Forecasts

Beware The Bear (9/2), Delusionofgrandeur (5/1), Keltus (6/1), Bells 'n' Banjos (15/2), Final Nudge (8/1), Laurium (9/1), Label Des Obeaux (10/1), Calett Mad (10/1), I Just Know (16/1), Baby Bach (16/1), Minella On Line (18/1), No No Mac (28/1)

Verdict

Nicky Henderson holds a strong hand here with both Beware The Bear and Laurium. A win for either would not surprise, though preference is for MINELLA ON LINE, who takes a step up in class here but is fancied to cope. Delusionofgrandeur could give them all plenty to think about from up front, while it would a surprise if Label Des Obeaux were not there at the business end.
  1. Minella On Line
  2. Laurium
  3. Delusionofgrandeur
