Forecasts

Under The Red Sky (7/2), Master Rajeem (9/2), Orioninverness (5/1), Verko (13/2), Trouble In Paris (8/1), Oak Vintage (9/1), Bandol (10/1), Captain Sharpe (12/1), Silverton (25/1)

Verdict

A race which can be kindly best described as full of equine 'characters'. Both Trouble in Paris and Under The Red Sky are fully signed up members to the smooth travelling but find little off the bridle merchants, with the latter in particular throwing away a golden winning opportunity at Newcastle in January when going down by a nose to Harley's Max. Others such as Oak Vintage and Orioninverness have looked far from natural fencers in their chase starts to date. With Master Rajeem and Bandol both steadily climbing the handicap, a real chance is taken with the out of form VERKO in the hope that his fall down the weights can coincide with a return to form in a race in which little makes any significant appeal.
