Forecast

Gold Chain (9/4), Diggin Deep (3/1), Herecomesnelson (11/2), Airdrigh (12/1), Moores Novelty (12/1), Samtu (14/1), Witness (14/1), Glamorous Gold (18/1), Love At Dawn (20/1), Millrose Bell (40/1), Casimir Du Clos (50/1)

Verdict
This looks a little stronger than the first division with DIGGIN DEEP looking to have a good chance of building on his Musselburgh victory for his new stable despite the 10pb rise in the weights. Samtu who was 3rd in that race should finish closer this time but another place may well be the best that he can hope for. Quite a few of the others will need to build on what they showed last time and have been inconsistent in the past although Herecomesnelson is now off a mark that he ought to be able to cope with after wind surgery and Love At Dawn isn’t written off back at the scene of her best performance.
  1. Diggin Deep
