Forecast

High Horse (4/1), Five Helmets (5/1), Luchador (11/2), Leoube (6/1), Finoah (7/1), Ventura Bay (7/1), Solesmes (14/1), Dancing Speed (14/1), Juniors Fantasy (20/1), Triple One (22/1), Bouncin Back (40/1), Tobeeornottobee (66/1)

Verdict
The old adage to stick with top-weights in nurseries may not be as valid as it once was, but HIGH HORSE is not overburdened on what he's achieved to date, and may be up to defying his burden. Ventura Bay and Five Helmets were separated by a whisker at Chester last time, and with that form working out, head the list of possible dangers. Juniors Fantasy makes longshot appeal having had excuses last time.
  1. High Horse
  2. Ventura Bay
  3. Five Helmets
