Forecast

Westend Story (10/11), Woodfort (11/4), One More Hero (5/1), Step Back (9/1), Forgetthesmalltalk (12/1), The Happy Chappy (40/1), Day In Paradise (66/1), Sidsteel (200/1)

Verdict
There are a few former pointers making their debuts or second appearances under rules today, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see something spring a surprise. However, the tentative choice is ONE MORE HERO. A £100,000 purchase for some top connections, he won his second point in good style, and should be the one to beat if managing to overcome a break of coming up for a year. The Happy Chappy is another one who was promising in points, and will be a player if bouncing back from his disappointing defeat on his debut under rules at Hereford, while Champion Bumper fifth Westend Story is also interesting upped in trip. 1.
