Verdict

STAR OF SOUTHWOLD is well-in on official ratings after an excellent second at Carlisle last time out and while he's sure to face some pace pressure and may not get it all his own way up front, he's the one that looks to be ahead of the handicapper. Last year's winner of this race, Waarif, has to be respected again and he should find this easier than the race at York he contested last time out. Expect Wind In My Sails to be doing all his best work in the finish and he could be the one that benefits if they go too quick on the front end.
  1. Star Of Southwold
  2. Wind In My Sails
  3. Waarif
