Forecast

Primal Focus (7/4), Sid Hoodie (15/8), Good Little Wife (11/4), Speedy Gonzalez (14/1), Simon The Great (14/1), Fs Lola (16/1), Dancing Grey (33/1), Across The Park (40/1)

Verdict
None of those that have run set what could be called an exacting standard although Sid Hoodie offers the best form via getting close to an odds-on favourite over C&D last time with two of today’s rivals behind. One of those Good Little Wife may have some improvement in her as that was her first start but the debutant PRIMAL FOCUS is preferred. His point-to-point form was nothing special but he comes from a burgeoning yard who have already has winners in this sphere and market support would increase confidence. Most of the others look set to compete for a minor role at best although money for the locally-trained Fs Lola would be interesting.
  1. Primal Focus
  2. Sid Hoodie
  3. Good Little Wife
