Forecasts

Snapdragon Fire (7/4), All Is Good (15/8), Captain Jack (6/1), Catcher On The Go (10/1), Oologist (14/1), Inniscastle Lad (16/1), Jaune Et Bleue (20/1), Ring Eye (20/1), Sue Be It (25/1), Unsafe Conduct (28/1), Wenceslaus (40/1), Boxer Beat (100/1)

Verdict

Not the strongest of contests and, on the face of things, a winnable opportunity for SNAPDRAGON FIRE on his handicap debut with Richard Johnson booked. Tom Lacey's gelding confirmed himself on the upgrade when finishing third in a novice event at Newcastle last time and is unlikely to be inconvenienced by dropping back in trip in testing conditions. Fellow handicap debutants Captain Jack, Unsafe Conduct and Oologist may prove most troublesome.
  1. Snapdragon Fire
  2. Captain Jack
  3. Unsafe Conduct
