Forecasts

Insane Bolt (10/3), Outside Inside (5/1), Sharp Focus (5/1), Takeachancejimmy (6/1), Spiorad Saoirse (7/1), Red Striker (8/1), Charcor (10/1), High Altitude (11/1), Mr Ormsby (12/1), Treble Cone (14/1)

Verdict

This is a decent-looking handicap, with the progressive Sharp Focus considered as he returns to the C&D over which he broke his maiden duck at last month. He was only sixth in a competitive affair at Galway, but had excuses regarding the trip. In a similar vein of form at present is Takeachancejimmy, who made it a hat-trick of seconds when a half-length runner-up at Sligo a couple of weeks ago, and also holds a few of today's rivals on previous encounters with them. The one to be with though, is INSANE BOLT who has been on the go since March but is in the form of his life and was desperately unlucky when beaten a short-head in a photo-finish at Galway most recently.
  1. Insane Bolt
  2. Sharp Focus
  3. Takeachancejimmy
