Forecast

Petrucci (7/4), Far Bihoue (3/1), Musical Stardust (7/1), Never A Word (7/1), Glimpse Of Gold (8/1), Raving Bonkers (9/1), Magen's Moon (28/1), Little Folke (28/1), Adrakhan (33/1), Bit Spicy (100/1)

Verdict
The obvious solution to this opening handicap looks to be with the rejuvenated last time out Stratford winner Petrucci who overcame a long absence to land a well-directed gamble last time. Penalised 7lb he could deliver a similar blow but this is a quick return after a long absence and the safer option may be to support MUSICAL STARDUST each-way back over a C&D that suits her off a mark that is still workable. Magen’s Moon hasn’t shown much over hurdles so far but lurks on a dangerous mark while connections could well be expecting more than we have seen so far over hurdles from Raving Bonkers with Richard Johnson booked.
  1. Musical Stardust
  2. Petrucci
  3. Raving Bonkers
