Forecasts

Garrane (7/2), In The Hold (9/2), Georgina Joy (11/2), Ballyantics (6/1), Classico Dais (15/2), Fearsome Fred (8/1), River Dun (10/1), Minella Gathering (11/1), Admiral Blake (22/1), Residence And Spa (25/1), Deckers Delight (25/1), Whiskey John (25/1), De Bene Esse (33/1), Classula (33/1), Dirty Dexter (40/1)

Verdict

They made plenty of use of GEORGINA JOY and tried to lead all the way here last time, just getting nailed close home. Slightly more patient tactics may make the necessary difference. Classico Dais is one for the shortlist returning from a break having shown some form in the autumnn, and Catterick chase winner In The Hold is in good heart and won't be far away switching to timber off a similar mark. Fearsome Fred and Garrane are not out of it, while there could be better to come from the relatively unexposed Garrane.
  1. Georgina Joy
  2. Garrane
  3. Classico Dais
