Timeform on Final Messi
FINAL MESSI (Trap 1, 14.08) has found his feet of late, winning 2 of his last 3 starts and going close in his hat-trick bid in this grade 6 days ago. He's still very much a youngster with potential for better still being a November 16' whelp and he is fancied to turn handy and come out on top.
A feature of BRIGHT BUDDY's (Trap 5, 15.28) recent exploits has been his consistency, trapping fast and filling the runners-up spot on each of his last 3 starts. Sandwiched between two hounds who have recently emerged from lay-offs, he is fancied to again poach an early lead and with his recent efforts standing up on the clock, a bold show looks on the cards.
RUSSELENA HAWK (Trap 5, 15.48) has a very lightly-raced profile but he has often shown flashes of excellent form, not least when accounting for A3 rivals on his most recent start. Packing a good punch for the duration of the 500 metre trip, he looks to hold sound claims on the terms of this handicap, and provided he can avoid potential trouble spots down the back straight, all looks set fair for another big run from Martin Cutler's charge.
