Forecast

Vicenzo Mio (5/2), Soarlikeaneagle (4/1), Ted Bach (9/2), Pottlereaghexpress (5/1), Westerberry (11/1), Impulsive Leader (12/1), Bridgets Cross (16/1), Hab Sab (25/1), Hurry Henry (25/1)

Verdict

A very modest heat may fall to the top weight VICENZO MIO who could take this by default with so many question marks hanging over his rivals. He has been decent in his time and wasn't beaten far at all when fourth at Warwick recently. Ted Bach goes chasing for the first time and handles the ground so wouldn't have to improve much at all to figure, while the likes of Pottlereagh Express and Soarlikeaneagle are not out of it either if rising to the task.
  1. Vicenzo Mio
  2. Ted Bach
  3. Soarlikeaneagle
