Forecast

Blackjack Kentucky (5/2), Geordie B (7/2), Liosduin Bhearna (6/1), Coded Message (7/1), Remastered (8/1), Flemcara (12/1), Bryden Boy (14/1), Point Of Principle (16/1), Shades Of Midnight (18/1), Culture De Sivola (28/1), Sakhee's City (33/1), Kris Spin (100/1)

Verdict
The class element of the race lies with the topweight and Rendlesham winner from last year Shades Of Midnight but he would have to be at his very best to defy this mark and a long absence. Testing conditions would enable Coded Message to show her true worthy having run well outside of handicaps of late whilst Blackjack Kentucky is a leading candidate as he steps into handicap company for the first time having recently recorded his first victory. GEORDIE B caught the eye when returning to action although the race wasn’t run to suit he still showed that he has obvious claims off the mark.
  1. Geordie B
  2. Blackjack Kentucky
  3. Coded Message
