Forecast

Phoebus Lescribaa (3/1), Wazowski (4/1), Dovils Date (9/2), Land League (9/2), The Crafty Touch (9/2), Ballycrystal Court (13/2), Oxford Blu (11/1), Grand Enterprise (14/1), Foxtrot Juliet (16/1), Beautiful Ben (20/1), Murray Mount (33/1)

Verdict
It was no surprise to see Dovils Date justify favouritism at Uttoxeter last time as he was well handicapped on his old form and he still appeals off and 11lb higher mark having won over C&D in the past off a mark of 115. Both Phoebus Lescribaa and Land League have elements in their form that would give them chances although equally neither are rock solid with the former looking iffy in a finish last time and the latter may struggle at this trip. This would seem to be the time that the go button is about to be pushed on THE CRAFTY TOUCH making her handicap debut up in trip having shown winning form in point-to-points; Jonjo O’Neill Jr claiming 3lb is an added bonus.
  1. The Crafty Touch
  2. Dovils Date
  3. Phoebus Lescribaa
