Forecasts

Bacchanel (9/4), Knight Ofthe Realm (11/2), Zerachiel (13/2), Kapgarde King (7/1), How's Vienna (9/1), Day Of Roses (11/1), King Charlie (14/1), Touch Screen (14/1), John Daniell (16/1), Absolutely Bygones (16/1), Pinnacle Peter (16/1), Carqalin (40/1), Monet Moor (100/1)

Verdict

Pinnacle Peter, Day Of Roses and How's Vienna all boast point-to-point form which suggests they are capable of a lot better than has been so far. All are worth a check in the market with the ground drying out. It will not take much to win this and Kapgarde King looks the most straightforward option. An 85 day absence and a rise in the weights make him more vulnerable and a chance is taken that KNIGHT OFTHE REALM can get his jumping together. His small yard have enjoyed some success lately and the form of his Hereford second would be good enough.
  1. Knight Ofthe Realm
  2. Kapgarde King
