Forecast

Muscika (3/1), Big Les (7/2), Shepherd's Purse (4/1), My Name Is Rio (13/2), Golden Steps (7/1), Hee Haw (8/1), Dark Defender (10/1), Related (16/1), Imagine If (16/1), Athollblair Boy (20/1), Cosmic Chatter (25/1), Van Gerwen (25/1), Gowanbuster (40/1)

Verdict
SHEPHERD'S PURSE has been contesting some decent races of late and is entitled to go well if he gets the gaps at the right time. Muscika won this race 12 months ago and is running back into form at the right time so could be a danger to all, and recent winner Big Les is also entitled to be in the thick of the action despite his penalty. Top weight Golden Steps could be thrown in on the best of his old form, while Dark Defender and Hee Haw are not without hope either.
  1. Shepherd's Purse
  2. Golden Steps
  3. Muscika
