Forecasts

Set In Stone (4/1), Balranald (9/2), Kings Creek (5/1), Sword Of Fate (6/1), Diamond State (17/2), Totally Rejected (9/1), Three Castles (10/1), Sarvi (16/1), Fisher Green (20/1), Big Jim Dwyer (20/1), Jorgie (28/1)

Verdict

BALRANALD was an early faller here last time but remains handily weighted for his new yard and is worth another chance in a tightly-knit handicap. Diamond State is sure to make his presence felt having posted a good C&D third on his handicap bow last month, while Set In Stone has been in winning form in jumpers bumpers so needs considering back in this sphere.

  1. BALRANALD (FR)
  2. DIAMOND STATE (FR)
  3. SET IN STONE (IRE)
