Forecast

Liva (4/1), Pepper Street (11/2), Victory Chime (6/1), Cheeky Rascal (8/1), Pippin (8/1), Groveman (10/1), Rustang (10/1), Banksy's Art (16/1), Beringer (16/1), Goodwood Showman (16/1), Jack Regan (25/1), The Throstles (25/1), Vice Marshal (25/1), Seinesational (33/1), Yamuna River (50/1), Powerful Society (66/1), King Athelstan (66/1)

Verdict
At the top of the handicap, cases can be made for Beringer, Rustang and Groveman, but the one who catches the eye further down the weights is PEPPER STREET, who shaped well on her handicap debut at Nottingham despite not getting the clearest of runs. She can do better off the same handicap mark and is the choice in a wide-open contest. Others to consider are Victory Chime, Jack Regan, Pippin, Goodwood Showman and Banksy's Art.
  1. Pepper Street
  2. Groveman
  3. Jack Regan
