Betting

Forecast

Arnold (2/1), Burrows Seeside (9/2), Coolagh Magic (9/2), Phantasmal (7/1), Raabeh (12/1), Rangefield Express (14/1), Spring Campaign (18/1), Lucky Beggar (18/1), Roaring Rory (22/1), Rockley Point (28/1), Prissy Missy (28/1), Somekindasuperstar (33/1), Jordan's Chris (33/1), Oriental Relation (66/1)

Verdict

It'll be interesting to see if support again arrives for COOLAGH MAGIC, who was well backed ahead of his latest start at Southwell where he was returning from a 4-month break. He finished nearer last than first there, but better was clearly expected and the 4-y-o is likely to strip fitter this time. Arnold is a much-respected main danger back at 6f and Phantasmal is another to consider.
