Forecast

Cosmic Ray (11/8), La Sioux (5/1), Edgar Allan Poe (5/1), Restive (11/2), Spark Of War (9/1), Jackhammer (20/1), Haymarket (25/1), Foxy Lady (25/1), Remember Rocky (33/1)

Verdict

The draw that COSMIC RAY has been handed won’t make it easy for him to lead (appears to be his preferred tactics) but if he does get to the front he could well replicate his Nottingham form (fourth won on Tuesday at Newcastle) around a course that favours front runners off a favourable mark. La Sioux will be a danger though as she has worked her way back down to be near the mark that she last won off. Edgar Allan Poe represents a trainer who does well here and he should go better with a run now tucked away with Foxy Lady another who can get involved returning from a break that often refreshes.
  1. Cosmic Ray
  2. La Sioux
  3. Edgar Allan Poe
