Forecast

Mr Nice Guy (7/2), Bug Boy (4/1), Twenty Years On (5/1), Ocean Reach (5/1), Magic Act (7/1), Four Mile Bridge (8/1), Keith (9/1), Bonneville (11/1)

Verdict

A modest enough finale with MR NICE GUY likely to enjoys this extra 2f and more galloping track than the 1m2f test at Bath provided him with last time. Compared to quite a few in this he’s still unexposed and features off a far from onerous mark. Ocean Reach is operating off a basement mark but there’s a chance she’s a little better than that judged on some of her form, third over C&D last time another solid performance is in the offing. Bug Boy isn’t discounted, a return to his winning form would be good enough while Magic Act is expected to show more now, he goes into handicaps; the market may give a clue on his expectations.
  1. Mr Nice Guy
  2. Ocean Reach
  3. Bug Boy
