Forecast

Colour Contrast (2/1), Diamond Avalanche (9/2), Quiet Moment (6/1), Prancing Oscar (7/1), Natajack (7/1), Falcon's Fire (8/1), New Abbey Angel (10/1), Stardrifter (16/1), Diamond Runner (18/1), Trulove (50/1)

Verdict
A weak race, which gives Colour Contrast every chance of shedding the maiden tag at the 18th attempt at a track which he clearly handles. However, he can be a touch weak at the finish, so at his projected odds we'll seek something to mow him down. Natajack doesn't fit the profile of a finisher but merits consideration after an improved effort in blinkers at Ayr last week, but with stamina assured and a course winner over further in the past, we'll aim the shekels at FALCON'S FIRE and hope he's back to something like his best form with the Keith Dalgleish trained horses overall gradually back on an upward curve.
  1. Falcon's Fire
  2. Colour Contrast
  3. Natajack
