Forecast

Oromo (9/2), Gemologist (5/1), Wot A Shot (11/2), Farlam King (11/2), Great Colaci (9/1), Side Of The Road (10/1), Fillydelphia (14/1), Rioja Day (16/1), Weapon Of Choice (18/1), Classic Seniority (18/1), Newstart (25/1), Elysian Prince (33/1), Wor Verge (33/1), My Valentino (50/1)

Verdict
Strong numerically, but that's about all with no shortage of maidens featuring in the line-up. Former Flat-raced Gemologist is almost certain to be suited by the drying conditions and ran a sound race for her new trainer Lucinda Russell over C&D recently (maiden). She ought to figure high on any short-list along with Farlam King, the newly-cheekpieced mare Side Of The Road and the Musselburgh regular Wot A Shot. However, French-based rider James Reveley teams up with former acquaintance Gillian Boanas aboard the reasonably handicapped front-runner GREAT COLACI. With ground conditions favourable, he looks worthy of a small dabble at the projected odds.
  1. Great Colaci
  2. Side Of The Road
  3. Gemologist
