Forecast

Sweettoothtommy (3/1), St Johns Point (5/1), King Charlie (7/1), Galros Lady (7/1), Better Days (17/2), Dropzone (9/1), Fuhgeddaboudit (10/1), The Mythologist (12/1), Comical Red (16/1), Captains Horse (20/1), Creative Boru (100/1)

Verdict
Most of this field have question marks against them and there isn’t that much solid form to go on although that does give ST JOHNS POINT a chance of opening his account over fences. He’s hardly a world beater but a repeat of his Musselburgh second ought to be enough to enable him to go close here. Based on his point-to-point form The Mythologist looks like he could be one to take an interest in back from a break and going handicapping over fences looking more his bag than running over hurdles. Better Days needs to rebound from a couple of poor effort but the better ground may well help him and Sweettoothtommyshouldn’t be totally written off if he can revert to his debut second over fences. King Charlie is another to throw in the mix on his penultimate run and off a basement mark he’s not out of this. 1. St Johns Point 2. The Mythologist 3. Sweettoothtommy
