Forecasts

Dashing Poet (9/4), Elixsoft (3/1), Cheerfilly (4/1), Angel Palanas (6/1), Oud Metha Bridge (7/1), Sir Roderic (11/1), Ghazan (12/1), Regular Income (12/1), Ventura Gold (25/1), Art Echo (25/1)

Verdict

A tough finale. Both Elixsoft (Newcastle) and Angel Palanas (Southwell) are AW specialists seeking to exploit more lenient handicap marks on turf, with the former making considerably more appeal. Regular Income would probably appreciate a drop of rain, albeit couldn't be totally discounted should that not arrive. However, the pair of most interest are the Leicester regular Cheerfilly who should benefit for her recent comeback run at Lingfield (sports blinkers) and the Heather Main-trained DASHING POET. The selection is an in-form mare who is perfectly capable on turf, and will almost certainly appreciate the stiff uphill Leicester finish.
