Forecast

Baraboy (9/2), Grams And Ounces (9/2), Yasir (5/1), Druid's Diamond (6/1), Fiddler's Flight (9/1), Beau Knight (10/1), Royal Act (12/1), Aza Run (14/1), Breeze Along (14/1), Carnaross (20/1), Peak Storm (20/1), Victorian Teo (33/1), La Voix (40/1)

Verdict
Few of these look reliable propositions but at least GRAMS AND OUNCES has won three times on the level this summer and has run well enough on his last two starts to have an obvious chance in a race as poor as this. Beau Knight and Druids Diamond are potential improvers, whilst Yasir bids to follow up a C&D success off a significantly higher mark. That may prove beyond him and a bigger danger may come from Baraboy who chased home Bollin Line last time. That rival completed a hat-trick at Ludlow this week and, despite his mark looking demanding, he has claims of reaching a place at least. Rain would dampen his chances but would help Aza Run.
  1. Grams And Ounces
  2. Baraboy
  3. Druid's Diamond
