Forecast

Norse Legend (7/2), Great Tempo (9/2), Norman The Red (6/1), Hit The Highway (6/1), Camron De Chaillac (8/1), Robinsson (17/2), Deebaj (10/1), Present Times (12/1), Kings Lad (20/1), Mighty Vic (33/1), Occasionally Yours (50/1)

Verdict
Kings Lad and Norse Legend both represent the winning yard from this race in 2016 and a good case can be made for both. Deebaj warrants consideration and it would be no surprise to see a lively showing from Norman The Red back in a handicap. The selection although not a strong one is HIT THE HIGHWAY; who showed more at Newbury last time on just his second start for the yard and if he can build on that he will go well.
  1. Hit The Highway
  2. Norman The Red
  3. Norse Legend
