Forecast

Central City (4/1), The Game Is On (4/1), Dangerous Ends (4/1), Croeso Cymraeg (6/1), Dreamboat Dave (7/1), Balgees Time (8/1), Fair Power (10/1), Secratario (11/1), Bayston Hill (12/1), Greek Kodiac (12/1), Oblate (25/1), Engrave (50/1)

Verdict
Plenty of those at the top end of the handicap have been running well of late and the in-form filly BALGEES TIME is a narrow selection. She has ran well in France twice recently as well as being narrowly denied at Wolverhampton and a repeat of any of those would see her go close. Central City, Dangerous Ends and The Game Is On have all been consistent in recent weeks and should be vying for the places.
