Betting

Forecast

Catch My Breath (6/4), Osmosis (11/4), Ifton (4/1), Jazz Hands (7/1), Twentysixthstreet (8/1), Treasured Company (12/1), Princess Florence (20/1), Bannockburn (25/1), Archies Lad (28/1), Geography Teacher (33/1)

Verdict

An unappealing low-grade three-year-old handicap. The reliable Ifton was an eye-catching second at Yarmouth, finishing in front of a couple of today's rivals and theoretically this longer trip should suit. Shock Hamilton scorer Twentysixthstreet remains low-mileage for the Irish handler Andrew Hughes, but the tentative selection is the Jason Ward-trained OSMOSIS. Dropping back from 1m2f appeared to suit this filly at Beverley and that form has a degree of substance with both the winner (One To Go) and the third (Northern Lyte) filling the first two places back on the Westwood last weekend.
  1. Osmosis
  2. Ifton
  3. Catch My Breath
