to class 4 when struggling in that grade. This is back down to class 5 and has been in fine form after winning over a mile at Thirsk before 3rd in a field of 16 at Wetherby which was a class 4. Has had a short break, this race doesn’t look overly strong, this horse is on the upgrade and can continue that progression.

I have picked this purely on the basis of its last run when 4th of 8 beaten just over 3 lengths. The form of that race could not of worked out much better though as the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th have all won since! Tobeornottobe was racing from 3lb out of the handicap but gets to race off its correct mark here whilst it is also down to a class 6 for the first time. Showed a bit of pace and improvement and though some of these are also open to improvement they may struggle to concede weight to this horse.
