Tactical Manoeuvre (9/4), Neetside (5/1), My Lady Grey (6/1), Et Apres Thou (8/1), Amzac Magic (8/1), Timetobenefit (10/1), Maasai Warrior (14/1), Mr Magill (16/1), Truckers Tangle (18/1), Flanagans Field (25/1), Getaman (25/1), Streets Of Fire (33/1), Auenwirbel (33/1), Cottonvale (40/1), Ali The Hunter (40/1), Havacuppa (50/1), Gold Man (66/1)

Verdict

MY LADY GREY is a speculative choice in a race where most are struggling. She showed improved form last time and has her first start in a handicap with a good conditional booked. Tactical Manoeuver is one of the few in form coming here following his recent win at Exeter and should make a bold bid off his 7lb hgher mark, and there are a number of others who could figure if in the mood, including Timetobenefit, Auenwirbel, Mr Magill, and Et Apres Thou.
  1. My Lady Grey
  2. Timetobenefit
  3. Tactical Manoeuvre
