Forecast

Scoir Mear (4/1), Nellie Pledge (9/2), Ask Nile (6/1), Peculiar Genius (6/1), Velocity Boy (13/2), Roaring Bull (7/1), Bilbo Bagins (10/1), Close Shave (12/1), Runyon Rattler (16/1), Spancil Hill (16/1), Marakoush (33/1)

Verdict
Paul Nolan has been in fine form lately and consistent PECULIAR GENIUS could be the latest to benefit from the stable's hot streak in this competitive looking race. Bilbo Bagins ran well in his only start of the season so far and a repeat of that effort would put him firmly in the picture. Novice Nellie Pledge fell last time out but had impressed previously and is another well worth considering.
