GEORGE RIDSDALE (3.55) goes from strength-to-strength and again showed his liking for Gosforth Park with a comfortable victory 15 days ago.
He is up another 8lb but will be hard to keep out of the winners' enclosure for the third time here.
PAX BRITANNICA (2.50) faces her toughest task to date following an 8lb rise for her latest success, but should be up to the task.
She also meets a better type of horse in this Class 4 contest but David Simcock’s three-year-old could well have more to offer. Bobba Tea scored here over 1m 4f but stayed on stoutly into second when tried at this longer distance 18 days ago.
Fourteen runners for the mile handicap and VIVE LA DIFFERENCE (5.25) boasts an excellent course record, notching back-to-back victories last December, one off a 3lb higher mark.
Pacino didn’t enjoy the best of passages when fifth to hot favourite Boston George last time and remains attractively handicapped. Great Colaci runs the track so consistently well that he is another to consider, along with probable favourite Tefnut, making her handicap bow for Keith Dalgleish.
