Forecast

Laburnum Park (3/1), Initially (5/1), Multiviz (5/1), Vocal Experience (7/1), Song Of The Sky (8/1), Voyageofdiscovery (12/1), Busy Bush (14/1), Spartan's Queen (14/1), Art Scene (16/1), Serendib's Glory (20/1), Stadius (20/1), Prince Jock (25/1), Dottie Lottie (25/1), Truly Genius (25/1), Hard Times (33/1), Cantsayrightly (33/1), Scobias (50/1)

Verdict
This is a competitive, if not quality handicap and it will probably pay to look near the top of the weights. INITIALLY ran a good race at a big price last time, and with a hood applied and a return to 1m sure to suit, she could get off the mark at the sixth time of asking. Laburnum Park has been in the most consistent form recently and so has to combat a gradually rising handicap mark but is still feared most, ahead of the potentially well-handicapped Vocal Experience.
