Forecasts

Main Fact (6/4), Flegmatik (3/1), Mcgowan's Pass (7/1), Khage (9/1), Secrete Stream (11/1), Zizaneur (14/1), Baracalu (16/1), Keyboard Gangster (22/1), Gennady (33/1)

Verdict

The four-timer seeking Main Fact & Khage (third to Secrete Stream previously) are re-routed from Saturday's cancelled fixture at Newbury. The David Pipe-trained runner remains at the right end of the handicap despite a combined 12lb rise for wins at Uttoxeter and Ffos Las, and he'll appreciate these testing conditions. However, there are possibly better-priced each-way alternatives, which include the thoroughly likeable McGowan's Pass and the perfectly capable ZIZANEUR. The selection has failed to complete a race this season (UPUU) and while that's not exactly a ringing endorsement, he makes appeal as a potentially interesting candidate back over hurdles.
  1. Zizaneur
