Forecast

Temper Trap (6/4), Swinging Eddie (6/1), Peerless Percy (6/1), The Brora Pobbles (7/1), Scots Sonnet (17/2), Rosemay (12/1), Carlow Boy (12/1), Chinese Spirit (16/1), Abushamah (20/1), My Valentino (28/1), Dorset Blue (33/1), Jagerbond (50/1), Wildmountainthyme (100/1)

Verdict
Not many real contenders so recent Musselburgh 7f scorer TEMPER TRAP may well make a very bold bid to follow up over the extra two furlongs. With so many out of form or quite simply of very limited ability a chance is taken on handicap debutant PEERLESS PERCY who didn't show much in three starts last year but is bred to go further and starts his handicap career for a fine yard off a tempting mark. Rosemay won a couple of times last season prior to a long absence and hasn't yet been in the same form since, but any sign of market confidence might be noteworthy. Although he's never raced over this far, Swinging Eddie could prove best of the rest.
  1. Peerless Percy
  2. Temper Trap
