Forecast

Tan (7/1), Extrasolar (7/1), Fire Diamond (15/2), Hadley (8/1), Danish Duke (10/1), Clergyman (12/1), Spirit of Zebedee (12/1), Round The Island (12/1), Melaniemillie (12/1), Mansfield (14/1), Duke Cosimo (14/1), Searanger (16/1), Cool Strutter (16/1), Sarabi (25/1), Robben Rainbow (25/1), Willsy (33/1), Barron's Lad (33/1), Sunnyside Bob (50/1), Etienne Gerard (50/1), A J Cook (66/1)

Verdict

DUKE COSIMO finished a close fifth last time and he can record his fifth win on turf in this 6f sprint handicap. The selection races off a mark 1lb higher than when winning on the AW in January and he can get the better of Searanger who was successful over C&D a week ago while the second that day Melaniemillie is taken to claim third ahead of Hadley who should appreciate the return to the sound surface forecast for this.
  1. Duke Cosimo
  2. Searanger
  3. Melaniemillie
