Forecast

Transpennine Star (2/1), Pink Gin (3/1), After Aspen (7/2), I'm In Charge (5/1), Stage Summit (5/1), Volcanic (11/2), Bandon Roc (13/2), Kayla (14/1)

Verdict
This is a trappy affair but a chance is given to the relatively unexposed TRANSPENNINE STAR who has taken fairly well to hurdles and showed enough last time out to suggest a race such as this is within his range. There are plenty of dangers, including top weight Stage Summit, Volcanic, and veteran I'm In Charge in what should be a decent race.
  1. Transpennine Star
  2. Volcanic
  3. Stage Summit
