Forecasts

Hello George (7/2), Skipthecuddles (7/2), Isaacstown Lad (7/1), King Of Fashion (7/1), Little Bruce (7/1), Kris Spin (15/2), Falcons Fall (12/1), Bryden Boy (16/1), Hainan (22/1), Imperial Prince (28/1), Another Mattie (33/1)

Verdict

With the large majority of these coming back from long breaks fitness is going to be an issue here especially at this gruelling trip in the ground. HELLO GEORGE is one horse in the field who has always run well when fresh and he looked as though he had plenty in hand when dotting up at Newbury in the spring and he may well be able to cope with a 9lb rise. Trainer Ian Duncan runs two in this and while both have chances King Of Fashion looks the best able to cope with this grade and should run well. Skipthecuddles has plenty of potential but will do well to overcome top weight while Falcons Fall is still unexposed in this sphere and is of interest. Hainan will want an easy lead and this looks more likely to be a tune-up for a return to chasing with Little Bruce another having to cope with a step-up in grade but still worthy of a mention.
  1. Hello George
  2. King Of Fashion
  3. Falcons Fall
