Forecast

Pavers Pride (11/8), Araifjan (7/1), Only Alone (15/2), Equipped (11/1), Sheepscar Lad (12/1), Shepherd's Purse (12/1), Young Tiger (16/1), Arnold (16/1), Lezardrieux (16/1), Choosey (22/1), Desert Ace (22/1), Crosse Fire (33/1), Billy Dylan (50/1), Robot Boy (100/1)

Verdict

A typically competitive sprint for the track where the draw may have a part to play with recent Ayr scorer PAVERS PRIDE nicely positioned in stall 5 after his smooth win last time. Despite his penalty he’s still 3lb well-in with his yard’s sprinters going well. Quite a few of the other fancied runners will have to try and overcome wide draws and that may hamper the chances of Sheepscar Lad, Lezardrieux and Araifjan the last-named would be interesting back at 6f. The stablemate of the selection Desert Ace deserves respect while Arnold back with headgear on and the well-drawn Only Alone are two others to throw into the mix.
  1. Pavers Pride
  2. Desert Ace
  3. Only Alone
