Forecast

Desert Diamond (6/4), Akvavera (7/4), Brexitmeansbrexit (7/1), I Was Only Joking (12/1), Club Tropicana (14/1), Shazzab (16/1)

Verdict

If she continues to progress there's no reason why DESERT DIAMOND can't win on handicap debut, having taken a novice event at Wolverhampton last time in the style of a horse who should improve for this step up in trip. The return to turf is unlikely to be an issue, and she looks the one to be with once again. Club Tropicana also looks on a fair mark based on what she's achieved in handicap company, while Akvavera can build on her handicap debut at Epsom last time.
  1. Desert Diamond
  2. Club Tropicana
  3. Akvavera
