Forecasts

Betterthanalright (4/1), Lacken Bridge (9/2), Quickasyoucan (6/1), Fergiethelegend (7/1), Flathertys Gap (7/1), Enduring Love (8/1), Cadawill (11/1), Double Windsor (11/1), Asitsohappens (16/1), So Influential (20/1), Do Be Doin' (25/1)

Verdict

LACKEN BRIDGE is relatively unexposed and a 7lb rise for the improvement he showed to get off the mark is potentially lenient. Betterthanalright is holding his form well and another honest performance will take him close, whilst Quickasyoucan was run out of it close home last time and he should be close to peak shape having recently returned from a long break.
