Forecasts

Solomn Grundy (10/3), Duke Street (6/1), Two Swallows (13/2), Luccombe Down (8/1), Mr Clarkson (8/1), Big Easy (8/1), Solstice Star (9/1), Rolling Maul (10/1), Scotchtown (10/1), Back To The Thatch (25/1), Western Climate (25/1), Seas Of Green (50/1)

Verdict

Big Easy is clearly very interesting especially as he returns to a race he’s won before after a sound return despite being pulled-up. Quite a few have to bounce back here after poor runs last time out and Scotchtown looks the one out of that group ho could well be able to do that. Mr Clarkson will have to improve a little on what he has done so far but you couldn’t rule that out. One who does look as though he’ll be well suited by this test having been given a lot to do last time out is SOLOMN GRUNDY and he can improve again over this trip.
  1. Solomn Grundy
  2. Big Easy
  3. Mr Clarkson
