Forecasts

Addis Ababa (5/2), Humble Gratitude (3/1), Ayutthaya (7/2), Falmouth Light (11/2), No I'm Easy (6/1), Rhosneigr (8/1), Etefaaq (16/1), Snooker Jim (25/1)

Verdict

Several of these appear to want some significant rain to give them their best chance. If that arrives, then Falmouth Light, Ayutthaya and Rhosneigr should all be capable of having a say. However, it is currently faster than that and NO I'M EASY makes a fair bit of appeal with headgear now on and having had a run after being gelded. He is not yet exposed and could go very well. Snooker Jim could improve and take a hand, while Addis Ababa is another to consider.
