Forecast

Bears Rails (11/4), Talk Of The South (4/1), City Supreme (9/2), Leith Hill Lad (9/2), Riddlestown (6/1), Velvet Cognac (10/1), Frank N Fair (12/1)

Verdict

Modest fayre here and despite going up 3lb for his defeat last time, BEARS RAILS is the suggestion given that we know he stays well and acts on testing ground. City Supreme has the ability to make an impact from today's mark but market confidence would be preferable given that so far his record when fresh is ordinary. Leith Hill Lad is likely to be in the mix if he can handle the ground, while both Talk Of The South and Velvet Cognac come here off poor runs, but would each have squeak if on song. Frank N Fair is also respected despite being 4lb 'wrong'.
  1. Bears Rails
  2. Frank N Fair
  3. Leith Hill Lad
