Forecast

Calarules (7/2), Mister Drifter (4/1), Yellow Kangaroo (5/1), Scales (6/1), Minellatillmorning (7/1), Mr Lando (8/1), Scrumpy Boy (8/1), Whiskey John (20/1), Centreofexcellence (25/1), Victorian Teo (25/1)

Verdict
Yellow Kangaroo is the type to do better now handicapping but ultimately needs to improve to get in the mix here, while the same can be said of Calarules (who benefits from James Bowen in the saddle). SCALES has been round the block a few times but in winning at Newton Abbot in October (admittedly in a weak race) he showed he can still get his head in front and returning to a C&D he has been successful over in the past this could be his chance to resume winning ways.
  1. Scales
  2. Calarules
  3. Yellow Kangaroo
