Forecast

Main Fact (7/4), Imperial Acolyte (7/2), Precious Eleanor (6/1), Hollywood Ken (13/2), Hurricane Hero (7/1), Demopolis (12/1), Detatched (16/1), Bitasweetsymphony (16/1), Five Star Getaway (20/1)

Verdict
Despite being raised 6lb for finishing third on his seasonal/stable debut for David Pipe at Exeter last month, on another day Main Fact may have won that race and with him likely to strip a fair bit fitter for that first run of the season, he could improve again and is considered. Hurricane Hero was given a stiff task last time out, and with him now in calmer waters, he should be monitored in the betting. The selection is PRECIOUS ELEANOR though, who posted a trio of promising efforts in novice company and was third behind a smart mare when last seen. This drop in grade can allow her to get off the mark over hurdles at the fourth attempt on her handicap debut.
