Forecast

Friday Night Light (11/4), Mahlervous (7/2), Comrade Conrad (4/1), Volpone Jelois (7/1), Peruvien Bleu (8/1), Unison (10/1), Go Long (12/1), Blairs Cove (12/1)

Verdict

The improving Friday Night Light holds obvious claims having won on soft ground at Newbury last time but a chance is taken on UNISON. Not disgraced behind The New One in Grade 2 company last time out this is obviously a much easier assignment and he's only 3lb higher than when winning well at Huntingdon in November. Comrade Conrad took a step forward to get off the mark at Ludlow last time and completes the tricast.
  1. Unison
  2. Friday Night Light
  3. Comrade Conrad
