Forecasts

Nikki Steel (4/7), Salix (6/1), Major Davis (8/1), Stonecoldsoba (17/2), Sue Be It (14/1), Clock On Tom (33/1)

Verdict

Salix will be popular here as he's unexposed and looks to be getting the hang of things, but he really will need to settle better or he'll find the final punishing climb here at Towcester a step too far. Major Davis has found the obstacles a stumbling block so far but a clear round may well see him on the premises, Stonecoldsoba too could tidy his jumping up (despite winning last time) so a chance is taken that NIKKI STEEL will find this track to his liking. He looks well enough handicapped if so.
  1. Nikki Steel
