Forecast

Cafe Au Lait (9/4), Shanroe Tic Tec (11/2), Notnow Seamus (8/1), Londonia (12/1), Undisputed (12/1), Chantecler (12/1), Born For War (14/1), Nemean Lion (14/1), Jack Lamb (16/1), Barkis (16/1), Best Practice (18/1), Wildmoor Boy (25/1), Towering (33/1), Mortens Leam (40/1), Farmer Boy (40/1), Mister Kalanisi (66/1)

Verdict
A sizeable field, but plenty can be discounted. The market promises to be a useful guide for a couple of the runners including Shanroe Tic Tec (stable/handicap debut), and Jack Lamb (first start since December). Barkis was runner up in this race in 2017, so has realistic place prospects. Scarcely seen since it's perhaps notable that he remains in the care of Nicky Henderson (saddled a couple of winners here last week). However, it is another Dan Skelton trained runner who should take the beating, with CAFE AU LAIT switched back to hurdles following a winning chasing debut at Bangor last week; perhaps bidding to run up a similar sequence to the 2017 winner Petrou.
