Forecasts

Truckers Lodge (11/4), Another Emotion (3/1), Virginia Chick (9/2), Vinnie Lewis (7/1), Looks Like Power (12/1), Shannon Bridge (12/1), Anteros (14/1), Buckle Street (14/1), Jeannot De Nonant (20/1), Henryville (40/1)

Verdict

VINNIE LEWIS is marginally preferred to Truckers Lodge in what appears a tightly knit handicap. The selection stays really well and is at the right end of the weights. Truckers Lodge has been hit hard by the handicapper for his latest win but is clearly going the right way and should give another good account of himself. Another Emotion and Virginia Chick also arrive here in good form and won't be far away either on recent evidence.
  1. Vinnie Lewis
  2. Truckers Lodge
  3. Another Emotion
