Forecasts

Sheila's Fancy (10/3), Ostuni (4/1), Dandolo Du Gite (4/1), Seaston Spirit (9/2), Cracker Jak (5/1), Coastal Drift (6/1), Smart Boy (10/1), Notre Ami (12/1), Don't Tell George (20/1), Alliteration (33/1)

Verdict

Few of these can be supported with confidence but Sheila's Fancy landed a similar race last time and could well defy a penalty. However, Paul Nicholls' OSTUNI makes his handicap debut following an improved effort last time. A tongue-tie may rectify whatever stopped him in his tracks last time and a mark off 100 looks realistic. Alliteration makes each-way appeal with James Bowen on board, whilst Coastal Drift is a potential improver now handicapping.
