Forecasts

Shades Of Midnight (9/4), Ryedale Racer (11/4), Strong Economy (5/1), Pads (6/1), Runswick Royal (8/1), Isaacstown Lad (12/1), Gilt Shadow (14/1), Fago (40/1)

Verdict

A couple of the main protagonists would surely prefer a longer trip and this 2m4f may well be a little on the short side for Isaacstown Lad and Shades Of Midnight. The former in particular looked caught out by this distance last time out and unless he gets a stronger pace now, the story may again be the same. Gilt Shadow has the potential to outclass this field but his fitness must be questioned after such a long absence. Both Ryedale Racer and STRONG ECONOMY make the most appeal as they return and step into handicap company respectively. Strong Economy in particular looks as though he will be suited by handicaps and powered home for his back-to-form stable here last time out. 1. Strong Economy 2. Ryedale Racer 3. Isaacstown Lad
