Forecast

Charlie Arthur (3/1), Atalanta Queen (7/2), Geography Teacher (6/1), Closer Than Close (6/1), Amber Rock (8/1), Osmosis (9/1), Cliff Bay (10/1), God Has Given (12/1), Alpha Tauri (14/1), Rosin Box (16/1), The Gingerbreadman (20/1)

Verdict
The form figures that Charlie Arthur brings into the race look quite attractive but there are some questions that he has to answer such as track, trip and mark and until he’s given a positive answer to those its best to look elsewhere and towards the more established Fibresand performers. First and foremost amongst those is ATALANTA QUEEN who arrives here on the back of a good effort over C&D where she may have been played a little too early and was caught close home; she has every chance of landing a 4th course win. Geography Teacher despite a rather laboured second last time ought to do better in first-time blinkers back over 1m. Cliff Bay and Alpha Tauri two others to take a note of.
  1. Atalanta Queen
  2. Geography Teacher
  3. Alpha Tauri
