Forecast

Chasing Headlights (9/4), The Dawn Man (3/1), Djarkevi (4/1), Paddling (4/1), Budarri (8/1), Dallas Cowboy (14/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken that switching yards will revive the fortunes of DJARKEVI, who shaped up nicely in his last few starts for his former trainer and remains open to further progress from a lenient looking mark. Paddling won this race from the same rating last year, so has to be feared as a live danger once more, while Budarri is open to further improvement as he's only had the one previous outing over fences and is also worth considering.
  1. Djarkevi
  2. Paddling
  3. Budarri
