Forecast

Good News (11/8), Pleney (2/1), Jonnigraig (13/2), Robin De Broome (8/1), First Assembly (9/1), Hold Me Tight (12/1), False Getaway (20/1), Bluebell Sally (33/1), Polar Light (40/1)

Verdict
Good News produced a fine display to win here after a long layoff last month, he's fairly treated in his follow-up bid with his rider taking off the 5lb increase. A repeat of that effort will see him in the firing line but this might go to PLENEY. He finished third on reappearance at Hexham last month and the pair that beat him have advertised the form as being strong since. Tim Vaughan's charge must have strong claims if building on that. Robin De Broome has been backed in two runs for this trainer but hasn't justified the support just yet.
