Forecast

Brutalab (5/4), Into The Zone (11/4), Gylo (3/1), Burnage Boy (9/2), Uh Oh Chongo (8/1), The Rutland Rebel (10/1), Fading Icon (40/1)

Verdict

A middle-distance maiden handicap to kick proceedings off. He had a rare off day last time, but given the consistency of his profile overall, Brutalab should be afforded another chance after making the frame on all four of his starts in handicaps prior to that disappointment. We can expect significant improvement from the lightly raced handicap debutante Into The Zone as he makes the transition to this sphere. However, the solid option looks to be UH OH CHONGO. The selection steps up in trip on his turf debut but posted a very encouraging effort on just his second handicap start when last seen, and with the possibility of more to come, he could be very difficult to beat.
  1. Uh Oh Chongo
  2. Into The Zone
  3. Brutalab
