Betting

Forecast

Doubling Dice (5/4), Carlos Felix (3/1), Tindrum (6/1), Zambezi Magic (7/1), Mr Carpenter (15/2), Andaleep (8/1), Brentford Hope (10/1), Grinling (14/1), Mandarin (14/1), Rainbow Jet (25/1), Speed Company (40/1)

Verdict

Hugo Palmer's DOUBLING DICE couldn't have been any more impressive when bolting up by 15 lengths on his turf debut at Hamilton earlier this month. He looks a smart prospect, and gets the vote to make a winning start in handicaps with the promise of better to come. Mr Carpenter has made a bright start for Tim Easterby and he looks sure to go well again, along with Tindrum and Carlos Felix.
