Forecast

Breaking Records (5/2), Last Page (7/2), Equitant (4/1), Dragon Moon (4/1), Choice Encounter (6/1), Lord Of The Glen (10/1), Bahuta Acha (12/1), Becker (12/1), May Symphonic (16/1)

Verdict
A tight handicap where all the runners hold realistic expectations but perhaps the ground holds the key. There's so much to like about the run of LORD OF THE GLEN at York and it's likely that there will likely be more to come at this trip providing he gets fast ground. Likewise Becker has more to offer on this type of surface and is shaping as though he'll improve again soon. Breaking Records didn't handle heavy ground and while he's been better on good ground it's worth taking a chance that this will suit even more. Last Page could easily bounce back from his last start and rates a danger.
  1. Lord Of The Glen
  2. Becker
  3. Breaking Records
