Forecast

Langholm (9/4), Melgate Majeure (5/2), Go Fox (4/1), Dutch Coed (9/2), Placebo Effect (6/1), Fantastic Ms Fox (7/1), Briardale (8/1), Spirit Of Lund (10/1), Lucy's Law (12/1), Showboating (28/1)

Verdict
MELGATE MAJEURE was all the rage in the market when making it a perfect 3 from 3 on Tapeta at Newcastle last week and escapes a penalty for that success (apprentices' handicap). He returns to Beverley bidding to follow up after previously catching the eye in defeat (fourth) to the reopposing Langholm. The Declan Carroll-trained three-year-old has cut out all of the hard yards in twice scoring over C&D (unbeaten) in recent months. Of the remainder, Dutch Coed clearly also appreciates the Westwood and merits a degree of respect, while the top-weight Briardale is more than capable of disposing of these opponents when fully on song.
  1. Melgate Majeure
  2. Dutch Coed
  3. Langholm
