Forecast

Laith Alareen (3/1), Eeh Bah Gum (5/1), Harrogate (11/2), Billy Dylan (11/2), Cameo Star (13/2), Mutabaahy (13/2), Airglow (7/1), Daffy Jane (8/1), Gold Stone (8/1), Machree (9/1), Palmer (20/1)

Verdict
LAITH ALAREEN is in superb form and looked as though there would still be more to come when completing his hat-trick last time, so the suggestion is to stick with him again. Eeh Bah Gum can't be ruled out, but needs to raise his game a little too, and any significant rain would be a concern. Daffy Jane could be a bigger danger, while Billy Dylan, Airglow and Gold Stone are others considered.
  1. Laith Alareen
  2. Daffy Jane
  3. Billy Dylan
