Forecast

Dream Walker (5/1), Implement (5/1), Onlyhuman (7/1), Beckwith Place (7/1), Escamillo (7/1), Tony The Gent (8/1), Escapability (10/1), No Education (10/1), Vocal Music (10/1), Chiavari (10/1), Great Grey (12/1), Wentwood (16/1), Georgian Bay (33/1), Talk Now (100/1)

Verdict
Stable stalwart TONY THE GENT won over C&D at the 2016 festival off a 2lb higher mark and there is no reason why the well-drawn five-year-old cannot pick up the winning thread once again here. Dream Walker has been running his usual gallant races in defeat since May but is always susceptible to one or two in these type of contests. Potential improver Onlyhuman is more than capable of worrying the main protagonists here while J J Feane's No Education can go well at a price.
  1. Tony The Gent
  2. Dream Walker
  3. No Education
