Forecasts

Atomic Angel (11/4), Johnson's Blue (3/1), Ribeye (4/1), Strike Of Lighting (11/1), Ex S'elance (14/1), Storm Force One (14/1), Bonny Houxty (16/1), Sutton Manor (20/1), Loch Linnhe (25/1), Dillarchie (28/1), Getaway Bay (28/1), Ryedale Racer (28/1), Queen Of Fame (33/1), The Black Squirrel (33/1), Shantou Boudicca (150/1), Oscar Blue (250/1)

Verdict

Mark Walford has had his team in decent form in recent months and JOHNSON'S BLUE might be up to landing a second course win of the spring, with the step up to around 3m a potential catalyst for further improvement. Ribeye, a fairly easy winner at Newcastle last time, and the consistent Atomic Angel head the dangers.
