Forecasts

Bardd (6/4), Zero Grand (11/4), Du Soleil (11/2), Big Windmill (8/1), Admiral Kid (16/1), Cake de L'Isle (16/1), Radical Archie (20/1), Russian Service (25/1), Cona River (25/1), Billy Hicks (28/1), Esspresso (33/1), Moonlight Flyer (66/1), Heluvagood (100/1), Elav (100/1), Restraint (150/1), Glance Back (150/1)

Verdict

The race that ZERO GRAND was fourth in at Uttoxeter is working out well and is starting to look a strong piece of form that should see him go close. Bardd looks sure to improve on his Sandown debut and should be in the mix here while the unknown quantity is the unbeaten bumper winner Du Soleil. Not seen since November 2015 it would appear that his connections have been patient with him and that patience could be rewarded. Both Russian Service and Admiral Kid can play their part although the former will be better off in handicaps and the latter needs to brush up his jumping technique. 1. Zero Grand 2. Du Soleil 3. Bardd
