Forecast

Persian Snow (1/2), Colbert Station (11/4), Invisible Man (8/1), Sam Cavallaro (11/1), Nickname Exit (20/1), Moscow Chancer (20/1), Mr Syntax (25/1), Mr Moss (40/1), Free World (50/1)

Verdict
PERSIAN SNOW looks likely to prove very hard to beat as he chases a second success here. The selection would qualify for the big races in this category at Cheltenham and Aintree should he finish in the first three here and he can give his experienced amateur jockey a second win in the last week in this sphere. Invisible Man ran well last time out and is a regular in these races around here and can repeat last years second while Sam Cavallaro can claim third over a trip that likely stretches his stamina. 1. Persian Snow 2. Invisible Man 3. Sam Cavallaro
