Forecasts

Gallahers Cross (4/5), Bullion Boss (11/4), Arnica (6/1), Get The Appeal (7/1), Permission Granted (8/1), Bollingerandkrug (9/1), Golden Emblem (10/1), Pammi (22/1), Get On John (50/1)

Verdict

BOLLINGERANDKRUG is bred for this sort of test so the fact he managed to dictate a 2m novice at Kelso is encouraging. He's taken to follow up on handicap debut at the main expense of Golden Emblem, who left her previous efforts behind when defying her opening mark at Market Rasen. Bullion Boss is best of the others.
