Forecast

Martiloo (3/1), Beeves (5/1), Looking Well (5/1), Henllan Harri (6/1), Rainy City (8/1), Lord Ballim (9/1), Takingrisks (10/1), Pain Au Chocolat (16/1), Charmix (28/1), Sadler's Risk (33/1), Maggio (40/1)

Verdict
An interesting contest as the feature on the card and there are quite a few in this that have to really prove themselves at the trip and one of those would be MARTILOO. This requires some further improvement but she travels strongly in her race winning her last two by 21L and she should enjoy the good pace set by Beeves and Henllan Harri. The former of that duo took this last year and looks sure to make a bold bid again with Lord Ballim another one who fascinates here if he can hold his jumping together. Of the Nicky Richards pair Takingrisks looks the pick over the quirky Looking Well with Charmix one to watch in the market.
