Forecast

Able Jack (7/2), A Likely Story (5/1), Noirvento (6/1), Masalai (7/1), Tynamite (7/1), Clifftop (8/1), Kinch (17/2), Never Rains (14/1), Dance Alone (14/1), Red All Star (20/1), Nightflight (20/1), Amazing One (25/1), Sir Lolypop (25/1), Russian Vine (25/1), Hidden Spark (33/1), Rock Samphire (40/1), Polly Glide (50/1)

Verdict
Now in the winning habit, ABLE JACK can add to his win over 1m on Friday evening off a 6lb lower mark. The Iffraaj gelding could possible get a decent pull into the race from the front-running Polly Glide if the daughter of Nathaniel gets across from stall 14. C&D winner A Likely Story has been running well in defeat in a couple of starts at this track since last month and provide stiff opposition with Clifftop, not beaten far at this track over 1m last month, giving another solid account of himself. Red All Star can go well at a price while the David Marnane-trained Tynamite is getting no luck with his draw of late.
  1. Able Jack
