Forecast

Rolling Dylan (5/2), Step Back (11/4), Souriyan (4/1), Thomas Patrick (6/1), Surtee Du Berlais (6/1), Say My Name (14/1), Admiral Blake (250/1)

Verdict
ROLLING DYLAN was fairly disappointing when he ran at Haydock but he bounced back to something like his best last time out when taking second at Taunton and the reapplied cheekpieces may well help him finish his race off better this time around. Several of these have a stiff task at the weights and it may well be that a couple of chase debutantes in Step Back and Thomas Patrick are the main dangers with both having shown some useful form over hurdles. Souriyan has some decent form over fences but never looks an easy ride and he’ll need plenty of driving along here to have a chance at the finish.
