Forecasts

Honkytonktennessee (11/4), Cernunnos (7/2), Hepijeu (9/2), Play The Ace (11/2), Alberobello (11/2), Queen Spud (7/1), Mr Mafia (8/1), Oyster Shell (16/1)

Verdict

The Peter Bowen-trained Play The Ace could bowl along in front here, with Oyster Shell, Alberobello and Queen Spud, with the front-runner dangerous given he won over C&D in August last year, 6L clear of Hepijeu in second. The pace in the race could play in to the hands of the Richard Johnson-ridden, QUEEN SPUD who could be an each way wager, given the jockeys figures of 62/214/9/313 on the eight-year-old.
  1. Queen Spud
  2. Play The Ace
  3. Honkytonktennessee
