Forecasts

Good Time Ahead (5/2), Spinning Melody (9/2), Restive (9/2), Moabit (11/2), Snowy Winter (9/1), Epitaph (11/1), Start Seven (12/1), Alton Bay (14/1), Royal Marskell (40/1)

Verdict

A good start to the card with a interesting handicap where some of the main players have already shown that they can act well on this surface. RESTIVE could have been put up a few pounds more by the handicapper for his latest win here and a 6lb rise looks fair and a hat-trick could well be on the cards. Good Time Ahead is another who has made rapid progress on this surface and needs to be respected while the newcomers to fibresand Snowy Winter and Spinning Melody are also of interest particularly the latter with her American pedigree. Start Seven definitely handles this surface and a return to it may well spark him back to life although this trip does looks a little on the short side for him.
  1. Restive
