Forecast

Blackcurrent (6/1), Chocoholic (6/1), Star Cracker (13/2), Poppy May (7/1), Amood (15/2), Mr Kodi (17/2), Saltie Girl (11/1), Sharrabang (12/1), Someone Exciting (12/1), Dodgy Bob (12/1), Amelia R (22/1), Jacob's Pillow (22/1), Sea Ewe (80/1), Hop Maddocks (100/1)

Verdict

A porous looking finale (Class 7). It's a major challenge seeking to identify a horse who could step forward in terms of form, so the logical approach is to stick with what we already know. Star Cracker tends to save his better efforts for Newcastle and bravely repelled all challengers from the front-end over C&D a fortnight ago, while Blackcurrent continues to threaten to find a winning opportunity. However, over an additional furlong it's entirely possible that Stella Barclay's Wolverhampton regular SHARRABANG can reverse recent placings with that aforementioned rival.
  1. Sharrabang
  2. Star Cracker
