Forecast

Odds On Oli (7/2), Drover (5/1), Global Wonder (11/2), Rock On Bertie (13/2), Hollywood Dream (7/1), Ventura Crest (8/1), Troop (12/1), Foxrush Take Time (14/1), Lulu Star (16/1), Molly Mayhem (20/1), Furze Lady (25/1)

Verdict

A combined total of 79 career starts so far, but not one of the 11 declared runners has managed to hit the target, so this race is effectively a maiden masquerading as a handicap. Global Wonder shaped with encouragement at Wolverhampton latest and is worth a try over a longer trip, whilst this could finally be the day for Odds On Oli. However such is the paucity of opposition, we'll aim a dart at a horse at a bigger price and hope to hit the bulls-eye. DROVER cost plenty, but could have more too offer on the back of three quick turf starts for a handicap mark in the summer of 2017. Gelded, wearing cheek-pieces on AW/Handicap debut, he has far less convictions than most.
