Forecast

Weekend Offender (7/4), Kentuckyconnection (7/2), Royal Regent (9/2), Bahama Moon (11/2), Desert Way (13/2), Royal Shaheen (8/1), Gworn (17/2), Testa Rossa (16/1), Mutamaded (20/1), Corton Lad (22/1)

Verdict
An interesting and competitive handicap with plenty that have had success here in the past with the most notable among that group being Gworn, Testa Rossa and Royal Regent with the first-named of that trio probably the one capable of adding to his good course record. WEEKEND OFFENDER does have quite a compelling and progressive profile though and if he gets a strong gallop he’ll be able to go one better than his run here last time out. Desert Way isn’t out of this if she can cope with the quicker ground and higher grade with Kentuckyconnection capable of getting involved if in a tractable mood as he drops in class.
  1. Weekend Offender
  2. Gworn
  3. Desert Way
