Forecasts

Canford Thompson (11/4), Frightened Rabbit (3/1), Richard Strauss (4/1), Fiercly Forgie (13/2), Snowed In (9/1), Mighty Whitey (14/1), Echo Express (14/1), Cool Artist (20/1), Super Sid (20/1), Clayton Hall (50/1), Rajapur (50/1)

Verdict

Another fairly awkward puzzle to sort out with Frightened Rabbit looking to capitalise again on his good recent form although he does have to prove himself around here but could be dangerous if gaining a soft lead. Both Richard Strauss and Echo Express would have to be given a chance on their best form along with Snowed In for whom Brian Hughes may be a significant booking although Barbara Butterworth’s charge has never been at his best away from Catterick. CANFORD THOMPSON isn’t exactly a serial winner but he’s better than his fourth here on Saturday which came in a more testing grade than this and with a good 7lb conditional taking over from an amateur he’s given a chance to atone.
  1. Canford Thompson
  2. Frightened Rabbit
  3. Richard Strauss
