Forecast

Dazzling Darren (7/4), Bad Attitude (3/1), Prince Percy (3/1), Sophar Sogood (9/2), Saracen Star (12/1), Critique (12/1), Zero Limits (12/1), Paint It Black (14/1), American Dreamer (25/1), Sea Bright (33/1)

Verdict
An open looking finale. It may have only been a classified stakes race he won last time, but it speaks volumes that DAZZLING DARREN is the sole representative on this card for Irish trainer Gavin Cromwell who always does well with his runners when sending them to England. He can kick on now and record a quick-fire double. Bad Attitude is also of considerable interest given he only ran three days ago when bumping into the race-fit/well-fancied Kybosh on handicap debut at Kempton. Also in the mix is the consistent Sophar Sogood who hasn't finished out of the first two in three handicap starts over the past six months, and it seems likely he will do so again here.
  1. Dazzling Darren
  2. Sophar Sogood
  3. Bad Attitude
