Forecasts

Iwilldoit (11/8), Same Circus (11/4), Rainy City (3/1), General Allenby (9/2), Oregon Gold (6/1), Valence D'Aumont (14/1), Will O'The West (25/1)

Verdict

The form that Same Circus has shown around here over both sets of obstacles shows that she enjoys this course and she’s likely to be hard to keep out of the frame once more. Rainy City is another from the McCain yard that has a decent chance although he looks one who would prefer something finished in front of him most of the time. IWILLDOIT won well on his handicap debut and connections were rather forced into running him under a penalty just a few days later. That quick turnaround proved too much but given a break he can still be competitive despite a 10lb higher mark. Oregon Gold is another who needs to bounce back to his previous form and would be dangerous if allowed a soft lead.
