Forecast

In From The Cold (7/2), For The Trees (5/1), The Peckhampouncer (11/2), Chrysalism (6/1), Simply True (7/1), Glow Worm (8/1), Phase After Phase (9/1), Not Now Zeb (11/1), Captain Corcoran (12/1)

Verdict
THEPECKHAMPOUNCER has to carry the weight but he's in form, improving and handles soft ground, so has a lot going for him here. He can win again, with this step up in trip not likely to pose him too many problems. For The Trees does have the question of ground to answer if it is on the slow side, but she's going the right way. Not Now Zeb and Phase After Phase are both worth consideration.
  1. The Peckhampouncer
  2. For The Trees
  3. Phase After Phase
