Forecast

Never A Word (10/3), Jaxlight (7/2), Naasik (9/2), Ladies Dancing (8/1), Given Name (11/1), The Lincoln Lawyer (12/1), Kahdian (12/1), Sadma (16/1), Fern Owl (20/1), Chance It (20/1), Sweeping Rock (28/1), Polo The Mumm (33/1), Hediddodinthe (33/1), May Mist (50/1)

Verdict
None of these can be recommended with any confidence and the percentage call would be to back Never A Word each-way as his latest run indicated he was back to his best. Nevertheless, he remains winless and a chance is taken on JAXLIGHT. The bumper winner has failed to cut much ice over hurdles, but she clearly has ability. A switch of yards plus a big drop in the weights give weight to the argument that she can show more in a race that will take little winning.
  1. Jaxlight
  2. Never A Word
  3. Sadma
