Forecasts

Chain Of Beacons (3/1), Landmarque (4/1), Runswick Days (5/1), Doubledisdoubledat (6/1), Bridge End (8/1), Shine A Diamond (17/2), Top Cat Dj (9/1), Ballythomas (10/1), My Idea (12/1), Captains Horse (12/1), Oscar Lateen (33/1)

Verdict

A rather trappy affair with question marks surrounding most of the protagonists. Should the introduction of blinkers have a galvanising effect on LANDMARQUE, James Ewart's charge looks well-equipped to defy top-weight on the evidence of his recent effort over C&D where he would have gone close but for costly mistake. Should Chains of Beacon's stamina hold out, he looks sure to be thereabouts whilst Doubledisdoubledat has improvement in him too and looks feasibly-treated. 1. Landmarque 2. Doubledisdoubledat 3. Chain Of Beacons
