Forecasts

Trongate (2/1), Clondaw Kaempfer (2/1), Cubomania (11/4), Mount Beckham (8/1), Airdrigh (16/1), Cool Valley (25/1), Le Dauphin (33/1), Jackofhearts (40/1)

Verdict

Cubomania will be popular for the Elliott/Johnson fans but he's not really bred to be jumping fences and looks opposable. If MOUNT BECKHAM can avoid bursting blood vessels then he might be the one to be with, as this looks an easier task than a few he's faced recently and should have a bit more to come. Clondaw Kaempfer and Le Dauphin would have chances if on song, but neither is to be fully trusted. Maybe Cool Valley could be the one for each-way players.
  1. Mount Beckham
  2. Cool Valley
  3. Le Dauphin
