Verdict

A tough contest to assess but it might worth taking a chance that the cheekpieces bring a bit more from MA FEE HEELA. He's been running strong races since landing a Dundalk maiden on his third start in the spring. There's scope for more to come and he also gets a useful 7lb off his back with his claiming rider. Similarly, Big Time should be in the mix with Oisin Orr to assist in the saddle while British raider Normandy Barriere is a notable contender with Smullen up. George Bowen was an impressive winner at Nottingham last time out and merits some thought, while any rain would likely be a positive for the consistent Snap Shots.
  1. Ma Fee Heela
  2. Normandy Barriere
  3. George Bowen
