Forecasts

Searching (11/4), Dan Gun (3/1), Cotton Club (7/1), Hahadi (7/1), Cougar Kid (10/1), Raise Your Shades (12/1), Eric The Third (16/1), Bentons Lad (16/1), All Good Things (18/1), Mac Amara (20/1), Baron Von Chill (25/1), Dr Oakley (66/1), Templier (100/1), Whats Your Beef (125/1)

Verdict

This looks a slightly tougher heat than Searching won at Exeter last time out but even under a penalty he’s expected to go well having found his form over hurdles and confirm form with the disappointing Dan Gun. Hahadi may still have a little more to offer in handicaps although his fitness has to be taken on trust as does hat of Raise The Shades another returning from a break who looks capable at this level. Cougar Kid always has to be respected here as should the well handicapped Cotton Club, he’s yet to show much over hurdles but any market support may well suggest better to come. BENTONS LAD gets the vote, another who still looks on a handy mark after his Huntingdon win.
  1. Bentons Lad
  2. Searching
