Forecast

Salto Chisco (9/4), Excellent Team (11/4), Celestial Path (3/1), Chantecler (6/1), Billy My Boy (8/1), Distant High (20/1), Penneys Hun (28/1)

Verdict
Two of the main protagonists here like to go forward in their races and it’s hoped that Billy My Boy and CELESTIAL PATH don’t set the race up for one of the closers. The latter of the named duo has shown much better form for a change of headgear and a change of tactics although he rising through the handicap he should be able to complete a hat-trick. The former will need to jump a little better to keep tabs on his front-running rival but would be a danger if he were to get a soft lead. Salto Chisco attempts to exploit a lower hurdles mark but probably needs others to falter while Excellent Team and Chantecler need to jump and settle better respectively.
