Forecast

Twin Star (6/1), Midnight Moss (7/1), Bbold (7/1), Just Call Me Al (15/2), Golden Jeffrey (8/1), Jelski (17/2), Rare Clouds (9/1), Bootlegger (12/1), Meteorite (12/1), Bulls Head (12/1), Ferrobin (14/1), Western Rules (20/1), Successor (20/1), Dontcounturchikens (33/1), Mystic Court (50/1), Suggestion (66/1)

Verdict
A very tricky opener to the card but it might be worth taking a chance on FERROBIN back on his preferred ground. He's a different horse on decent ground and he's starting to look very well-handicapped on bits of his form. Twin Star shapes like a step up in trip would suit last time while Bbold could be in the frame if he finishes his race off better than he did at Ludlow last time.
  1. Ferrobin
  2. Twin Star
  3. Bbold
