Westend Story (5/4), Lygon Rock (9/4), Jurby (3/1), Master Tradesman (7/1), Seniergues (40/1), Madame Fiona (50/1), Berlief Aramis (100/1), Prince Carn (100/1)

Verdict

Westend Story would look the one to beat on form but the excuses are wearing thin as the defeats keep stacking up, and he's clearly not one to be ploughing in on at likely short odds. JURBY gives punters a perfectly reasonable alternative to the likely favourite, as he's got form in the book, comes from a yard going well and could improve for the step up in trip. Lygon Rock is the other that holds a chance on form, with everything else needing to improve.
