Betting

Forecast

Storm Melody (3/1), Essaka (9/2), Olaudah (11/2), Pastfact (8/1), Pocket Warrior (10/1), Holdenhurst (10/1), Toolatetodelegate (14/1), Red Tycoon (20/1), Who Told Jo Jo (20/1), Spirit Of Ishy (20/1), Filbert Street (25/1), Spot Lite (25/1), Mrs Todd (25/1), Fantasy Justifier (33/1), Sugar Plum Fairy (33/1), Tally's Song (66/1), Burauq (66/1)

Verdict

A low-grade sprint handicap in which the majority of runners have failed to show consistent form for some time. SUGAR PLUM FAIRY is a speculative choice as she goes well here and ran better than her finishing position suggests over C&D last time out. There are any number of possible alternatives, including Essaka, who won well at Brighton earlier in the week and is very much feared. Who Told Jo Jo, Holdenhurst, Pocket Warrior and Spot Lite are others with claims.
  1. Sugar Plum Fairy
  2. Essaka
  3. Pocket Warrior
