Forecasts

Too Many Shots (9/4), Cape Cruiser (11/4), Let's Be Happy (15/2), Kenyan (8/1), Conkering Hero (10/1), Charlie Rascal (10/1), Espresso Martini (12/1), Trautmann (12/1), Lady Of York (16/1), Mushareefa (16/1), Take A Turn (16/1), Netley Abbey (18/1), Geordielad (20/1)

Verdict

This race is a really tricky affair and finding the winner will not be easy. Bottom weight Lady of York could well grab an early lead and has shown enough promise to suggest that she can win a race of this nature. TOO MANY SHOTS has had a couple of decent seconds over this course and distance and could make it third time lucky. Charlie Rascal is certainly one to consider, but a bigger threat is likely to come from Let's Be Happy, who should be suited by the longer trip and was a good winner at Wolverhampton just under a year ago.
  1. Too Many Shots
  2. Let's Be Happy
  3. Charlie Rascal
