Verdict

With so many unexposed horses in the event it is hard to rule out virtually any of the contenders. Nicky Henderson's Claimantakinforgan has the best form in the book but the yard has a dismal winning record in this race over the last 30 years. BLACK OP looked a horse of real potential when scoring on his rules debut at Doncaster and is reportedly held in high esteem by connections. He is a tentative selection in a race where serious consideration is also given to Larry and Bomber's Moon.
  1. Black Op
  2. Claimantakinforgan
  3. Larry
