Forecast

Captain Ryan (5/2), Lethal Blast (4/1), Wild Flower (5/1), Teepee Time (5/1), George Thomas (11/2), Heartstar (10/1), Holding My Breath (12/1), Murqaab (16/1), Secret Identity (18/1), Krystallite (18/1), Empty Promises (50/1)

Verdict

LETHAL BLAST is less exposed than the majority of her rivals and shaped with encouragement when fourth in a handicap at Bath last time, leaving the impression a return to this trip should suit. As such, she's preferred to Captain Ryan, who's in good order but faces a 2-day turnaround having met trouble over C&D on Friday.
