Forecast

Neddyvaughan (3/1), Charlotte's Chum (5/1), Fairymount Boy (11/2), Ballyfinboy (6/1), Allied Victory (7/1), Arthamint (8/1), Mic Milano (10/1), Jonathan Wild (16/1), The Shepherd King (20/1), Coral Pearl (33/1)

Verdict
This looks pretty open, and plenty hold some sort of a chance. FAIRYMOUNT BOY has yet to get off the mark but might be worth a try at a likely big price. He gives the impression that this trip on soft ground will prove ideal, and if jumping with some fluency, might cause an upset. Charlotte's Chum is another yet to get off the mark but she's running okay at present and is capable of hitting the frame. Ballyfinboy and Mic Milano are others to consider.
