Forecasts

Decoration Of War (11/8), Outlaw Jack (9/4), Watching Brief (4/1), Lurgoe (9/2), Hillview (12/1), One Handsome Dude (12/1), Ivilnoble (18/1), Confab (28/1), Eurowork (33/1), Stripe Of Honour (66/1)

Verdict

This stiffer test should suit LURGOE on handicap debut so he is expected to go well despite being 2 lb out of the weights. Decoration of War looked all stamina when scoring at Cartmel last week and should go close again under a penalty.

  1. LURGOE (GER)
  2. DECORATION OF WAR (IRE)
  3. ONE HANDSOME DUDE (IRE)
