Forecasts

Petite Ganache (11/4), Herecomesnelson (7/2), Perseid (7/2), Call The Cops (6/1), Mah Mate Bob (10/1), Silk Or Scarlet (12/1), Pinspot (16/1), Cully Mac (16/1), Dark And Dangerous (20/1), Cudgel (25/1), Millrose Bell (40/1), Schlipf (50/1)

Verdict

No standout contender although plenty of the runners can probably be safely dismissed. Assuming that Petite Ganache is fit and ready to do himself justice off a 157 day absence he should be there or thereabouts in this company, whilst the upped in trip Pinspot should be monitored in the market exchanges on his handicap debut. However, a speculative shout is for the unexposed top-weight SILK OR SCARLET who ran well for a long way on his seasonal reappearance at Kelso, and remains feasibly handicapped for Nick Alexander with the Fife-based trainers string now in altogether better overall form.
  1. Silk Or Scarlet
  2. Mah Mate Bob
  3. Petite Ganache
