Timeform on Run This Way

NAP: Auntie Margaret has a massive chance

Auntie Margaret - 13:39 Pontefract

Auntie Margaret stepped up markedly on her debut form when third at Haydock last time, sticking to her task well to be beaten just a head and a neck in a bunched finish. That form comfortably sets the standard here on Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings, so Auntie Margaret rates a solid selection to get off the mark at the third attempt, with the step up to a mile and a quarter fancied to unlock more improvement.

NEXT BEST: First Account can record first Flat win

First Account - 15:14 Pontefract

First Account has shown only fair form in three starts on the Flat, but there should be more to come from him now stepping up markedly in trip for his handicap debut. He is also refitted with a visor and the pick of his efforts over hurdles suggest a BHA mark of 62 won't prove beyond him when putting it all together on the Flat.

EACH-WAY: Run This Way looks set for a big run

Run This Way - 15:44 Pontefract

Run This Way caught the eye when last seen finishing fourth at Carlisle in August, staying on well from a poor position to be beaten less than two lengths. She is 1 lb lower in the weights here and it's worth remembering that she has been competitive from much higher marks earlier in her career. This will be just her third start for the Paul Midgley yard and she is one to keep on the right side.
