Forecast

Perfect Pirate (3/1), Ratfacemcdougall (7/2), Black Centaur (7/2), Royal Claret (7/2), Nifty At Fifty (4/1), Lugg River (11/2), Flowing Cadenza (13/2), Three Ways (16/1), Adimelo (22/1), Three Colours Red (33/1)

Verdict

The combination of the return to a longer trip and refitting of blinkers should help PERFECT PIRATE who gets the nod here on the back of a decent comeback run at Southwell. Nifty at Fifty could pose a threat if putting his best foot forward, while Royal Claret's 2-2 C&D record also affords her respect.

  1. PERFECT PIRATE
  2. NIFTY AT FIFTY (IRE)
  3. ROYAL CLARET
