Forecasts

Darius Des Bois (2/1), Silent Steps (11/2), Sir Will (15/2), Uncle Alastair (9/1), Ocean Cove (10/1), Spider's Bite (10/1), Voie Dans Voie (12/1), Trongate (12/1), Lime Street (16/1), Aloomomo (16/1), It's Your Move (33/1)

Verdict

Darius Des Bois will attract plenty of attention given his manner of victory last time. The form amounts to little however and SPIDERS BITE achieved far more when beating a useful rival at Ludlow with far more in hand than the margin indicates. Henry Daly's charge is open to more improvement and the subsequent value of that winning form shows him to generously treated off his current mark. Conditions look ideal for Lime Street whilst Ocean's Cove promises more now handicapping and looks best of the rest.
