Forecast

Thames Knight (5/2), Eric The Third (5/2), Intifadah (7/2), Anton Dolin (12/1), Mighty Whitey (12/1), Magical Thomas (14/1), Teescomponents Max (16/1), Hey Bob (20/1), Jeremy's Jet (25/1), Royal Beekeeper (25/1), West Class (33/1), Fred's Filly (50/1)

Verdict
THAMES KNIGHT will be particularly appealing if Celestial Path can win under a penalty in the first division of this, but even if he comes up short the fact the selection here finished 18 lengths ahead of the third when behind that rival at Worcester last time out shows he could be very well treated off the same mark here. Having had just the two starts in handicap hurdles further improvement is highly likely, and he is taken to get the better of Eric The Third, a comfortable winner over fences last time and Intifadah for the Skeltons.
