Forecasts

Highway To Success (5/2), Dorking Boy (9/2), Bang On (5/1), Le Ligerien (6/1), Poucor (8/1), Fresno Emery (12/1), Graceful James (16/1), Bardd (16/1), Deadline Diva (20/1), Arcade Attraction (25/1), Bleu Et Noir (25/1), Man Of The North (25/1), Metatrons Cube (33/1), Hollywood Ken (33/1), Bard Of Brittany (40/1), Golden Poet (66/1), D'waterside (100/1)

Verdict

BANG ON finished just in front of Le Ligerien over C&D a fortnight ago and both should have their part to play again now. Preference is for Jeremy Scott's charge, who was a winner here as a novice and should be sharper after that first start since April. Plumpton winner Poucor might prefer to see some rain, while Dorking Boy shaped promisingly at Ascot this month and will be fitter today. Highway To Success has 9lb in hand on the assessor after landing a 'Hands and Heels' Novices' contest at Wincanton a week ago and has to considered on the back of that.
