Forecast

Harrogate (5/2), Airglow (6/1), Hawaam (6/1), Our Little Pony (7/1), Makanah (9/1), Machree (9/1), Rumshak (9/1), Feebs (12/1), Consequences (12/1), Dandy's Beano (20/1), Qaaraat (20/1), Bakht Khan (33/1), Areen Faisal (33/1)

Verdict
RUMSHAK bounced back to form when making all at Newcastle and built up an impressive early lead. He won with plenty in hand and off just 4lb higher and with an easier surface back on turf suiting, he should prove very hard to peg back. Harrogate can be involved but needs to break better and while the same could be said of Makanah, his slow starts haven't been a barrier to success and there's likely to be plenty more to come. Airglow is in very good form and any rain would greatly help his chances.
  1. Rumshak
  2. Makanah
  3. Airglow
