Forecast

Billy Merriott (6/4), Abricot De L'Oasis (13/8), The Caller (7/1), Mr Syntax (10/1), Woodfleet (16/1), Exclusive Rights (16/1), Swallowshide (50/1), Brave Jaq (50/1)

Verdict
BILLY MERRIOTT won an Open easily two starts ago and did well to run a good sort close at Newbury on his latest start. With conditions fine, he looks the one to beat. Abricot De L'Oasis managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory last time but if staying on the straight and narrow this time, looks the main danger. Old Mr Syntax and The Caller may be best of the rest.
  1. Billy Merriott
  2. Abricot De L'Oasis
  3. The Caller
