Forecast

Athollblair Boy (2/1), Kamra (9/4), National Anthem (5/2), Calin's Lad (4/1), Dandys Gold (13/2), Double Up (9/1), Airwaves (10/1)

Verdict
The Tapeta debutant National Anthem has made a positive start for David Brown (2-3) and that offers hope for Dandys Gold (Roger Fell), Airwaves (Paul Midgley) and Calin's Lad (Ben Haslam), each of whom are making their first start for new connections. However, despite carrying plenty of weight (reduced by the 7lb claimer Izzy Clifton) a strong preference is for the battle-hardened Newcastle regular ATHOLLBLAIR BOY. Nigel Tinkler's charge finished a creditable fourth to Hart Stopper on his return to action a fortnight ago. That form line has been boosted since by second-placed Fuente and could be further enhanced half an hour earlier by Louis Treize.
