Forecast

Markov (2/1), Poker School (11/4), Cooking Fat (4/1), Call Me Vic (9/2), Takingrisks (14/1), Cusheen Bridge (14/1)

Verdict
Cusheen Bridge returned from a 10-month absence and ran really well at Wetherby last time. With that under his belt he can get even closer this time and may be able to reverse placings with Poker School. However, MARKOV promised better when scoring at Fontwell on his chasing debut last time and he can follow-up, with Cooking Fat respected in opposition.
  1. Markov
  2. Cusheen Bridge
  3. Cooking Fat
