Forecast

Iskabeg Lane (11/4), Chase The Wind (3/1), Astracad (4/1), Gars Bar Dine (13/2), Newberry New (8/1), Forever Dylan (10/1), Royal Salute (16/1), Whiskey Chaser (20/1), Bertielicious (200/1)

Verdict
Difficult to pin-point the likeliest winner, although it certainly won't be the 42-race maiden Bertielicious who competes from a whopping 20lb out of the handicap. Iskabeg Lane needs including on the short-list in a race which lacks any real strength in-depth, and the same can be said about the Newcastle regular Whiskey Chaser. However, for small stakes the preferred option is the Joanne Foster-trained CHASE THE WIND. Although ultimately no match for the Christian Williams-trained Sideways (has run respectably in a Class 3 handicap since) at Sedgefield in January, he finished best of the rest and that was his strongest form since scoring at Wetherby in May 2016.
