Forecast

Exploiteur (4/5), Gustavian (3/1), The Captains Inn (5/1), Dadsintrouble (13/2), Trixster (9/1), Broughtons Admiral (12/1)

Verdict

Though his wellbeing needs taking on trust following a lengthy layoff, THE CAPTAINS INN represents an in-form yard and makes the switch to handicap company off what looks a potentially handy mark. Needless to say, confidence levels will heighten if the market vibes are positive. Exploiteur is an obvious threat on the back of his Ffos Las success, while Trixster and Gustavian also command respect.
