Betting

Forecast

Don Lami (5/2), Randy Pike (7/2), Skywards Reward (11/2), Cape Hideaway (6/1), Ryedale Racer (15/2), Absolutely Dylan (12/1), Rhymers Stone (14/1), Only Orsenfoolsies (20/1), Pistol (33/1), Ten Trees (50/1), Top Cat Henry (80/1)

Verdict
Plenty of runners and fairly competitive with recent 2m1f Carlisle scorer Skywards Reward bidding for a hat-trick for Middleham handler Micky Hammond; also saddles the top-weighted Only Orsenfoolsies. However, the opposition is stronger today with the likes of Ryedale Racer arriving on the back of an improved effort at Kelso in February, the handicap debutante Don Lami potentially having more too offer, and the dual purpose performer Cape Hideaway a winner on the Flat at Doncaster last month. In terms of a possible solution, the Tim Easterby trained RANDY PIKE remains progressive, and he lost little in defeat to Grand Morning at Newcastle recently.
  1. Randy Pike
  2. Ryedale Racer
  3. Don Lami
