Forecast

Migration (9/4), Country (7/2), Solid Stone (4/1), Mordin (11/2), Hyanna (10/1), Ventura Knight (10/1), Mr Top Hat (20/1), Mutaabeq (20/1), My Boy Sepoy (33/1)

Verdict

The well-regarded COUNTRY is the preference to rattle up a four-timer and continue his rapid progression up the handicap ladder. The manner of his Redcar victory suggests he could well be a group-race performer down the line and with that form looking strong, the three-year-old could be dangerously poised by the handicapper. Solid Stone has bounced back to form after some disappointing efforts and the step back up to 1m2f should bring out the best of him on pedigree while Migration and Mordin need to find a bit on ratings to win, but the latter is helped by a good claimer taking 7lb off of his back.
