Forecast

Nendrum (5/2), Morning With Ivan (7/2), Urban Kode (9/2), Character Onesie (6/1), Titus Bolt (8/1), The Compeller (12/1), Life Knowledge (12/1), Peters Grey (16/1), Read'em And Weep (25/1)

Verdict
NENDRUM has proven to be a different horse under a change of tactics on recent starts. He arrives in form unlike many in the line up and he's likely to prove hard to beat given the handicapper has only put him up 4lb for his most recent win. Titus Bolt needs to build on his most recent more promising effort while Morning With Ivan is in form despite a stiff mark and may be able to finish in the first three home.
  1. Nendrum
  2. Titus Bolt
  3. Morning With Ivan
