Forecast

Kinch (4/1), Njord (9/2), Carefully (6/1), Pepperoni Pete (7/1), Fancy Footings (8/1), Closer Now (9/1), Born In The U S A (10/1), Will Be King (12/1), Jungle Jungle (14/1), Afric (14/1), Queen Guanhumara (14/1), Burning Lake (14/1), Pleasurable (14/1), Reeking Havoc (20/1), Gold Jasmine (20/1), Luminent (20/1), Red Bloodedcruiser (20/1), Sestriere (25/1), Nakakande (33/1)

Verdict
A few of these are potentially well-handicapped and open to progress. Sestriere, Kinch, Fancy Footings and Afric are all capable of stepping up on previous efforts, whilst Queen Guanhumara makes her handicap debut off an attractive weight if this proves to be her right trip having been campaigned over further. Will Be King has dropped a long way from his initial mark and connections would have been expecting CAREFULLY to be aiming a lot higher than this given her pedigree. However, she has improved with each run and has got in here on a mark of just 64. That leaves her with little further progress to make in order to take a hand and she is selected to belatedly enhance her broodmare value.
  1. Carefully
