Forecast

Goobinator (2/5), Let The Heirs Walk (2/1), Piedita (7/2), Exelerator Express (5/1), Bushypark (14/1), Hello Bob (25/1), Ever So Cool (25/1), Tartan Bute (40/1), Rob Royal (100/1)

Verdict
Some of the contenders at bigger prices clearly hold some interest although any one of them would need to be smart to take this. Bushypark a point-to-point winner for the Phil Kirby yard is one of the most unexposed types in this while Exelerator Express fresh from a wind op must be respected along with hurdling debutante Piedita although she will have to prove she can handle conditions. Let The Heirs Walk showed that he could progress further when making the most of an easy opportunity at Sedgefield but on this occasion the progressive and versatile GOOBINATOR is preferred after his 10L win at Carlisle that win being franked by the Musselburgh win of the fourth on Thursday.
  1. Goobinator
  2. Let The Heirs Walk
  3. Bushypark
