Forecasts

Stockbridge Tap (13/8), Eastern Sheriff (9/2), The Navigator (9/2), Trumpet Man (5/1), Sociologist (6/1), Akamanto (8/1), Funny Man (17/2), Ajman Prince (14/1), Euro Implosion (22/1), Billy Ray (40/1)

Verdict

This looks another wide open contest with Stockbridge Tap likely to be winning in this sphere sooner rather than later after he was by no means disgraced when runner-up to a decent sort on his handicap bow recently. After he finally recorded a first win on turf, Sociologist must enter calculations given how well he won at Hamilton at the start of the month. At a bigger price, Ajman Prince is worth a market check after finishing third in a decent event on the AW when last seen. However, a chance is taken on EASTERN SHERIFF being back to his best after he looked one to follow in handicaps prior to running too bad to be true when upped slightly in class last time.
  1. Eastern Sheriff
  2. Stockbridge Tap
  3. Sociologist
