Forecast

Kaizer (3/1), Nataleena (10/3), Zabeel Star (9/2), Major Snugfit (8/1), Nearly There (12/1), Urban Spirit (14/1), Bravantina (16/1), Call Me Madam (16/1), Life Knowledge (16/1), Shine Baby Shine (16/1), Imperial Focus (25/1), Good Man (25/1), Ice Galley (33/1), Question Of Faith (50/1)

Verdict
An interesting opener which features a wealth of previous C&D form to dissect. Zabeel Star finished off strongly to thwart a gamble on the Keith Dalgleish-trained Dark Lochnager in a slow ground jumpers' bumper here 18 days ago, and rates as the form pick of the Karen McLintock trio (also saddles Urban Spirit and Good Man). The filly Nataleena is a real force to be reckoned with at this track (granted a good early gallop) and she's a definite contender for Ben Haslam. However, we'll chance that MAJOR SNUGFIT can overcome his disadvantageous wide draw (stall 13) and gain reward for a series of consistent efforts since switched to the care of Rebecca Menzies.
  1. Major Snugfit
  2. Nataleena
  3. Zabeel Star
