Forecast

Atletico (13/8), Kimberella (10/3), Royal Birth (7/1), Gracious John (8/1), Tomily (9/1), Doctor Sardonicus (10/1), Bowson Fred (10/1), Boom The Groom (14/1), Line Of Reason (20/1), Orvar (25/1), Poyle Vinnie (33/1)

Verdict
An intriguing high quality sprint handicap which would be worthy of top billing on a Saturday afternoon AW fixture, let alone late on a Saturday Evening. Kimberella is an obvious focal point, and turf or AW, it all comes alike to him granted a fierce early pace for which to take aim at from mid race. He's definite short-list material following an excellent effort behind Kachy in a Listed contest latest. Stuart Williams saddles Royal Birth, and whilst his inside draw mightn't be ideal, he could represent some each-way value at a track which seems to suit, whilst Orvar is a bit of an unknown quantity following wind surgery. He debuts for Paul Midgley after being sold by previous trainer Robert Cowell for 42,000 gns. However, the best advice is to row in with the fast improving six-year-old ATLETICO. He was mugged close home in a Fast Track Qualifier at Newcastle last month (Conditions Stakes), otherwise he would have arrived sporting a perfect 3 from 3 record on synthetics. Racing off the same handicap mark tonight, he's taken to record a second career Wolverhampton success.
