Forecasts

Tim Pat (3/1), Ballybeen (3/1), Greenrock Abbey (11/2), Money Spinner (8/1), Fevertre (8/1), Loch Garman Aris (8/1), High Grounds (9/1), Glance From Clover (12/1), Hooky Street (22/1), Instant De Bonheur (28/1), Folks On The Hill (40/1), Dancing Dani (80/1)

Verdict

TIM PAT had the form of his Wetherby second franked by the third winning next time and is fancied to go one better off the same mark. Something can't have been right with High Grounds at Wetherby over Christmas (travelled well but stopped quickly) and he could provide the main threat if bouncing back to the level of his previous Market Rasen win. Handicap-newcomer Ballybeen may prove best of rest.
