Forecast

Follow The Swallow (4/1), Inchcolm (6/1), Apache Pilot (6/1), Chanceiton (8/1), Chicago Outfit (17/2), My Escapade (9/1), For Yes (11/1), Gibbstown (14/1), Super Lunar (16/1), Dartford Warbler (20/1), Shine Away (20/1), Tommy O'dwyer (25/1), Emkae (25/1), Solway Trigger (33/1), Captain Sharpe (50/1), Blue Cove (100/1)

Verdict
A big field, but the bulk of those at the foot of the weights could have a lap start and still not be competitive. The likes of Apache Pilot, Chicago Outfit and Gibbstown have all been (and continue to be) creditable performers over C&D and should never be dismissed lightly. However in an open race we'll look elsewhere and beyond the obvious. Follow The Swallow is of interest after a better effort latest, but the nod goes to the Sue Smith-trained SHINE AWAY who looks to be fairly treated off a mark of 94.
  1. Shine Away
  2. Apache Pilot
  3. Follow The Swallow
