Forecast

Shanty Alley (3/1), Silent Steps (7/2), Virnon (7/2), Dee Star (4/1), The Ogle Gogle Man (7/1), Inch Lala (12/1), Bassarabad (33/1)

Verdict
Hardly a solid profile to be found in this opening handicap despite the course win of Silent Steps last time out she’s never been the most consistent and both her previous wins have been followed by an abysmal performance despite being ridden by Bryony Frost each time (3-3 on the horse). The Ogle Gogle Man would have claims if his last sub-standard performance could be ignored whilst Inch Lala and Shanty Alley come with risks. It may be better to give VIRNON the benefit of the doubt having produced some of his better performances around here this mark 4lb below his last winning one. Dee Star has potential in this arena but does have a fair absence to overcome but his mark looks a fair one.
  1. Virnon
  2. Dee Star
  3. Silent Steps
