Forecast

Trongate (11/8), Oighear Dubh (11/4), Loch Linnhe (11/2), Ever So Much (8/1), Present Lodger (10/1), Classical Milano (10/1), Charlie Snow Angel (12/1), Brother Scott (16/1), No Such Number (40/1)

Verdict
Oighear Dubh looks to have met with the full weight of the handicapper's wrath going into this, but with Richard Johnson up, perhaps he may be capable of pulling out the necessary to win again. However, TRONGATE makes greater appeal. Iain Jardine's six-year-old made a good debut over fences last month and it is worth chancing him to handle this faster ground. Loch Linnhe is on a decent mark if he is rejuvenated for a change of stables, while Classical Milano is not written off.
  1. Trongate
