Forecasts

Zoltan Varga (10/3), Navajo War Dance (4/1), Royal Hall (9/2), Soulsaver (11/2), Bulletproof (6/1), Sweeping Rock (8/1), Spirit Of Rome (11/1), Mr Fickle (16/1), Cor Wot An Apple (20/1), Cappielow Park (25/1), Huntress (25/1), Jasani (40/1), Daleelak (66/1)

Verdict

ZOLTAN VARGA has been waiting for an opportunity to race on better ground over a shorter trip on a tight circuit. The handicapper has given him a chance and he is taken to be another winner for Bryony Frost. Sweeping Rock is consistent at this level and the booking of Harry Cobden seems significant, whilst Royal Hall and Navajo War Dance have place claims.
  1. Zoltan Varga
  2. Sweeping Rock
  3. Navajo War Dance
