Forecasts

Gunfleet (3/1), Clondaw Native (4/1), Cake de L'Isle (4/1), Dueling Banjos (13/2), Sir Will (8/1), Southfield Royale (10/1), Nautical Nitwit (16/1), Fingerontheswitch (16/1), Another Bill (16/1), Join The Clan (20/1)

Verdict

Gunfleet showed his best form to date when scoring last time at Southwell and merits plenty respect now switched to handicaps off what appears a fair mark. Equally, Dueling Banjos, a fairly reliable chaser, would be entitled to go close reverting to hurdles off this mark if he brings his best stuff. Cake de L'Isle could have some more to say on the back of a wind operation going over a longer trip having run on well at this venue in December but the vote goes to CLONDAW NATIVE. He's progressing nicely this season, as evidenced with his win at Ascot in December and looks to be on a decent mark here as he attempts to justify an entry in next month's Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
