Forecast

Some Invitation (13/2), Days Of Heaven (7/1), Kapstadt (7/1), Drumcliff (10/1), Born Survivor (10/1), Shantou Village (10/1), Tommy Silver (10/1), Valseur Du Granval (12/1), Cut The Corner (14/1), Wadswick Court (14/1), Viconte Du Noyer (16/1), Henryville (16/1), Vibrato Valtat (16/1), Marquis Of Carabas (16/1), Vaniteux (22/1), Indian Stream (25/1), Roman Flight (28/1), Hammersly Lake (33/1)

Verdict
Last year's winner Days Of Heaven has some questions to answer this time and can be opposed, with runner-up from 12 months ago Valseur Du Granval deemed more likely to go well this time. Summer chaser Wadswick Court is in good health and should run well while Kapstadt is an intriguing runner have put up an excellent effort in midweek at Warwick from a 4lb higher mark than this. SOME INVITATION shaped nicely at Cheltenham last month after undergoing wind surgery and Dan Skelton's runner could have plenty more to offer over this reduced trip.
