Forecast

Dell Oro (5/6), Who's My Jockey (13/8), Kings Ryde (5/2), Mister Serious (7/1), March Is On (12/1), You're So Right (25/1), Pontresina (33/1), Over The Arch (50/1), Dassett Gold (50/1), Miss Malarky (100/1)

Verdict
This should concern the top three with DELL ORO coming out the clear pick on BHA ratings having been raised to a mark of 136 following last week's improved effort at Cheltenham. That sets a high standard although Who's My Jockey has room to improve further and his yard have had an excellent week. King's Ryde represents last year's winning stable but his form over hurdles leaves him with an awful lot to find.
  1. Dell Oro
  2. Who's My Jockey
  3. Kings Ryde
