Forecasts

Beardwood (5/2), Sound Bar (11/4), Swiftsure (7/2), Niblawi (9/2), Kingthistle (10/1), Apres Midi (12/1)

Verdict

The only three-year-old in the field Sound Bar could be expected to take a step forward from his handicap debut over this longer trip while Niblawi is of interest for his new connections although his mark is a lot higher than when last seen in winning form. Apres Midi would be helped by getting a soft lead which could happen with a strong pace looking to suit Beardwood who could really do with stepping up to 1m4f. Swiftsure may well be better now he’s no longer a colt but does have to show more than he did at York and a chance is taken with KINGTHISTLE. He’s yet to win on turf but has run to a decent level in some tough contests and the new headgear combination could well eke out the necessary improvement.
  1. Kingthistle

  3. Niblawi
