Forecast

Call Me Sid (5/2), Barntown (11/4), Astra Via (15/2), Jac Brown (8/1), Poucor (9/1), Saint Dalina (10/1), Never Equalled (12/1), The Wire Flyer (14/1)

Verdict
Barntown is one of a number of runners with heavy ground form and he could feasibly appreciate this less taxing assignment (than at Cheltenham & Sandown). Meanwhile, the likes of Never Equalled (high in the handicap), Call Me Sid (100-1 Ludlow maiden hurdle winner) and Jac Brown (bumper winner) all have previous Ffos Las experience to draw upon. However, the solution may just lie at the foot of the weights with the Evan Williams-trained mare ASTRA VIA. Although a seven-race maiden, she has shown consistent form and ran her best race to date at Taunton (third) five weeks ago. This could be her day to shine under the capable 7lb claimer Isabel Williams.
