Forecasts

Richmond (5/2), Dineur (3/1), Benvolio (7/2), Vasco Du Mee (5/1), All Great N Theory (10/1), Night Alliance (10/1), Distracted (33/1), Jump Up (100/1)

Verdict

Dineur showed some good form last summer, including when winning at Worcester in a better race than this, while All Great N Theory returns to racing under rules after a long time away, during which he's showed good form in point to points. The suggestion though, is BENVOILO, who was an excellent chaser for Paul Nicholls before transferring to Charles Levinson's yard in November. He hasn't quite been as good for his new handler but the ability should still be there and if can find it again he should prove difficult to beat here.
  1. Benvolio
  2. Dineur
  3. All Great N Theory
