Forecast

Think Positive (9/2), Commander Of Fleet (5/1), Glocca Mora (6/1), That's A Given (6/1), Kerrkenny Gold (13/2), Ferocious (8/1), Seeyouinvinnys (11/1), Column Of Fire (12/1), Design Matters (12/1), Foxy Jacks (16/1), Santana Plessis (20/1), Wolfofallstreets (25/1), A Dos No Bueno (25/1), Whatucallher (33/1), Cap'tain Youm (33/1), Tashinny (33/1), Tobias Lochlan (66/1)

Verdict
Gordon Elliott is mob-handed with four as he bids to supplement his lead in the trainers' race. The market will sort his quartet out but on paper Commander Of Fleet makes plenty appeal. Interestingly, his title rival fires just one dart at this board. The once-raced half-brother to Samcro, Think Positive. He was held in his only British start at Towcester but could have plenty more to say here. The only raider in the party is Huntingdon winner THAT'S A GIVEN and he might just have enough about him to snare this prize for Philip Hobbs with improvement likely on the back of that debut win. Seeyouinvinnys and Kerrkenny Gold are further notables.
  1. That's A Given
  2. Commander Of Fleet
  3. Think Positive
