Forecasts

Trouble And Strife (4/5), Cray (5/2), Impulsive American (4/1), Sugarloaf Mountain (13/2), Mambo Dancer (16/1), Zakatal (18/1), Regarde Moi (66/1)

Verdict

A compact field of six, but not necessarily the easiest of races to solve. The returning Mambo Dancer and the emphatic Pontefract winner Cray are likely pace angles, with the latter far more convincing. The veteran Zakatal and Sugarloaf Mountain are previous C&D winners, whilst the selection TROUBLE AND STRIFE is a newcomer to Gosforth Park. She needs to produce a career best effort, but it's plausible that a fast pace will help her settle and she is open to further improvement over this 2m trip. Although 0-2 on the AW, those were early career efforts and there's plenty of optimism that she'll handle this Tapeta surface (related to Rock Warbler).
