Forecast

Fridtjof Nansen (5/1), Annabelle Rock (5/1), Never Back Down (11/2), Amanaat (7/1), Art Of Unity (9/1), Enough Said (9/1), Aleef (12/1), Plough Boy (14/1), Abstraction (16/1), Jungle Jane (16/1), Geological (16/1), Nordic Passage (16/1), Super Julius (16/1), She's My Dream (20/1), Bailly (20/1), That's Not Me (20/1), It's All A Joke (33/1)

Verdict

SHE'S MY DREAM needs to put a below par run last time out at Cork (arguably from a poor draw) behind her but if doing so she may be the answer in this tricky opening race. She had previously been racing with enthusiasm throughout the summer and has been placed on this surface in the past. Nordic Passage faces a tough challenge at the weights but he has done little wrong (apart from not settling) on both his racecourse starts while Aleef would have a better chance if the draw had been kinder but if things fall his way then he is very capable off his current mark.
