Forecasts

Progress Drive (9/4), Quietly (11/4), Perfect Pirate (3/1), Ryedale Racer (10/3), Dr West (28/1), Rocku (250/1)

Verdict

A decent little contest to kick off, with Ryedale Racer burdened with penalties for those pair of early season successes. Perfect Pirate took a big step forward last time on hurdles debut at this trip, but Kelso is a very different test to Towcester. Quietly looks a strong stayer and is generally progressive, but again you wouldn't be 100% certain that this sharper track will suit, so the vote goes to the Nicky Richards trained PROGRESS DRIVE with regular rider Stephen Mulqueen taking off a valuable 5lbs on this top rated (127) runner. 1. Progress Drive 2. Quietly 3. Perfect Pirate
