Forecast

Midnight Midge (15/8), Grageelagh Girl (9/2), Truckers Tangle (5/1), Realta Dawn (13/2), Ourmullion (8/1), Arty Campbell (10/1), Our Three Sons (11/1), Polo The Mumm (20/1)

Verdict
Realta Dawn is the obvious one after her Wincanton win, but she's not particularly consistent, and preference is for tiop-weight GRAGEELAGH GIRL, who hasn't been at her best for a while, but tends to tackle stronger opposition than this and has finally been given a lifeline by the assessor. Ourmullion had excuses (struck into) at Newton Abbot last time, and would be a player if back to form.
