Forecasts

Shantou Village (3/1), Above Board (7/2), Bagad Bihoue (8/1), Ozzy Thomas (9/1), Florrie Boy (10/1), Henri Parry Morgan (10/1), Scoop The Pot (12/1), Toviere (12/1), Cuirassier Dempire (20/1), Quite By Chance (20/1), Marquis Of Carabas (25/1)

Verdict

The ground will need to dry out for Ozzy Thomas but he has to be shortlisted if conditions were to suit. Bagad Bihoue has to prove his stamina under a big weight and Cuirassier Dempire has to rebound from a poor run on his reappearance. Marquis of Carabas and Quite By Chance have tough tasks on these terms, but Shantou Village is nicely weighted and appeared to be recapturing his novice form last time. ABOVE BOARD is a progressive chaser who would have gone close at Bangor but for getting in too tight at the last and losing momentum. He has scored over these easy fences in the past and leaves the impression there is better still to come.
  1. Above Board
  2. Shantou Village
  3. Ozzy Thomas
