Forecast

Hieronymus (2/1), Phoenix Star (5/2), Briyouni (8/1), Waqaas (8/1), Rich Approach (10/1), Avenue Of Stars (10/1), Furqaan (16/1), Comeonfeeltheforce (16/1), Mr Mac (16/1), Kodiline (25/1), Latent Heat (33/1), Knockmaole Boy (100/1)

Verdict
This is an extremely weak race on paper. Furqaan is intriguing as she makes her handicap debut. This is particularly weaker than the contests she has been running in previously. Waqaas threatened to take advantage of his dwindling mark when fourth last time, as too did Avenue Of Stars who should appreciate the return to this trip. Recent winning form tends to be hard to come by in these races and with his jockeys claim taken into account, HIERONYMUS is effectively 3lb well in after breaking his duck last time out. He is taken to follow-up that success ahead of Rich Approach who has posted a pair of encouraging efforts since returning to the track this year.
  1. Hieronymus
  2. Rich Approach
  3. Avenue Of Stars
