Forecast

Premier D'troice (2/1), Teescomponentstrig (11/4), Tango Boy (9/2), I'd Better Go Now (8/1), Mercian Knight (8/1), Champagne Noir (10/1), Ship Of The Fen (25/1)

Verdict

A tightly-knit handicap in which most of the runners have some sort of a chance. MERCIAN KNIGHT returns to the scene of his victory in December and another good show is anticipated on handicap bow. He stays and will appreciate underfoot conditions. Teescompnentstrig looks a danger and stayed on well to score at Newcastle last time, while hat-trick seeking Premier D'troice and Wincanton winner I'd Better Go Now also have claims. It will be interesting to see if the wind op helps the cause of Champagne Noir who has shown some ability.
  1. Mercian Knight
  2. Teescomponentstrig
  3. Premier D'troice
