Betting

Forecast

Skin Deep (5/6), Silk Run (11/4), Northern Beau (11/4), Cosette (20/1), Pac It In (22/1), Fortia (25/1), Angel Moon (40/1), Last Watch (66/1)

Verdict
Alan King's SKIN DEEP is bred to be a good hurdler being a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Yanworth. She won a bumper last time out and with her yard in form should go very well. Richard Johnson won this race last year and partners Silk Run, who may well improve for the step up in trip, while Last Watch should strip fitter than at Southwell last time out and has place prospects. Pac It In is going the right way and is not completely out of it either.
