Forecast

Braes Of Lochalsh (3/1), Uptown Funk (4/1), Hediddodinthe (9/2), Alphabetical Order (6/1), Question Of Faith (8/1), Archibelle (17/2), Dew Pond (10/1), In Focus (25/1), Jan Smuts (40/1)

Verdict
UPTOWN FUNK can register a first success on turf in what looks a competitive handicap. The selection should appreciate the return of cheekpieces and can see off Braes Of Lochalsh who finished a good third here last time out and has run well over C&D in the past. Alphabetical Order carries top weight here but ran well over hurdles last time out and can claim third on his return to the Flat.
  1. Uptown Funk
  2. Braes Of Lochalsh
  3. Alphabetical Order
