Forecasts

Special Mission (9/4), Sauchiehall Street (3/1), My Brother Mike (7/1), Exclusive Waters (8/1), Nadine (10/1), Blue Havana (10/1), French Resistance (12/1), Widnes (20/1), New Abbey Angel (25/1), Kirtling (33/1), Wise Coco (100/1)

Verdict

Another low grade contest, but plenty of course form with which to work. Exclusive Waters is best suited to 1m2f at this track, but does stay further and should have a positive role to play despite a 4lb higher mark, whilst Special Mission looks the type to benefit from having Luke Morris back in the saddle. French Resistance is improving, but has stamina to prove on his AW debut, so a real chance is taken on the long time absent KIRTLING. He was dual C&D winner in 2016, remains feasibly handicapped, and hails from a stable able to get horses fit and ready (access to an equine pool) to do themselves justice off a break.
