Forecasts

Windance (5/6), Thunderstruck (2/1), Certainly Red (2/1), Drumlee Watar (13/2), Lugg River (8/1), Albert Hucklebuck (16/1), Just A Whim (28/1), Clonusker Lady (150/1)

Verdict

Progressive and unexposed, WINDANCE is taken to maintain his 100% record in handicaps. A 6 lb rise for his C&D success last time looks very fair indeed, given that the first two pulled well clear of the rest. Conversely, Certainly Red has been hit pretty hard for his Wincanton breakthrough success and bigger threats to the selection may be posed by Thunderstruck and Drumlee Watar.
