Forecasts

Permission Granted (11/2), Big Bad Dream (11/2), Always Tipsy (6/1), Oliver's Island (17/2), Trongate (17/2), Golden Chancer (9/1), Whoa Black Betty (12/1), Handy Hollow (14/1), Lissen To The Lady (14/1), Millie Of Mayo (14/1), Top Billing (16/1), Orient Sunset (18/1), Dorette (28/1), Rockliffe (28/1), Squire's Tale (66/1)

Verdict

This looks wide open and a chance is taken on ORIENT SUNSET, who appeared to take a step forward at Newcastle and there's a good chance that she'll progress again now moving up in trip on this handicap debut. Always Tipsy is taken to reverse C&D placings with Permission Granted on these revised terms and the 11-y-o is feared most ahead of Oliver's Island and Trongate.

  1. ORIENT SUNSET
  2. ALWAYS TIPSY
  3. OLIVER'S ISLAND (IRE)
