Forecasts

Dotties Dilema (7/4), Drumlang (7/2), Pretty Reckless (4/1), Ronnie Lawson (6/1), Zayfire Aramis (8/1), Red Square Revival (12/1), Bally Lagan (16/1), Time And Again (20/1), Heurtevent (25/1), Vote Of Confidence (50/1)

Verdict

Not the most competitive of handicap chases. Dotties Dilemma has won his last two races and, as he seems to save a bit for himself at the finish, could well defy his penalty. That said, he is vulnerable and although she comes with risks, the suggestion is PRETTY RECKLESS, who will be racing over fences for only the second time, is on a lowly handicap mark and hails from a shrewd stable which has quickly embarked on this course of action. Ronnie Lawson may be the best of two stable representatives, while bottom weight Drumalang can figure if he does not succumb to the bounce factor after running well after a long lay-off.
  1. Pretty Reckless
  2. Dotties Dilema
  3. Drumlang
