Forecasts

Broken Quest (13/8), Herewego Herewego (5/2), Snapdragon Fire (4/1), The Sweeney (7/1), Trust The Man (10/1), Roll Of The Dice (20/1)

Verdict

Herewego Herewego has made a bright enough start to his career and with conditions and trip just about right for now, he is very interesting on his handicap debut and is entitled to plenty of respect. BROKEN QUEST did not face anything of his ability at Kempton last time, but the way he dispatched his field there was nonetheless impressive and with his 7lb rise negated by his claimer, he could be good enough to follow-up. The Sweeney is another of interest after a decent first handicap run and is not ruled out.
  1. Broken Quest
