Forecasts

Primal Focus (2/1), Stonebrigg Legend (5/2), Mr Love (11/4), Come On Charlie (4/1), Point Of Departure (11/1), Why Lie (25/1)

Verdict

COME ON CHARLIE is the safest option in what again looks like being a tactical race. The gelding has the choice of setting his own tempo and may well confirm he has the legs to cope with his revitalised old rival Stonebrigg Legend. There may be more to come from Primal Focus but he too needs to step things up after just failing to justify favouritism last time (finished just over 3L behind Stonebrgg Legend). Mr Love may also have more to offer and is likely to strip fitter after his recent return from a wind operation.
  1. Come On Charlie
