Forecast

Hang Tough (15/8), Fizzlestix (11/4), Oliver's Island (8/1), Pleney (9/1), The Black Squirrel (11/1), Jour A La Plage (14/1), Duffy Allen (14/1), Dubai Outlaw (16/1), Boher Lad (20/1), Mr Woolley (25/1), Shaiyzar (33/1), Riddlestown (33/1), Betterlatethanneva (50/1)

Verdict
The race that HANG TOUGH won at Warwick last time wasn’t a strong one and being critical few got into the race but he remains at the right end of the handicap with the excellent Jonjo O’Neill Jr. taking the ride. This won’t be as much of a test as his last race but he ought to have more progress left in him. Fizzlestix is the other recent winner in the field although his victory came over fences in a weak contest on the upside he can race off the same mark on the downside he does have his quirks. The race lacks depth with the handicap newcomer Jour A La Plage with cheekpieces on for the first-time worth noting in market moves. Top weight Pleney also deserves a mention returning from a break.
  1. Hang Tough
  2. Jour A La Plage
  3. Fizzlestix
