Forecast

Jordan Sport (11/4), Projection (11/2), Ice Lord (6/1), Get Knotted (6/1), Nobly Born (13/2), Bossipop (7/1), Merlin (8/1), Aventinus (10/1), Hakam (10/1), Gulliver (14/1), Outback Traveller (14/1), Magnus Maximus (16/1), Dougan (16/1), Doc Sportello (18/1), Repton (18/1), Parnassian (20/1), Poet's Society (25/1), Blaine (25/1), Lightning Charlie (33/1), Barrington (50/1)

Verdict
BOSSIPOP is in the form of his life currently and he was only just touched off at Chester last time. With conditions like to suit, Tim Easterby's runner gets a narrow vote ahead of Jordan Sport who is another who will appreciate some cut in the ground and may be able to back up his win at Newmarket last time. Doc Sportello can bounce back from a disappointing effort last time out and may prove best of the rest.
  1. Bossipop
  2. Jordan Sport
  3. Projection
