Verdict

A relatively open-looking race where few can be easily discounted. GRACEFUL JAMES would have to defy top weight in order to claim victory here but clearly likes his course and is 2-2 over this C&D. Coupled with the fact he seems to still be progressing, and his effort last time was a career-best, he looks set to run another huge race here. Recent Wolverhampton scorer Ice Dancing and Bridge Of Sighs in first time cheek pieces are others to consider.
  1. Graceful James
  2. Ice Dancing
  3. Bridge Of Sighs
