Forecasts

Casemates Square (15/8), Snowy Winter (4/1), Affair (6/1), High Wells (7/1), My Brother Mike (7/1), Trautmann (10/1), Henry Did It (18/1), Masterfilly (20/1), Street Jester (50/1)

Verdict

Dropping back in trip is a slight concern for Affair so the in-form filly is taken on with SNOWY WINTER, who has a bit more scope at present and may be worth chancing on the predicted ground. (A little rain before the off would be a big bonus though.) My Brother Mike ran well above market expectations last time out but this is a much weaker looking contest, so also has sound claims of making the frame once more.
  1. Snowy Winter
  2. Affair
  3. My Brother Mike
