Forecast

How's My Friend (9/2), Armedandbeautiful (5/1), Leith Hill Legasi (13/2), Carqalin (8/1), Goring One (10/1), General Girling (10/1), How's Vienna (10/1), Backoftherock (12/1), Shanann Star (14/1), Wish In A Well (14/1), Snowball (14/1), Cheat The Cheater (14/1), Residence And Spa (16/1)

Verdict

LEITH HILL LEGASI made a fairly positive return to action last month at Chepstow and drops a grade now, giving Charlie Longsdon's runner a sound claim. She has a decent strike rate over fences (3-18, with four more placed efforts) and all those wins have come on soft/heavy going. Any rain would therefore further boost her chance. How's My Friend likes this track, finishing runner-up in in four of his five previous visits and arrives in decent form while previous C&D scorer How's Vienna is worth keeping an eye on first start for his new yard. General Girling and Shanann Star are also capable of getting involved.
  1. Leith Hill Legasi
  2. How's My Friend
  3. How's Vienna
