Forecasts

Verdict

Heartful opened his account in good style on the AW last time out and is not going to be underestimated in famous colours for this handicap bow. It won't be any surprise to see him go close, but he's likely to be priced accordingly. Honor Oak is also one to note off a break while Tenerezza has improved under this trainer and might prove a different proposition on return to turf. Harbour A Secret is another going the right way but this might go to SAGA ALTAIS, who shaped well on handicap bow at Limerick over the trip and on just his fifth run could have more to offer. The hat-trick seeking Keep Believing might find his latest hike, along with a third run in 12 days, enough to halt progress for now.
  1. Saga Altais
