Forecast

Strawberry Jack (3/1), Perfecimperfection (4/1), George Mallory (9/2), Wall Of Sapphire (11/2), Ventura Bay (8/1), Creek Island (10/1), Curfewed (10/1), Joe The Beau (11/1), Play It By Ear (20/1), Jean Merci (20/1), Mecca's Gift (25/1), Chains Of Love (28/1), Northern Lyte (28/1), Dancing Speed (33/1), Highwaygrey (66/1), Al Mortajaz (66/1)

Verdict
Wall Of Sapphire has returned in good shape with a win at Windsor but faces a tougher test on these revised terms. Strawberry Jack looks capable of opening his account soon while handicaps may see better from the likes of Play It By Ear, Joe The Beau and Creek Island but the one to side with could be CURFEWED. He made the frame over a mile at Pontefract recently and has been eased a handy 3lb here. If there's a decent pace on, he should arrive with a challenge late on.
  1. Curfewed
  2. Creek Island
  3. Wall Of Sapphire
