Timeform on Counter Balance
MUSTANG JOSH (Trap 6, 18.39) hasn't tasted success since July, yet in truth his exploits in defeat subsequently largely read well in the context of this race. The son of Zero Ten went very close on his latest start in this grade 7 days ago and he is again fancied to play a lead role.
COUNTER BALANCE (Trap 6, 19.57) struggled tackling open company last month, and is easily forgiven his latest effort back in handicap company, trouble around bends 1 & 2 hindering her chance. However, this rates a more suitable affair and she can come out on top.
KETCH UP SAND (Trap 6, 20.15) has yet to open his account at Sheffield, but one thing he boasts over the majority of this evening's rivals is a less exposed profile. His exploits to date, for all they have been modest on the clock, still stand up to close scrutiny and he can come out on top.
