Forecast

John Betjeman (3/1), Pink Iceburg (7/2), Mayfair Madame (5/1), Whataguy (11/2), Molly Blake (6/1), Swan Street (12/1), Country Rose (20/1), Tomahawk Ridge (20/1), Kg Passion (25/1), Wye Bother (33/1), Merarani (33/1), Very Stable Genius (50/1), Rocky Park (66/1)

Verdict

Whataguy provided his trainer with a first juvenile runner and showed plenty of dash before conditions took their toll. He looks set to go close but preference is for JOHN BETJEMAN who showed speed on debut in what was a stronger race than this before failing to handle the bend at Kempton. Mayfair Madame was placed in a race which has not worked out very well and a bigger threat may come from Swan Street who looked green on debut but showed some ability.
  1. John Betjeman
  2. Whataguy
  3. Swan Street
