Forecasts

Eddy (2/1), Market Road (3/1), Scrumpy Boy (4/1), Cosmic Diamond (8/1), Not At All (9/1), Magnus Romeo (10/1), Wells Gold (12/1), Gonnabegood (14/1), Starlit Night (16/1), Hurricane Ridge (20/1), Without Frontier (28/1), Drewmain Legend (50/1)

Verdict

Both Not At All and Wells Gold should be monitored for market support with the tongue tie now fitted, and it should be noted that Fergal O'Brien has already struck with a similar sort to Wells Gold (Sissisinghurst) lately. However, others have more obvious form claims, and these include both Cosmic Diamond, who saw her recent winning form well advertised by Shrubland at the weekend, and the returning Market Road, who is partnered by the apprentice of the moment Mitchell Bastyan. Connections of recent C&D winner EDDY swerved a penalised clash (7lb) with the thriving Plantagenet at Worcester last week in order to return to the South West seeking to follow up off a 10lb higher mark, and that's surely informative enough to suggest that their eight-year-old gelding has a little more improvement left in the locker.
