Forecasts

Geordie B (10/11), Tidal Flow (11/8), Dontbitedabait (15/2), Little Jack (12/1), Broadclyst (12/1), No Hidden Charges (16/1), Voila Eric (25/1), Bellamy's Grey (50/1), King Of The Sharks (66/1), Not Going Out (150/1), Henchard (150/1)

Verdict

GEORDIE B gets a marginal call over dual winner Tidal Flow in what should be an interesting contest. Venetia Williams' charge won in good style last time and in receipt of 6lb can come out on top. Tidal Flow is a decent animal and looked very promising earlier this term. He may improve for this step up in trip and is a danger despite his double penlaty. Dontbitedadait went close on his only point-to-point start and connections paid plenty for him after that so he is respected, and Little Jack could go well despite his obvious quirks.
