Forecast

Pammi (11/4), Paper Promise (10/3), Summer Lightening (5/1), Keep The River (6/1), Gemologist (8/1), Millie The Minx (10/1), Travel Lightly (12/1), Tippingituptonancy (16/1), Colorado Gold (25/1)

Verdict
This course seems to suit PAMMI and the consistent mare is worth a small investment in a weak finale. She's not yet fully exposed over hurdles and will be suited by the likely strong pace (Millie The Minx is a prime candidate to set a decent tempo.) The in-form Summer Lightening has flourished of late but it remains to be seen if she can reproduce away from Catterick now she's creeping up the weights. Tippingituptonancy is yet to justify her £185,000 price tag at the sales but she too is unexposed for handicaps and could still have more to offer. Keep The River is another to bear in mind.
  1. Pammi
  2. Summer Lightening
  3. Tippingituptonancy
