Forecast

Slaying The Dragon (3/1), Head Lad (4/1), Mere Anarchy (6/1), Baratineur (17/2), Maratt (9/1), Kapga De Lily (12/1), Newquay Cards (12/1), Get Wishing (14/1), Minella Voucher (20/1), Owners Day (25/1), Better News (33/1), Auenwirbel (33/1), Karl Marx (33/1), Franz Klammer (33/1), Buckeye Shan (40/1), Wild Eve (50/1), Coopers Square (50/1), Fact Flow (66/1)

Verdict
A competitive if low-grade opener to the card with the handicapper having to have had a bit of a guess at the handicap mark for Kapga De Lily and she could be well weighted for this off 100. Slaying The Dragon makes his first outing for Nigel Hawke and a repeat of his Newton Abbot second would see him go close here with Maratt and Newquay Cards two more interesting sorts at this level. Better News is expected to show more now that she moves into handicaps and a market move would be worth noting. HEAD LAD ran into one in good form at Stratford last time when making a marked improvement in his previous outings and with a top conditional taking the ride he’s given the vote.
