Betting

Forecast

Isomer (2/1), Thimbleweed (5/2), Felix (9/2), Leader Writer (6/1), Quick (8/1), Voice Of Calm (14/1)

Verdict

FELIX has looked a shadow of his former self this season when bombing out the last twice, but can be given a chance after some operations for a powerful yard in what looks a weak-looking race. His main rival is likely to come from Quick, who took a similar contest at Brighton last time but has proven to be inconsistent while Thimbleweed is now being given a chance by the handicapper to stage a revival, but her current form is off-putting and still has to give weight all round.
  1. Felix
  2. Quick
  3. Thimbleweed
