Forecasts

Cockley Beck (11/4), Massini's Lady (9/2), Floramoss (9/2), Cerca Trova (13/2), Sultana Belle (8/1), The Delray Munky (9/1), Topham Bay (10/1), Side Of The Road (14/1)

Verdict

Not a huge amount of strength in depth in this handicap hurdle and with stronger handling Floramoss would have been of more interest. Topham Bay has caught the eye on a few occasions but this trip looks a little on the short side for her while Sultana Belle with the blinkers on for the first time looks to have a fairly stiff task from out of the handicap. Cerca Trova was a fortunate winner last time out over fences but the jockey booking (Brian Hughes) does take the eye. Massinis Lady is not certain to build on her good run last time and this could be best left to COCKLEY BECK who ran well behind a couple of smart sorts last time and looks fairly handicapped off a mark of 102 on her debut.
  1. Cockley Beck
  2. Floramoss
  3. Topham Bay
