Forecast

Matewan (1/1), Arabic Culture (7/2), Battle Of Marathon (7/2), Sulafaat (12/1), Jus Pires (16/1), Trinity Star (18/1), Stamford Raffles (25/1), Billy Ray (25/1)

Verdict
A competitive opener in which the flourishing C&D specialist Sulafaat sinks her teeth into much stronger opposition for the Sedgefield handler Rebecca Menzies. The form based trio of Arabic Culture, Matewan and BATTLE OF MARATHON are all closely matched on a plethora of interwoven form lines, but off the back of a particularly solid performance in a Class 2 handicap at Lingfield (1m4f) a fortnight ago the John Ryan-trained runner could offer the solution.
  1. Battle Of Marathon
  2. Matewan
  3. Arabic Culture
