Forecast

Purgatory (3/1), Vive La Difference (7/2), Noble Peace (7/1), Coverham (8/1), Robsdelight (8/1), Pamper (10/1), Uzincso (12/1), Kings Royal Hussar (12/1), Squelch (14/1), Swiss Cheer (16/1), John Clare (16/1), Sir Hamilton (20/1), Spencers Son (25/1), Flaunt It (33/1)

Verdict
In a contest lacking strength in depth the best option looks to be PURGATORY who is progressive having won two of his last three and one of them came here where he also ran well in the spring on ground similar to what he will encounter today. Others with likable claims include Uzincso who comes into his first handicap after improving last time out and Squelch who ran a sound race on return suggesting her one to note next time out.
  1. Purgatory
  2. Uzincso
  3. Squelch
