Forecast

Ulis De Vassy (4/1), Militarian (6/1), Fergal Mael Duin (6/1), Free Range (13/2), Dartford Warbler (7/1), The Dawn Man (7/1), Cobajayisland (15/2), Morning Reggie (9/1), Little Windmill (25/1)

Verdict
An opener in which caution is advised given that virtually all the field has one or more questions to answer. That includes LITTLE WINDMILL, though Neil King's gelding tends to put in one good run followed by a below par effort. He is back on a winning mark today and with no problem in terms of conditions or trip, he is suggested in the hope that this is a going day. Morning Reggie is also nicely treated if able to spark a revival and the same goes for Fergal Mael Duln, while Free Range represents a stable who's runners are still in decent nick and should be thereabouts.
  1. Little Windmill
  2. Free Range
  3. Morning Reggie
