Forecast

Highway To Success (11/4), Cardini (3/1), Vidiyni (5/1), Dandys Ocean (7/1), Facethepuckout (8/1), Hammersmith (10/1), Royal Canford (10/1), Biltmore (20/1)

Verdict
HIGHWAY TO SUCCESS got off the mark at the second attempt in taking manner at Galway and in the process showed he acts well with cut in the ground. He looks to be capable of winning off a fair opening handicap mark so gets the nod here. Cardini faces a tough task giving away 8lb plus to these rivals but his form is very solid and he should again go close. Royal Canford is an interesting sort in her first handicap try and shouldn't be overlooked.
