Forecast

Gunmetal (3/1), Ice Age (6/1), Rattling Jewel (7/1), Intisaab (8/1), Full Moon (8/1), Ardhoomey (12/1), Hello Brigette (14/1), Fit For Function (14/1), St Brelades Bay (16/1), Master Speaker (16/1), Atlas (16/1), Shepherd's Purse (20/1), Kindly (20/1), Geological (20/1), Sors (25/1), True Blue Moon (25/1), Blairmayne (33/1)

Verdict
It might be worth taking a chance on SHEPHERD'S PURSE in first-time headgear after some promising races in defeat of late. Ice Age won a valuable handicap over course and distance last year and has claims again but Gunmetal may be the main danger in his hat-trick bid.
  1. Shepherd's Purse
  2. Gunmetal
  3. Ice Age
