Forecast

Sofia's Rock (4/7), Kitikat (11/4), Kreb's Cycle (9/1), Bard Of Brittany (14/1), Freedom Chimes (20/1), Auld Sod (25/1), Ocean Gale (25/1), Vanderbilt (40/1), Personal Coach (66/1), Wild Eve (100/1), Goldrapper (100/1), Dance With Kate (200/1)

Verdict
SOFIA'S ROCK had plenty about her on the level for Mark Johnston and, race-fit, appears to have been found a decent chance on first outing over timber having joined the excellent Skelton team. Southwell bumper winner Kitikat is a credible threat while Bard Of Brittany went well over C&D at a big price last time and may build on that effort.
  1. Sofia's Rock
  2. Kitikat
  3. Bard Of Brittany
