Forecasts

Jack Taylor (3/1), Maid Of Spirit (4/1), Enthaar (5/1), Verne Castle (5/1), Grandfather Tom (9/1), Miracle Works (9/1), Wiff Waff (9/1), Harrogate (14/1), Nautical Haven (16/1), Brandy Station (33/1)

Verdict

A very open contest with Wiff Waff holding every chance on the formbook of turning around his narrow defeat behind GRANDFATHER TOM for his new yard. However the latter went on a run of wins last year and he's taken to do the same again. The well-bred Maid Of Spirit is one to note on handicap debut while Jack Taylor is likely to be competitive for a place again. Verne Castle gets a sizeable drop in grade but the surface does raise a question.
  1. Grandfather Tom
  2. Wiff Waff
  3. Jack Taylor
