Forecasts

Henpecked (6/4), Perceived (3/1), Iconic Belle (9/2), Normandie Lady (5/1), Rubenesque (7/1)

Verdict

The smallest field of the afternoon, but not a straightforward puzzle to solve. Normandie Lady will surely appreciate the drop in grade, but you can't help but worry about her on account of both trip and surface (AW). Both Henpecked and Perceived will have no problems with this track, but appear as fairly exposed performers overall, whilst Rubenesque could conceivably struggle dropping back from 2m, unless forcing a solid pace throughout. That leaves us with ICONIC BELLE, who should have more to offer over middle distance trips, and looks to have some potential wriggle room from her current (reduced) handicap mark of just 65.
