Forecast

Sea Of Mystery (2/1), Wells Gold (4/1), Theatre Stage (5/1), The Missus (8/1), Ilovemints (11/1), Third Act (12/1), Willyegolassiego (14/1), Polo The Mumm (14/1), Gaelic Flow (14/1), Slaying The Dragon (14/1), Bay Fortuna (16/1), That's Gonna Sting (16/1), Free Bounty (33/1), Time And Again (33/1), Karl Marx (33/1), Great Lover (33/1), Flow From Devon (40/1)

Verdict
Probably not quite as competitive as the numbers suggest with several of these badly out of form. Third Act is on that list but he has dropped to such a dangerous mark it is very interesting that Richard Johnson takes the ride so he is respected. Theatre Stage clearly shows more at home than he does on the track but should come good at some stage and is on the short list. SEA OF MYSTERY was such a big eye-catcher last time that he has to be the selection here. He looks a really well handicapped horse and this extra trip should be right up his street.
