Forecast

Ship Of The Fen (6/4), Emenem (11/2), Beer With The Boys (6/1), Imphal (7/1), Unit of Assessment (8/1), Knight Crusader (10/1), Machine Learner (12/1), Gwafa (20/1), Toshima (33/1), Medburn Cutler (50/1)

Verdict

Despite the official result IMPHAL made an eye-catching start off the back of an absence and over a trip which is 2f shorter, there could be enough improvement left to see him land this contest for connections who usually thrive at this track. Ship Of The Fen ran with great credit off his current mark on his latest start, but he was well held that day and may need to drop slightly in the handicap to get his head in front again. Unit Of Assessment and Beer With The Boys remain slightly unexposed in this company and have live chances.
  1. Imphal
  2. Ship Of The Fen
  3. Unit of Assessment
