Betting

Forecast

Minellatillmorning (2/1), Tactical Manoeuvre (11/4), The Green Ogre (7/1), Radical Archie (8/1), Goldslinger (10/1), Navajo War Dance (12/1), Prettylittlething (12/1), Willshebetrying (12/1), Silver Ticket (25/1)

Verdict
A pair of unpenalised Taunton scorers likely to frame the market here, with MINELLATILLMORNING earning the call. He was a notable improver on his handicap bow in a conditionals contest last time and should be able to add to his tally with Noel Fehily taking over in the saddle now. Tactical Manoeuvre will make a race of it having won the second division of the same conditionals event 11 days ago. That race perhaps lacked great depth and, despite the rider's claim, he may settle for second best. The Green Ogre and Willshebetrying are worth close scrutiny in the betting.
  1. Minellatillmorning
  2. Tactical Manoeuvre
  3. The Green Ogre
