Forecast

First Response (11/4), Red Bond (9/2), Motawaafeq (7/1), My Target (15/2), Silver Dust (15/2), Paparazzi (9/1), Little Jo (9/1), Tangled (12/1), Vive La Difference (14/1), Thaayer (14/1), Pastime (20/1)

Verdict
An ultra-competitive Class 4 handicap featuring an array of useful horses who are more than capable of taking this prize. My Target and Little Jo were involved in a three-way photo finish over C&D in November with the former springing a 25-1 surprise, while the Tim Easterby-trained Vive La Difference has risen through the ranks with a productive spell of course form. However, we'll elect to focus upon First Response and PAPARAZZI. Given the fact that Tracy Waggott's Spennymoor string are in flying form, the selection is fancied to avenge his recent C&D defeat (on 3lb better terms). Others of interest for the future include Pastime and Thaayer.
  1. Paparazzi
  2. First Response
  3. Little Jo
