Forecasts

Vice Et Vertu (3/1), Riddlestown (3/1), Basford Ben (6/1), Clubs Are Trumps (7/1), Bertie Lugg (15/2), Financial Climate (15/2), Snowball (10/1), Get Involved (12/1)

Verdict

Clubs Are Trumps is interesting now he is reunited with the last jockey to win on him, while Snowball is forgiven his last run and is better judged on his C&D success on his penultimate start. However, such is the vein of form being enjoyed by RIDDLESTOWN that he is selected to defy a 7lb penalty for his win at this track last week. Basford Ben likes to be up there and should go well, too.
