Forecasts

Coole Hall (4/9), Knockrobin (5/2), Behindthelines (8/1), Rowdy Robin (14/1), Shepherd's Bight (16/1), Rising Marienbard (40/1), Castle On A Cloud (40/1), Call Me (50/1), Outnumbered (100/1), Mick's Wish (100/1), Royal Summit (100/1)

Verdict

On what the form book says, it is not easy to envisage too many of these being involved at the business end and, with respect to potential improver Knockrobin in receipt of 10lb, COOLE HALL looks to be the class act in this field and he may be capable of successfully conceding weight all round after his win last time was boosted. Behindthelines and Rowdy Robin are both worth market checks, while Rising Marienbard might get a bit closer to the action now stepped up to this trip.
  1. Coole Hall
  2. Knockrobin
  3. Behindthelines
