Forecast

Fine Jewellery (2/1), Jaunty Inflight (9/4), Polo The Mumm (5/2), Lined With Silver (7/1), Billy My Boy (8/1), Cold Knight (10/1), Triggywinkle (12/1), Tuffstuff (20/1)

Verdict
Few of these convince but it may be worth taking a risk on the fitness of FINE JEWELLERY. His rider is booked to come here from Cheltenham for the one ride and the stable are 4-12 in the past fortnight. The form of his last run has worked out well enough and he has more going for him than most in this contest. Triggywinkle may want a shorter trip and Polo The Mumm has looked better over further. Jaunty Inflight is still to prove himself on ground this quick and was a huge disappointment last time. Cold Knight would take some catching if allowed to dictate matters up front whilst Billy My Boy does not appeal as being potentially well handicapped.
