Forecast

Lucky's Dream (7/4), Clem A (10/3), Paddyplex (13/2), Corked (17/2), Howzer Black (10/1), Curfewed (12/1), Hector's Here (14/1), Palavecino (16/1), Bin Makfi (33/1), Bobba Tee (50/1), The Game Of Life (50/1), Suaimhneach (80/1)

Verdict
A number of in-form rivals do battle, and that is where the focus should lie in seeking the winner. Both Corked (on a hat-trick) and Curfewed (form franked) tackle stronger opposition (Class 5) seeking to continue to progress, while Clem A moves away from Wolverhampton in his hat-trick mission for the soon to be retiring trainer Alan Bailey. However, we'll opt to row-in with the Ian Williams-trained Chelmsford regular LUCKY'S DREAM on the strength of a solid overall career strike-rate (5-21) and with the suspicion that he had plenty in the locker when scoring at the Essex venue 26 days ago. Of the remainder, Palvecino and Paddyplex aren't totally discounted.
  1. Lucky's Dream
  2. Corked
  3. Paddyplex
