Forecast

Sepal (7/2), Haymarket (7/2), New Abbey Angel (8/1), Lenoire (8/1), Rosemay (9/1), Stardrifter (10/1), John Caesar (10/1), Penelope Pitstop (11/1), Quiet Company (12/1), Princess Harriet (16/1), Clarabel (20/1), Danny Mc D (22/1), Red Star Dancer (25/1), Granite City Doc (33/1)

Verdict
Just a lowly end to the card with only a few having any relatively solid form to their name and it may well be worth looking at top weight HAYMARKET if he runs again after his recent exertions. He’s probably still a little better than his mark and there aren’t many improvers in this line-up. One who might be capable of improving is Lenoire who is from a yard that do well with this type. Sepal and Rosemay from the Jardine yard are another two worthy of respect with John Caesar capable of running into the places on his best form.
  1. Haymarket
  2. Lenoire
  3. John Caesar
