Forecasts

Theflickeringlight (11/4), Off The Hook (7/2), Jessiemac (7/2), Animore (7/1), Island Mahee (17/2), Baby Ticker (11/1), Ulterior Motives (11/1), Calle Malva (16/1), Laskadine (20/1)

Verdict

Three quick runs may have found out THEFLICKERINGLIGHT when she folded tamely at Doncaster in January but there was plenty to like about her wins at Newcastle and Wetherby either side of Christmas. She may resume progress after a short break now. Jessiemac is in fine form and represents a very solid alternative, while Ulterior Motives and Calle Malva are possible improvers lurking.
