Forecast

Spring Run (9/2), Ignatius (11/2), Mr Nice Guy (11/2), Banta Bay (15/2), Highway Robbery (8/1), Lady Elysia (10/1), Beechwood James (12/1), Hatsaway (14/1), Seventii (14/1), Greenview Paradise (14/1), Affair (20/1), Brass (25/1), Zaydanides (25/1), Montys Angel (50/1)

Verdict
MR NICE GUY was staying on really strongly last time over 1m4f so this step up in distance should help his chances of recording his opening success on the track. He is open to improvement and remains off the same mark as his recent second place finish which makes him the one to beat. Banta Bay is a C&D winner and he should build upon his recent effort here over a shorter trip, while Beechwood James has to be respected off this mark and can full the placings.
  1. Mr Nice Guy
  2. Banta Bay
  3. Beechwood James
