Forecast

Yourholidayisover (5/4), Clonusker (5/1), Instingtive (13/2), Grayhawk (7/1), Jump And Jump (9/1), Alottarain (10/1), Taroum (16/1), Nouailhas (40/1), Bonnie Major (100/1)

Verdict
At the age of ten, it is unlikely that YOURHOLIDAYISOVER has much more improvement to come. But truth be told, he won’t need to find much to brush this lot aside and appeals as the best of a modest bunch. Clonusker has been found an soft opening to make his chasing debut and is worth noting for support, while Taroum holds claims on the very best of his form, so cannot be ruled out of making the frame. 1. Yourholidayisover 2. Clonusker 3. Taroum
