Forecasts

Lip Service (11/4), Jet Set (3/1), Three Star General (11/2), Sergeant Brody (7/1), Admiral Kid (9/1), Lex Talionis (10/1), Fenlons Court (10/1), Tzar De L'Elfe (12/1), Vango De Vaige (12/1), Cheer's Delboy (12/1), Coeur Pensif (16/1)

Verdict

Jet Set holds obvious claims after shaping with a great deal of promise in maiden/novice events but preference is for LIP SERVICE. Lightly-raced for his age this gelding has been given a break and a wind op since his last start, and if that has helped stop the regression he has shown in his last couples of races he could be well-treated. In an open looking handicap Lex Talionis should enjoy the conditions.
