Betting

Forecast

Kodiak Attack (9/4), Michaels Choice (2/1), Society Star (5/2), Bluebell Time (5/1), Disruptor (16/1)

Verdict

Michaels Choice has yet to hit the frame this term but has been contesting better races than this and has still shown a sufficient level of form to indicate he'll go close. However, he has to concede 12lb to SOCIETY STAR, not to mention the additional 7lb claimed by the promising Angus Villiers. The Cowell filly landed a modest maiden last time but did so in confident fashion and handles cut in the ground should conditions soften further. Kodiak Attack is open to improvement but made heavy weather of things when winning at Lingfield and Bluebell Time and Disruptor were both rather low-key when last seen.
