Forecast

Mime Dance (10/3), Bloodsweatandtears (7/2), Exspectation (9/2), Aye Aye Skipper (7/1), Binky Blue (10/1), Tabla (10/1), De Little Engine (11/1), Mette (12/1), Live Dangerously (16/1), Spike's Princess (33/1)

Verdict
The veteran BLOODSWEATANDTEARS can record his sixth career success in this competitive looking 1m contest. The selection returned to form here last time out and can see off his rivals today with top weight Mime Dance taken to finish best of the remainder by claiming second. A repeat of Aye Aye Skipper's second here in February can be enough to see him claim third.
