Forecast

Chocolate Box (3/1), Inconceivable (11/2), Master Archer (11/2), Flight Of Fantasy (7/1), Nordic Combined (8/1), The Otmoor Poet (10/1), Inn The Bull (12/1), Onorina (14/1), Tobacco Road (20/1), Balancing Time (20/1), Lovely Story (20/1), Ettihadi (25/1), Ban Shoof (33/1), Gambol (33/1), Takbeer (50/1), Sheila's Fancy (50/1)

Verdict
CHOCOLATE BOX looks guaranteed to be suited by the step up in trip following his rather luckless defeat over 1m4f here last month. He has undeniably taken his time to find his feet, but longer distances appear to have been his making, and from a fair mark of 72, he can provide Luca Cumani and Jamie Spencer with a second winner on tonight's card. Viable threats will come from the likes of previous C&D winning mare Onorina, the improving Inn The Bull and the long distance traveller Nordic Combined.
