Carlisle Tips: Weeton
Desperately unlucky when potential winning debut was scuppered by interference. Repeat will send him close.
Weeton returns to the scene of his debut ten days ago and connections must be hoping for better luck. The form book says he was beaten a head but that doesn’t tell half the story.
Restrained behind a steady pace, he came with a strong run up the fair rail only to be baulked in the shadow of the post by the runner-up veering across him. The runner-up was demoted to third and Weeton promoted but it cost him victory as John Kirkup enjoyed a trouble free passage down the outside.
In defeat Weeton ran the fastest closing sectional by 0.23s and earned an adjusted speed rating of 92. He is due compensation.
