Forecast

Alph (2/1), Prudhomme (9/2), Highway One O Two (9/2), The Macon Lugnatic (11/2), Molly Ollys Wishes (9/1), Midnight Glance (9/1), Namib Dancer (12/1), Ethandexter (33/1), Extrodinair (33/1), Dylan's Sea Song (50/1), Forest Lord (100/1), Calgary Tiger (100/1)

Verdict
The fact that ALPH was 4/11 favourite on debut spoke volumes as to the obvious regard he is held in at Seven Barrows but he had to settle for second. With time since and a wind-op he can go one better and avenge that costly defeat. The Macon Lugnatic also has a good second on his CV and rates the most obvious threat while newcomers Namib Dancer, Highway One O Two and Midnight Glance all make some appeal so should be watched in the market.
  1. Alph
  2. The Macon Lugnatic
  3. Namib Dancer
