LADY ISABEL (11.50) ran third to in-form Beat The Heat 17 days ago and has been found a winning opportunity back at Southwell.
She may have found 1m 6f over-stretching her stamina reserves that day and will be more at home over this 1m 3f trip, a distance she won over at Windsor last month. A visor replaces her usual cheek-pieces.
Grimthorpe Castle has been running out of his skin on the Fibresand but will do well to defy a 5lb penalty for his latest narrow success. He was beaten almost 13 lengths by Beat The Heat at the end of October when in receipt of 12lb and has a bit to find with Lady Isabel on a collateral form line.
Helix looked ahead of the handicapper when responding positively to the fitting of blinkers at Kempton ten days ago and rates a threat. Kingson must prove his stamina over this longer distance on Fibresand debut.
USTATH (12.20) has taken so well to this surface that he should be capable of overcoming a double penalty in the 6f handicap, with talented apprentice Tyler Heard taking off 7lb.
