Forecast

Daydream Aulmes (13/2), Trixster (15/2), Worthy Farm (8/1), Modern Warfair (8/1), Lygon Rock (10/1), Another Emotion (10/1), Exitas (10/1), The Way You Dance (10/1), Potters Hedger (12/1), Looks Like Power (12/1), Jully Les Buxy (12/1), Billingsley (12/1), Irish Prince (16/1), Faithful Mount (16/1), Jeannot De Nonant (25/1), Landin (33/1)

Verdict
DAYRDEAM AULMES goes in search of the four-timer here and it is hoped that he finds enough improvement for the step up to 3m to offset another handicap rise. Trixster is interesting on handicap debut given his fine recent form. Modern Warfair is another worth considering after he won his first handicap last time out at Doncaster.
  1. Daydream Aulmes
  2. Trixster
  3. Modern Warfair
