Forecasts

Nachi Falls (7/2), Scotsbrook Night (7/2), Raving Bonkers (11/2), Vanderbilt (13/2), Annajemima (7/1), Serveontime (10/1), Greenview Paradise (11/1), Last Chance Paddy (14/1), Ali The Hunter (14/1), Ideal Grace (22/1)

Verdict

RAVING BONKERS might have gone close to winning but for being badly hampered 2 out and forced to pull out at Southwell recently. He can gain compensation this time. Scotsbrook Night shaped as though capapble of winning at this level when leading for much of the way on her first start back and will be sharper now. She looks the main danger to the selection. The handicapper has given Serveontime a chance on his first run for 20 months and it would be interesting if he finds favour in the betting markets, while Vanderbilt, hugely frsutrating, remains a horse capable of winning a race and has run well all three previous attempts at this venue.
  1. Raving Bonkers
  2. Scotsbrook Night
  3. Vanderbilt
