Forecasts

Urban Light (7/2), Silver Service (7/2), An Aingeal Dubh (7/2), Pulsing Dragon (5/1), Kestrel Prince (6/1), Facethepuckout (7/1), Rinty Maginty (8/1), Andaleep (10/1), Arabic Channel (10/1)

Verdict

PULSING DRAGON was beaten just a short head in his latest race and his opening handicap mark looks entirely reasonable so he gets the nod. Very few of these can boast soft ground form so Urban Light's experience in such conditions could prove vital and he has to enter the equation after a decent second last time out. Kestrel Prince has it to do at the weights but he can't be dismissed with improvement still quite likely given he has only raced twice.
