Forecast

Red Mist (3/1), Knighted (5/1), Kripke (11/2), Gurkha Friend (11/2), Just Hiss (8/1), Give It Some Teddy (9/1), Fennaan (10/1), Anythingtoday (12/1), Fayez (14/1), Carry On Deryck (66/1)

Verdict
GURKHA FRIEND loves it at this venue and the gelding gives the impression he may still have another handicap in him off this sort of mark. Tim Easterby's pair make some appeal and Give It Some Teddy may do better than his effort on soft last time out at Nottingham. Kripke is only up 4lb for his latest success and he isn't one to rule out.
  1. Gurkha Friend
  2. Give It Some Teddy
  3. Kripke
