Forecast

Mustaqbal (11/4), Silvery Moon (3/1), It's Never Enough (8/1), Visitant (10/1), Forever A Lady (10/1), Strong Steps (11/1), Zoravan (12/1), Cadeau Magnifique (12/1), Newmarket Warrior (16/1), Gworn (16/1), Tagur (25/1), Dark Crystal (25/1), Torrid (28/1), Newstead Abbey (28/1)

Verdict
Difficult to stray too far from the Carlisle winner MUSTAQBAL who bolted up under similar conditions as recently as last week. He'd have come out comfortably on top there with 6lb extra on his back, so there's no reason whatsoever to believe that the incurred penalty will prove a barrier to further success. Of the remainder Tagur looks threatening, and a fairly safe bet to make the frame after a solid run at Newcastle, whilst Zoravan can prove more effective over this longer trip (of 1m) if able to handle the testing underfoot conditions.
