Forecasts

Up For Discussion (7/2), Theydon Park (4/1), Presenting Beara (7/1), Station Closed (7/1), Nobody Home (8/1), The Rite Article (9/1), Megara (11/1), Tigroney (12/1), Whatever It Takes (12/1), Bearly Legal (12/1), Cristy's Call (14/1), State Of Origin (20/1), Playbook (20/1), Batchelors Walk (25/1), Don Franco (25/1), Ajabindejaw (25/1), Some Drama (33/1), Hero De Villeneuve (33/1), Polish Partisan (33/1)

Verdict

A case cannot be made for many of these, but that certainly does not apply to UP FOR DISCUSSION, who might well have won last time had he not fallen. He runs off the same mark here and can beat The Rite Article, who is feasibly handicapped on his victory in a similar contest a year ago, and Theydon Park, who is improving gradually and can make a bold show. Station Closed has to enter calculations despite a hefty weight rise, while Don Franco could figure if taking to cheekpieces.
