Forecast

Promote (5/2), Kickham Street (7/2), Shallow Hal (5/1), Quickly Does It (5/1), Nubough (15/2), Hot Contest (12/1), Toro Dorado (20/1), Rich Approach (33/1), Here's Rocco (33/1), The Game Is On (40/1), Sister of The Sign (40/1), Grimsdyke (50/1), Ganton Eagle (66/1), Macs Blessings (100/1)

Verdict
Not the kind of race for offering strong advice, and adopting more of a watching brief than anything else looks to be the safest way forward. Of the newcomers NUBOUGH and Promote are interesting, with the former (and selection) hailing from a decent family line and representing a trainer with a 27% strike-rate (8-30) at the track. Quickly Does It out-shone all reasonable market expectations on soft ground at Carlisle last month, and bids to show that was no fluke on a vastly different racing surface, whilst at a likely bigger price the slowly improving Shallow Hal could sneak a place at this more suitable galloping track.
  1. Nubough
  2. Promote
  3. Shallow Hal
