Forecast

Napanook (11/10), Fognini (7/4), Autumn Flight (13/2), No Bills (9/1), Aristomachos (14/1), Gainsborough Hat (16/1), Rusper Dreams (50/1), Mythical Pursuits (50/1), Jagerbond (66/1), Ganton Eagle (66/1), Highwaygrey (100/1)

Verdict
A race thin on the ground with obvious contenders and from an inside draw, FOGNINI may be able to take full advantage and defy a double penalty. That will be tough, of course, but his level of form is very good in context. Autumn Flight has a poor draw and it won't be easy to get a good position from so wide with the run to the bend being short enough, but if he does overcome that then expect him to have a big say. Napanook should be thereabouts again, while Aristomachos, Gainsborough Hat and Mythical Pursuits are others of interest.
