Forecast

Suitcase 'n' Taxi (13/8), Break The Silence (3/1), Searanger (6/1), Bee Machine (15/2), Strict (8/1), Epona (12/1), Sooqaan (14/1), Abie's Hollow (14/1), Geography Teacher (20/1), Any Smile (33/1), The Golden Cue (33/1), Newstead Abbey (40/1), Longville Lilly (80/1)

Verdict
It remains to be seen how long the good spell of SUITCASE 'N' TAXI lasts but he looked a natural on this surface last time when defeating a good Fibresand yardstick in Break The Silence with Bee Machine back in third and despite a 5lb penalty he’s taken to confirm that form. Searanger has some bits and pieces of form here but it’s arguable if his style of racing will really be suited by this track whilst five-time course winner Sooqaan needs to find some form before he’s of interest. One who does interest greatly is the Mick Appleby newcomer to the Fibresand Strict, he showed plenty of promise at Newbury and a market move here would be significant.
