Forecast

Capsy De Mee (3/1), Master Ring (5/1), Dusky Raider (5/1), Mr Fickle (11/2), Sea's Aria (15/2), Cor Wot An Apple (10/1), Serveontime (12/1), Pension Madness (16/1), Mortens Leam (18/1), The Last Melon (25/1), Tom Neary (33/1), Hi There Silver (50/1)

Verdict
A woefully poor contest and it would come as no surprise whatever passes the post in front. Gary Moore landed both divisions of this in 2015 so Mr Fickle has to be considered. Serveontime is the pick of the weights but his best performances have come around Taunton and he has so far failed to reproduce those efforts elsewhere. Sea's Aria is dropped in class and enters calculations as a result, but Dusky Raider has to prove his stamina. Master Ring makes his handicap debut and could find this company more to his liking. CAPSY DE MEE gets the vote in the hope that he returns fresh from a break and returns the horse that promised better than this a year ago.
  1. Capsy De Mee
  2. Sea's Aria
  3. Master Ring
