Forecast

Landing Zone (10/3), Lady De Vesci (9/2), Cache Queen (11/2), Sweet Affection (11/2), Tio Esteban (15/2), Drummer (8/1), Relaxing Mode (17/2), Followme Followyou (10/1), Glory (16/1), Santorini Sun (18/1), Toughari (20/1), Jack Berry House (22/1), Nudge The Judge (25/1), Canford Light (25/1), Red Beacon (28/1), Olly's Folly (33/1), Tenth Amendment (33/1), Bass Reeves (40/1), Angel In The Sky (40/1), Lieutenant Silver (50/1), Stadius (50/1)

Verdict
A tough handicap in which a handful are likely to stake a claim, preference is for the handicap debutante SWEET AFFECTION, who has shaped with promise in her three starts to do well in this company and sneaks into this race off of a very workable mark. Tio Esteban looks the best of the rest and should have no problem stepping up from his most recent effort at Gowran Park, while the likes of Cache Queen and Landing Zone represent yards who have started the season in likeable form.
