Forecast

Achill Road Boy (5/4), Wood Pigeon (2/1), Golden Investment (5/2), Arizona Bound (5/1), Apache Pilot (11/2), Solid Strike (11/2), Grimthorpe (40/1)

Verdict
A modest finale in which the newly blinkered Achill Road Boy arrives in the strongest form. However, although his chance is a relatively clear one on paper he's far from the most frequent of winners. Therefore, we can aim for a better priced alternative with the conditions proven Arizona Bound a definite contender if bringing his 'A game' to the table. However, a real shot in the dark is aimed towards the Hexham specialist APACHE PILOT. His handicap mark is easing (now just 1lb above his last winning mark), presenting conditions are favourable and he has held valid excuses in some of his races so far this season. He remains of interest at the projected prices.
  1. Apache Pilot
  2. Achill Road Boy
  3. Arizona Bound
