KING'S MIRACLE is the call with Wicklewood and Ride A White Swan respected as dangers. The selection is an interesting participant off 48. Her breeding suggests that she should be some way better than she has actually shown on the track and we are hopeful of a big run. Wicklewood is one of two from Christine Dunnett's stable. He was not completely discredited in a recent maiden at the course and William Carson is an interesting booking. Ride A White Swan has had plenty of racing at modest levels. The draw is a fair one tonight. Louisiade was well punted at Southwell though that confidence was not reflected on the track. Tadlil is a long standing maiden on an artificial surface. Grizedale and Flamestone return from absences and the market needs to be closely monitored. King's Miracle has less black marks than most and is afforded our nomination.
