Forecast

Junior Rip (15/8), Social Network (4/1), Corinthian Girl (5/1), The Dancing Poet (8/1), Better Than Ever (8/1), Spirit Of Angel (10/1), Canasta (12/1), Love Your Work (16/1), Dreamboat Dave (16/1)

Verdict
CANASTA should appreciate this step up in trip and allow her to get off the mark at the sixth time of asking after seemingly improving slowly for each run. The filly ran a fair race in defeat last time at Wolverhampton in July and her trainer looks to have found a nice opportunity for her to get off the mark. Corinthian Girl is another who will enjoy this slightly stiffer test of stamina and there was much to like about her effort last time at Kempton despite a slow start. Junior Rip is entitled to be in the reckoning following his course and distance win last time out. He has a rise in the weights to contend with and the suspicion that the form of that victory was not too strong.
  1. Canasta
  2. Corinthian Girl
  3. Dreamboat Dave
