Forecasts

Aki Bomaye (11/4), Macfin (3/1), Shah An Shah (4/1), Lord Sparky (11/2), Peur De Rien (8/1), Smuggler's Blues (12/1), Queen Of The Court (12/1), Generator City (14/1), Fingerontheswitch (25/1), Artemision (28/1)

Verdict

Winning-pointer AKI BOMAYE made an encouraging start over fences when second at Worcester on his handicap bow/return and should have more to offer over this longer trip. Lord Sparky has an excellent record around here and arrives on the back of a good second at Southwell, while Peur de Rien should prove sharper for his return.
