Forecast

Cool Country (2/1), The Road Home (9/4), Lovely Schtuff (10/3), Kiruna Peak (11/2), Justice Knight (6/1), Wise Coco (8/1), Cool Valley (12/1), An Fear Ciuin (12/1), Gripper (25/1), Placedela Concorde (28/1), Go Guarantor (28/1), Life Knowledge (28/1), Connerys Hill (50/1), Fire Away (50/1)

Verdict

LOVELY SCHTUFF took advantage of a much-reduced mark in good style when finally off the mark at Sedgefield 3 weeks ago and remains well treated despite an 8 lb rise. The Road Home had a bit in hand at Hexham and is another to consider along with Kiruna Peak, who also won last-time out.
