Forecasts

Niceandeasy (9/4), Skipthescales (4/1), Too Many Chiefs (5/1), Letemgo (7/1), Rivabodiva (9/1), Royal Salute (16/1), Chicoria (20/1), Hartforth (20/1), Bruichladdich (22/1), Lastin' Memories (33/1), Imperial Prince (33/1)

Verdict

Despite the steadier of 12 stones a chance is taken that the unbeaten NICEANDEASY can see out the extra half mile and maintain his winning sequence. Too Many Chiefs shouldn't be far away with underfoot conditions to suit, while Royal Salute also has good claims if putting in a clear round this time. Bruichladdich and Letemgo are others with prospects in a trappy contest.
  1. Niceandeasy
  2. Royal Salute
  3. Too Many Chiefs
