Forecast

Mount Wellington (7/2), Independence Day (7/2), Santafiora (5/1), Zapper Cass (9/1), Fast Track (10/1), Big Time Maybe (12/1), Van Gerwen (14/1), Ty Rock Brandy (14/1), Our Man In Havana (18/1), Letmestopyouthere (20/1), Tavener (20/1), Turanga Leela (25/1), Rock Warbler (33/1)

Verdict
A devilishly difficult looking handicap with the only certainty being an abundance of early pace. Both Santafiora and Turanga Leela have shown recent productive Wolverhampton form, whilst the Irish-raider Ty Rock Brandy is 3-3 at this track (all over 5f) for former trainer Lee Smyth. Independence Day should prove capable of winning a race from his current mark (67) although that could come over the minimum trip, so we'll chance the more versatile OUR MAN IN HAVANA in hope of a return to form and reward at potentially tasty odds.
  1. Our Man In Havana
  2. Independence Day
  3. Santafiora
