Forecast

Never A Word (11/4), Veiled Secret (9/2), Raving Bonkers (5/1), Chance It (13/2), Minnie Escape (13/2), Chatelier (8/1), Verbitude (12/1), Ladies Dancing (14/1), Here's Bingo (20/1), Trogir (50/1)

Verdict

A low-grade handicap in which minimum stakes are advise for those having a monetary interest in this contest. The lightly raced Verbitude progressed with each of his three starts in juvenile hurdles last season. However, the handicapper may have overreacted to his overall form by handing him a stiff opening mark. Never A Word has been in consistent form the last twice, & should be bang there again after finishing second to the in-form Akkapenko at Sedgefield recently. We'll take a chance on the fitness of VEILED SECRET who returns to the track for the first time in 189 days, but posted a career best when last seen and should have some more improvement in him this season.
  1. Veiled Secret
  2. Verbitude
  3. Never A Word
