Forecast

Boutan (3/1), Guardia Top (10/3), Minnie Escape (13/2), Potters Away (13/2), Shadow's Girl (7/1), Kestrel Valley (8/1), Timassini (10/1), At First Light (10/1), Peltwell (12/1), Shroughmore Lass (16/1), Broke Away (16/1), Time For Champers (20/1), Georgian Firebird (33/1), Impulsive Leader (33/1), Bella Beau (50/1), Amlovi (50/1), False Getaway (50/1), Doodle Dandy (50/1)

Verdict

Not the most competitive of handicaps, and two stand out. SHADOW'S GIRL won this last year off a higher mark and has done more than enough since to suggest she can follow up, so is hard to oppose, although Kestrel Valley is another who looks well handicapped on last year's form, and she ran her best race on her reappearance, so may proves best caught fresh. At First Light was the subject of a gamble which didn't miss by far on her sole start last season, and is worth a market check for signs of confidence again.
  1. Shadow's Girl
  2. Kestrel Valley
  3. At First Light
