Forecast

Improving (5/1), Engles Rock (5/1), Syrena (7/1), Cruella Dovil (7/1), Calling Time (7/1), Fancy Footings (8/1), Sunset Nova (12/1), Pepperoni Pete (14/1), Deira Surprise (16/1), Njord (16/1), Silver Service (16/1), Galtee Mist (20/1), Beleaguerment (20/1), Lord Rapscallion (20/1), Facethepuckout (22/1), Lumsden (25/1), Segenhoe (25/1), Evasive Power (33/1)

Verdict
It is worth staying on the right side of the hugely progressive CALLING TIME as she bids for a hat-trick even with another hike in the handicaps. Colin Keane's mount Cruella Dovil is knocking ever louder at the door and looks sure to go close again as does Improving whose second latest suggests he too can get off the mark soon.
