Forecast

Thosedaysaregone (9/4), Seddon (4/1), Ballymoy (5/1), Better Getalong (8/1), Colonial Dreams (10/1), New Quay (10/1), Boite (14/1), Djingle (14/1), Kelpies Myth (16/1), Man Of Plenty (20/1)

Verdict
SEDDON has developed into a smart novice for Tom George bases on his Grade Two third's the last twice and both have hinted that he could be even better when upped in trip so he makes plenty of appeal with this opening handicap mark far from unreasonable. Thosedaysaregone is certainly a big danger having won so impressively when heavily backed at Wetherby as is prolific improver Ballymoy who took his record to five from seven latest.
  1. Seddon
  2. Thosedaysaregone
  3. Ballymoy
