Forecast

Puchita (13/8), Jem Scuttle (5/2), Aquarius (6/1), Star Cracker (8/1), Andre Amar (12/1), Wicklow Warrior (20/1), Intense Style (25/1), Karalini (33/1)

Verdict
Puchita will be popular given she won her latest start over C&D with a gritty display; even though that first career win came at the 34th time of asking; while Star Cracker is respected as he won his last two starts with a bit in hand. However, they were weak races and he's got more to do now. Therefore, preference goes to JEM SCUTTLE, who has been revived since undergoing wind surgery and, as he doesn't have any penalties for those near misses, this could finally be his time to make the most of his current lenient mark. Jem Scuttle is currently 11lb below his last winning mark and will rarely have a better chance of putting the 'well handicapped' theory to the test.
