Forecast

Havana Jack (5/2), Bocasien Desbois (9/2), Border Breaker (5/1), Oscar O'scar (11/2), Quick Brew (15/2), Whos De Baby (9/1), Strong Resemblance (12/1), Present Lodger (20/1), Miss Biscotti (40/1)

Verdict

The best recent form here is held by BOCASIEN DESBOIS who really should have made it 2/2 over fences last time and hails from a yard with a decent record at this track. If he avoids any blunders this time he’ll go close here. Havana Jack has been in fine form for his trainer, turning in a career-best last time although he’s paid for that win with a 10lb rise in the weights. Border Breaker is an intriguing runner for the Sam England yard who are very good at rejuvenating such types and he’s well handicapped on his past form.. Quick Brew surprised last time but has more on his plate here while Present Lodger should be respected on his past form.
  1. Bocasien Desbois
  2. Border Breaker
  3. Havana Jack
