Betting

Forecast

Iconic Knight (6/4), Knockout Blow (2/1), Deviate (11/2), Another Situation (12/1), No More Commisery (16/1), Shamrock Emma (16/1), Shadow Seeker (25/1), Pretty Risky (25/1), Poppy Jag (100/1)

Verdict
Knockout Blow is a definite danger if bouncing back from a very disappointing performance at Chester last time, but preference is for DEVIATE. Tom Dascombe's filly has top-weight to defy here despite her sex, but returns to a relatively weak-looking novice event having run very well in handicap company last time out and also having proven she can cut it at this level, unlike most of these. Shamrock Emma should do better than she did on debut and is also considered.
  1. Deviate
  2. Knockout Blow
  3. Shamrock Emma
