Forecast

Alans Pride (11/8), Guanabara Bay (5/1), Strategic Heights (6/1), Arlecchino's Rock (7/1), Oor Jock (10/1), Mags Well (12/1), Kiss The Stars (16/1), More Kudos (16/1), Texas Radio (20/1), Barrys Girl (33/1), Andaz (50/1)

Verdict
Plenty of these are under a cloud at the moment and so it might prove wisest to look for some value. Strategic Heights would be a decent prospect in this field were the race being run on an artificial surface, but he has yet to look anything as smart on turf. The likes of Guanabara Bay, Oor Jock and More Kudos were all well beaten off over C&D just six days ago but Alans Pride was second in that race and runs off the same mark now so he could of interest, though he's anything but consistent. Similarly, Arlecchino's Rock is not reliable but his penultimate showing at Gowran Park was enough to put him in the mix for this. A chance is taken on MAGS WELL, who ran well enough in a maiden here in April went well last time out in a handicap over 7f at Wolverhampton on the AW. She wouldn't need a lot more to have a strong chance.
  1. Mags Well
