Forecast

Royal Prospect (9/4), Primo's Comet (10/3), Fendale (5/1), Foxy Forever (5/1), Bowson Fred (9/1), Saaheq (12/1), Jan Van Hoof (22/1), Dynamo Walt (33/1)

Verdict
An interesting 5f sprint with a strong back-catalogue of C&D form for interrogation. Dynamo Walt fought off Fendale when winning here on Good Friday and there's precious little between that pair at today's broadly similar weights. Royal Prospect is lightly-raced and open to further improvement (from a fair handicap mark) with the booking of Paul Mulrennan catching the eye, although he could be found wanting over this 5f trip. Therefore, we'll opt to keep things simple and chance the front-runner BOWSON FRED. He hasn't won in ages but is extremely well handicapped on a couple of pieces of more distant C&D form (June 2016 & Nov 2017) and is fancied to make all.
  1. Bowson Fred
  2. Foxy Forever
  3. Fendale
