Forecast

Lightly Squeeze (3/1), Southfield Torr (4/1), The Brothers (6/1), Shaw's Cross (15/2), Everlanes (8/1), Desiremoi D'Authie (11/1), Justice Knight (14/1), Percy Prosecco (14/1), Midnight Jitterbug (16/1), Pardon Me (20/1), Candyman Can (20/1), Ormskirk (22/1), Midnight Midge (25/1), The Mighty Ash (25/1), Dont Be Robin (40/1), Fred's Filly (50/1), Yorkshire Star (50/1), Phoenix Firebird (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of runners, but only a few appeal. They include The Brothers, Shaw's Cross, Everlanes and Southfield Torr, but clear preference is for LIGHTLY SQUEEZE, who might have won last time but for a couple of crucial mistakes and retains plenty of potential off his current mark.
  1. Lightly Squeeze
  2. Southfield Torr
  3. The Brothers
