Forecast

Arabian King (1/4), Cold Harbour (4/1), Croeso Cymraeg (11/2), Star Ascending (12/1), Proxy (16/1)

Verdict

As with the previous handicap there’s plenty of Fibresand form on display with it being hard to ignore the chance of ARABIAN KING, 2-2 at the course the only slight niggle being that he’ll have to cope with a shorter trip. The manner in which he travelled last time suggested that won’t be a problem. He comes up against some hardy types on this surface and both Cold Harbour and Star Ascending are good enough to pounce on any chinks in the selections armour. The former looks the bigger danger having always run consistently here although the latter is now very well handicapped on his old form. Neither Croeso Cymraeg nor Proxy can be ruled out the latter looking interesting for the future.
  1. Arabian King
  2. Cold Harbour
  3. Star Ascending
