Forecast

Central City (5/2), Liva (7/2), Tigray (7/2), Sweet Marmalade (9/2), Major Snugfit (13/2), Tabou Beach Boy (7/1), Glan Y Gors (11/1), Ska Ridge (16/1), Archive (50/1)

Verdict
The Sedgefield trainer Rebecca Menzies saddles three runners. Of those carrying the John Wade silks, the Musselburgh hurdles scorer Tabou Beach Boy makes more appeal than Ska Ridge. He ought to prove capable of winning on the AW sooner rather than later. However, his other stablemate MAJOR SNUGFIT was brave in defeat here (2m) last week when cruelly kept out of the frame in a blanket finish. Dropped back in trip, this could finally be his day at the expense of some other in-form rivals which include Central City, Liva and Tigray.
