Forecasts

This Is It (3/1), Pure Vision (10/3), Alfie's Choice (5/1), The Two Amigos (7/1), Barney From Tyanee (11/1), Schnabel (12/1), Alfred Roller (12/1), St Dominick (12/1), West Torr (14/1)

Verdict

The step up in trip may be just what PURE VISION needs after disappointing last time. Earlier efforts at Lingfield and Uttoxeter suggest that last run was all wrong and the stable are going well at present. The Two Amigos is feared following an improved showing last time but the form did not look strong enough to warrant a 4lb rise in the weights. This Is it is lightly raced but has shown clear ability in that time. He has been crying out for a stiff test such as this and the handicapper has given him a chance. Market moves for either of the handicap debutants Schabel and Alfie's Choice would be interesting.
  1. Pure Vision
  2. The Two Amigos
  3. This Is It
