Kayf Blanco (11/4), Mercian Prince (7/2), Knockgraffon (9/2), Sam Red (11/2), Takingrisks (7/1), Grey Gold (14/1), Special Catch (16/1), Pain Au Chocolat (33/1)

Verdict

A good race in prospect and with the Dan Skelton team in it could be worth giving SAM RED another chance in handicap company, after a decent run in a novices' event behind Mount Mews at Doncaster last time. He will have the best handle on how his runner compares to his former inmate Knockgraffon, who has gone up 1lb since joining Olly Murphy and should give a very good account. Mercian Prince continues to go the right way and will need to maintain that to back up his Kempton success, while Takingrisks and Special Catch should both be thereabouts when the prizes are handed out.
  1. Sam Red

  3. Special Catch
