Forecasts

The Bay Birch (10/11), Looks Like Power (11/4), Indian Native (6/1), Freddies Portrait (10/1), Riddlestown (14/1)

Verdict

Indian Native failed to fulfil expectations last time and there must be fears her jumping will be tested by these experienced handicappers. Riddlestown will be using this as a launchpad for a spring campaign similar to 2017. Looks Like Power was a revelation last time, but that was inspired by a step up to 3m and his higher mark over this shorter trip means he faces a stiff task in conceding 18lb to THE BAY BIRCH. The mare was a C&D winner before bumping into an improved type last time. Her mark goes up 3lb at the end of the week and she will take plenty of beating.
