Forecast

Cheltenam De Vaige (9/4), Goldslinger (9/2), Zoltan Varga (11/2), Bertie Barnes (13/2), Celma Des Bois (9/1), Kaddys Dream (10/1), Miss Adventure (10/1), Inspireus (20/1), Farmer Boy (25/1)

Verdict
A 10lb rise in the weights may not be enough to stop Richard Phillips' BERTIE BARNES who has been in fine form of late and has a very good opporutnity to complete a hat-trick. Cheltenam De Vaige returns from a break and could go well fresh on this surface, while Zoltan Varga and Miss Adventure should be thereabouts as well. Gold Slinger comes here in form and is another who warrants respect.
  1. Bertie Barnes
