Forecast

Rebecca Rocks (3/1), Jashma (3/1), Midnightly (7/2), Mercers (4/1), Lightoller (15/2), Who Told Jo Jo (10/1), Grecian Divine (16/1), Taurean Gold (25/1)

Verdict
A few of these have already got some good form in the book, and have plenty of scope to improve. MIDNIGHTLY fits that description having won a Chelmsford maiden last year before running creditably at Windsor on handicap debut last time. Up only 1lb for that impressive performance, more improvement can be expected from Rae Guest's filly. Mercers is another filly who looks potentially well handicapped on the basis of some recent all-weather performances, while Rebecca Rocks is also worth a mention, having been allotted a potentially lenient opening mark.
