Forecast

Gala Ball (6/4), Warriors Tale (2/1), Cepage (2/1), Max Ward (9/4), Sirabad (4/1)

Verdict
GALA BALL looks like the one to beat and a 6lb rise for his recent success seems unlikely to stop him. Max Ward has made a promising start to his chase career but may be more at home on faster ground while Cepage hails from a yard in flying form but may struggle to overhall the top two.
