3/1

Likes to lead but coming from just off the pace over 6f here last time did the trick. Goes back up in trip but equally effective over this far and will be a player again under his penalty.

Reliable and solid performer on his day but these conditions are not his optimum as his likes a bit of cut. Likely to give it a good go nonetheless and a player on a going day.

4/1

This is his best trip and having dropped in the weights he went close at Doncaster three weeks ago. Nudged up 4lbs for not winning but talented riders claim negates that and leading player once again.

7/4

Unexposed three-year-old who likes to bowl along in the lead. This drop in trip and track could well suit and won't be easy to pass if getting a soft lead.

Is now 1lb lower than when successful at Newcastle back in January. Return to this trip is a positive and if they returned to forcing tactics he chances would probably improve.

Betting

Forecast

Sha La La La Lee (7/4), Highland Acclaim (3/1), Handytalk (7/2), Big Storm Coming (4/1), Colonel Frank (4/1), Windsor Cross (15/2)

Verdict

Highland Acclaim won well here over 6f last week and is just as effective at this trip so is very much respected. Sha La La La Lee drops in trip which looks a good move and will be dangerous if granted a soft lead. These conditions are ideal for BIG STORM COMING and he can get back to winning ways here with his talented rider taking off a valuable 5lbs.
  1. Big Storm Coming
  2. Sha La La La Lee
  3. Highland Acclaim
