Nottingham 5.25 3 Polar Forest - 1 point each way @ 10/1 / 6 Epitaph - 1/4 point each way @ 12/1)
(All Bookies go odds to 4th in this race + SkyBet go odds to 5th)POLAR FOREST caught my eye in a Class 3here last week; I wondered why the step up in Grade?;
comes back to a Grade 5 here, having had a spin and also saved handicap mark and with the yard in good form; an in form
young jockey booked, the mark today of 67 - the 5 lbs claim is mouth watering. There is a lot of rain due but that should be no
problem for this horse and with all Bookies odds to 4th and Sky to 5th, the 10/1 looks excellent value. It is being nibbled at so
best to BOG the price. The other one of interest is EPITAPH; always look at Mick Appleby here and this horse has been running
prominently and fading over 2 furlongs further; so it is not hard to visualise it running from the front and trying to get them
chasing down the long straight, as they know they have stamina for a bit further than this trip and ability to front run.
