Forecast

Major Hindrance (5/2), Fergal Mael Duin (3/1), Ckalco Des Loges (13/2), Granville Island (7/1), Special Wells (7/1), Timon's Tara (8/1), West Wizard (12/1), Hargam (14/1)

Verdict
Special Wells likes it around here and is perfectly happy on heavy ground. This is his level and off this mark, fresh from a recent return to action, he looks one to beat. Timon's Tara won on this card 12 months ago and will make her presence felt from the foot of the weights, but MAJOR HINDRANCE is a progressive type who has more to offer over fences and is well suited to testing surfaces. Granville Island should be thereabouts, but he has forgotten how to win and a place may be the best he can hope for.
  1. Major Hindrance
  2. Special Wells
  3. Granville Island
