Forecasts

Number One London (5/2), Sissinghurst (3/1), Silva Samourai (7/1), Anton Dolin (8/1), Ujagar (8/1), Sweeping Rock (12/1), Tiradia (12/1), John Biscuit (25/1), Distant Sound (33/1), Ermyn's Emerald (66/1)

Verdict

Lots of 'ifs' and 'but's' in a race where the more fancied horses are slowly climbing the weights without necessarily appearing to be overly progressive. Sweeping Rock is an obvious case in point, and whilst he's reliable, he's most certainly vulnerable off top-weight, whilst Market Rasen winner Tiradia needs to fully prove himself over this trip. Number One London looks solid with his latest from franked by Tuesday's Southwell winner Zamoyski, but a real chance is taken on the now Fergal O'Brien trained SISSINGHURST. He is unexposed in handicaps, and the application of a tongue tie suggests some tinkering with his breathing, so hailing from a very shrewd yard, he could prove well placed to step forward markedly on his stable debut in a very winnable contest.
  1. Sissinghurst
  2. Number One London
  3. Tiradia
