Forecasts

Cappacurry Zak (3/1), Take The Cash (6/1), Peculiar Genius (6/1), Fiddlers Bow (7/1), Moores Road (7/1), Matin D'anjou (8/1), Steamboat Quay (8/1), Nomanbehind (8/1), Oscar Lantern (10/1), Asitsohappens (33/1)

Verdict

Cases can be made for quite a few of these. Fiddlers Bow appears to be improving with experience and can hit the frame, but the suggestion is CAPPACURRY ZAK, who has been runner-up five times over fences and deserves to get his head in front. Take The Cash and Steamboat Quay will have their supporters, while Peculiar Genius, Nomanbehind and Matin D'anjou are others to consider.
  1. Cappacurry Zak
  2. Take The Cash
  3. Fiddlers Bow
