Forecast

Numbercruncher (4/1), Robin Des People (9/2), Magic Music Man (9/2), Velvet Maker (9/1), Argot (9/1), Benemeade (9/1), Exclusive Rights (12/1), Gowanauthat (18/1), Such A Legend (20/1), Brave Jaq (25/1), Treat Yourself (33/1), Right Of Reply (50/1), Bambi Du Noyer (66/1), Gallox Bridge (66/1), As De Ferbet (66/1), Noble Friend (66/1), Jamrham (100/1), Drive The Bus (150/1)

Verdict
Last year's winner Numbercruncher holds a few of these on recent Fontwell running, but preference is for MAGIC MUSIC MAN who comes from a top yard. His fair hurdling form suggests he will suited by the trip and he arrives having improved with each run in point-to-points this year. Leicester hunter chase winner Argot will appreciate the return to 2m as will Benemeade who had some decent form in Ireland.
  1. Magic Music Man
