Forecast

I'mstillyourbaby (4/1), Johanna Yeats (4/1), Likable Chancer (5/1), Feyan (6/1), Costalita (6/1), Seskin Flyer (13/2), The Grey Guy (7/1), High Viz (14/1), Otzi (14/1), Lotus Hill (16/1), Hughies Bay (16/1), Northern Love (20/1), Theophilus (20/1), Cadawill (33/1), Military Poet (50/1)

Verdict
I'mstillyourbaby could emerge as a player on his handicap debut, while Likable Chancer couldn't be ruled out if taking his chance. Johanna Yeats is going the right way and could have a say and Hughies Bay could also join battle for some prize money. Feyan is another possible contender, but COSTALITA looks to have an outstanding chance of following up an easy win last time.
  1. Costalita
  2. Johanna Yeats
  3. Feyan
