Forecasts

Cafe Au Lait (7/4), Scartare (5/1), Rock And Roll King (7/1), Edward Elgar (8/1), Goodnight Charlie (8/1), Justice Knight (12/1), Gi Jayne (12/1), Minella Voucher (14/1), Poyntzpass (16/1), Bermeo (16/1)

Verdict

This looks easier than the race CAFE AU LAIT contested last time when going down to a well-handicapped rival and finishing clear of the third. Scartare is an obvious danger, whilst Minella Voucher could prove better than recent efforts suggest if supported. Edward Elgar can usually be relied upon to run well here and has each-way claims now reverting to hurdles.
