Forecasts

Bignorm (15/8), Write It Down (5/1), Celma Des Bois (13/2), Arthur's Reuben (7/1), Dorado Dollar (7/1), Hepburn (10/1), Danseur Du Large (10/1), Hedgeinator (16/1), Beyond Supremacy (20/1), Cheer's Delboy (22/1), Still Believing (22/1), Touch Screen (33/1), Chain Smoker (40/1), Triangle Rock (40/1), Abbey Street (50/1)

Verdict

BIGNORM appears to be thriving all of a sudden and, in a weak affair, he's difficult to oppose bidding to defy a rise for his facile success at Leicester recently. Write It Down is one to note in the market from an ominous mark and Hepburn has been running well of late, so she can't be ruled out.

  1. BIGNORM (IRE)
  2. WRITE IT DOWN (IRE)
  3. HEPBURN
