Forecast

Kitty Boo (9/4), Salt Whistle Bay (4/1), Pacific Salt (5/1), Rubens Dream (11/2), Adventureman (10/1), Rock Warbler (11/1), Fashaak (12/1), Tan Arabiq (20/1), Candesta (33/1)

Verdict
With a few of these looking held by the handicapper, it will probably be best to side with one in good form recently, such as PACIFIC SALT. This hat-trick seeker won very well indeed at Nottingham last time to continue a recent spell of improvement. A 6lb penalty may prove to be a lenient rise in the weights in time given how stylishly he got the job done on that occasion, and a jockey he gets on well with claims a useful 3lb. The lightly raced Kitty Boo is open to further improvement and could be next best, ahead of Salt Whistle Bay, who would go close if proving himself on better ground.
