Making steady improvements and gelded since his last run. Blinkers on and could get more competitive, but not easy to see him winning.

100-1 and well held last of 11 on debut here over 1m (soft) last month. Much more needed.

Still improving as shown by her 2L second over C&D (heavy) last time. Has the strongest form on paper here and any continued improvement will probably make her tough to beat.

66-1 on both starts so far and well beaten over both 6f and 7f on AW. Much improvement needed.

28-11OR:
4/1

9-2 and led much of the way before being beaten 4L on debut at Pontefract (6f, good). That was perhaps a bit more promising than what the bare form figures suggest, and she could be thereabouts this time.

Betting

Forecast

Epona (13/8), Pendleton (2/1), Warning Fire (4/1), Jean Merci (10/1), Gunnabedun (14/1), Key To The Orient (33/1), Bobs Authority (50/1), Caledonia Lass (66/1), Silver Pass (80/1), God Of Dreams (100/1), Milabella (150/1)

Verdict

A poor opener where the form pick is clearly Epona, and she would be no surprise winner, while Pendleton and Gunnabedun are newcomers of interest. However, WARNING FIRE ran well for a long way on debut. She will have learned plenty there and could make significant improvement this time.
  1. Warning Fire
  2. Epona
  3. Pendleton
