Forecast

Beringer (9/2), Mutafani (5/1), Hortzadar (7/1), Ledham (7/1), Love Dreams (8/1), What's The Story (9/1), Plutonian (10/1), Bless Him (12/1), Escobar (12/1), Just Hiss (12/1), Hayadh (14/1), Ulshaw Bridge (16/1), Firmament (20/1), Waarif (20/1), Commander Han (20/1), Donncha (25/1), Mikmak (33/1), Tricorn (66/1)

Verdict
A case could be made for half of this field but a chance is taken on ULSHAW BRIDGE in the hope he's ready first time up this season. He was running consistently well towards the back end of last year and seems to appreciate a straight mile on fast ground. Hayadh and Commander Han are both worth considering after a close dual in a decent race at Thirsk last time while Firmament is too well-handicapped to ignore.
  1. Ulshaw Bridge
  2. Hayadh
  3. Firmament
