Forecast

Warning Fire (3/1), Spirit Of May (9/2), Chitra (5/1), Cracking Speed (6/1), Under Curfew (15/2), Cavalry Park (10/1), Drumnadrochit (12/1), Miss Elsa (14/1), Atty's Edge (18/1), Penarth Pier (25/1), Song of The Isles (33/1), Boorowa (40/1), Clubora (40/1)

Verdict
Having been gelded over the winter it might be a good time to side with DRUMNADROCHIT, who ran his best race last year over C&D under forcing tactics. With blinkers applied today, Callum Shepherd's mount could have more to offer on his return as he starts in handicaps from a modest mark. Cracking Speed was too keen on reappearance at Windsor but can do better with that run behind while Chelmsford scorer Spirit Of May is also respected despite a 6lb increase. Warning Fire failed to justify favouritism at Wetherby but is now 2lb better off in a weaker contest.
  1. Drumnadrochit
  2. Spirit Of May
  3. Warning Fire
