Forecast

The Hollow Ginge (5/2), Sharp Response (5/2), Rivabodiva (10/3), Tickenwolf (7/2), Captain Mowbray (8/1), Arctic Vodka (8/1), David John (14/1)

Verdict
No standout contender, so a very difficult race to solve. A sustained spell of rain prior to racing would certainly suit the mare Rivabodiva who ploughed her way through the sodden Newcastle turf in April when the beneficiary of a tactically astute ride by Thomas Willmott. Tickenwolf commonly thrives at Hexham (121411), but hasn't raced over hurdles for well over two years now, whilst the topweight Sharp Response competes from a career high mark. Therefore, we'll chance the improving ARCTIC VODKA, and simply hope that his stamina reserves last out on his first ever start over 3m.
  1. Arctic Vodka
  2. Rivabodiva
  3. Sharp Response
