Forecast

Fard (5/2), Boudica Bay (5/2), Me Before You (3/1), Stewardess (4/1), Haverland (5/1), Biddy Brady (7/1), Praxedis (7/1), Laubali (7/1), Strategic (8/1)

Verdict
Having gotten off the mark last time out STEWARDESS could be able to double up in a relatively ordinary handicap. Me Before You seems to have adapted to a higher mark now and has suggested another win might not be far away the last twice. Boudica Bay was behind the selection at Ripon and has run well since so she should get closer here with a slight pull at the weights.
  1. Stewardess
  2. Me Before You
  3. Boudica Bay
