Forecast

Mr Medic (7/2), Crosspark (5/1), Willie Boy (6/1), Greybougg (6/1), Henri Parry Morgan (8/1), Colin's Brother (8/1), Gores Island (10/1), Fortunate George (12/1), Exxaro (12/1), West Wizard (16/1)

Verdict
It is worth chancing the unexposed WILLIE BOY here for the Venetia Williams team. He won with plenty in hand in his second steeplechase at Uttoxeter and could easily prove better than his opening handicap mark. Crosspark is also respected despite top-weight and the presence of the champion jockey for the first time speaks volumes about his expectations. Likable front-runner Greybougg is capable of a big run also if he is ready for his return.
  1. Willie Boy
  2. Crosspark
  3. Greybougg
