Trainer Ben Pauling does well with his runners at Towcester and he has double prospects there this evening.

The Gloucestershire-based handler has sent 16 horses to the track since he started training in 2013 and nine (56.25%) have obliged. His COSWAY SPIRIT is responsible for a third of those wins and the eight-year-old will appreciate the return after finding Stratford too sharp when runner-up as favourite there last time. Prior to that he’d finished second again when failing by just half a length at Huntingdon and he’s clearly at the top of his game right now.

In truth, he’s a hard ride and needs plenty of stoking, while he’s also a stone higher in the weights than winning here by an eased down 16 lengths three starts back. That said, he’s the sort of horse the handicapper is always going to struggle to get a handle on and he’s several pounds better at Towcester than anywhere else. He also goes particularly well for today’s pilot David Bass, who has steered him to two of his three victories and is likely to adopt aggressive tactics.
