Verdict

None of the runners in this handicap seem that well treated so after a progressive couple of runs this term FOREST FLYER looks the call ahead of Hunters Belt and Blazing Desert. With a good record over course and distance the pick's short head victory on the latest of those last time is beginning to work out well. That was just his second run after returning from a break and now even fitter he can overcome his revised mark. Hunters Belt is still unexposed enough to improve and after running well in defeat on just his second handicap run last time he has to be respected from just 1lb higher. Blazing Desert is unexposed on the level and showed enough in his last run to suggest this is where his future might lie. Lisbon Lion is well weighted based on his run in an Amateur Riders race in May but will need to improve on his two subsequent runs while Belwearie was expected to go better last time so could show up in the mix. Not an easy race to fathom but Forest Flyer is improving this season and can follow up.
