Forecast

Ebbisham (7/2), War Department (3/1), Screaming Gemini (5/1), Sharg (5/1), Sumner Beach (13/2), Black Salt (12/1), Caramuru (14/1), Gembari (14/1), Pact Of Steel (14/1), Sounds Approving (14/1), Herm (20/1), Barnay (40/1), Cashel (50/1)

Verdict

War Department is unpenalised for winning an apprentices’ race last week when recording a double over 7f at Newcastle and should confirm earlier running with Ebbisham. Barnay will find this tougher than the seller he won at Lingfield while Sumner Beach has returned a losing favourite the last twice now and steps up in trip. Pact Of Steel was in good form before disappointing at Kempton but SCREAMING GEMINI is getting closer and is taken to finally open his account on the back of a second over track and trip.
