Forecast

Longroom (7/2), Qaaraat (9/2), Jeffrey Harris (9/2), Arcavallo (11/2), Patrick (7/1), Rockley Point (10/1), Van Gerwen (12/1), Jorvik Prince (12/1), Marietta Robusti (20/1), Encoded (20/1), Archimedes (25/1)

Verdict
The Midgley-trained pair of Longroom, who makes his first start for the yard, and Patrick are both of interest. The last named travelled well when winning over 6f here recently and should be bang there if in the same form. Jeffrey Harris is another who is more than capable in a race like this if overcoming his tendency to miss the break but the selection is ARCHIMEDES. He blew away the cobwebs after a break and wind-op at Southwell recently and this drop into Class 6 company should see him go close.
  1. Archimedes
  2. Patrick
  3. Jeffrey Harris
