Forecast

Chelsea Lad (7/2), Donncha (8/1), Banksea (9/1), Fastnet Tempest (10/1), George William (10/1), Zhui Feng (10/1), El Hayem (12/1), Master Carpenter (14/1), Another Touch (16/1), Storm Ahead (16/1), Fanciful Angel (20/1), Pacify (20/1), Home Cummins (20/1), Sir Roderic (20/1), Mountain Rescue (25/1), Bossy Guest (33/1), London Protocol (33/1), Boomshackerlacker (33/1), Big Baz (50/1), In The Red (50/1), Havre De Paix (50/1)

Verdict

If there is no draw bias or if the bias is low, FASTNET TEMPEST could go well from the front for Franny Norton. He looks less exposed than plenty in here and his trainer has had a flying start to the campaign. Chelsea Lad is another unexposed sort who boasts a similar profile; he looks capable of a bold show for connections that had a winner earlier in the week. Without a lot of pace in the race, it could pay to be prominent and Zhui Feng is sure to be on the front end. He went well for a long way in the Lincoln at Doncaster last time and may come on for that effort.
  1. Fastnet Tempest
  2. Chelsea Lad
  3. Zhui Feng
