Forecasts

Compatriot (9/4), Getonsam (4/1), Iolani (5/1), Smart Ruler (6/1), Mitcd (7/1), Mash Potato (15/2), Hey Bob (14/1), Presenting Streak (16/1), Hazy Manor (20/1), Captain Revelation (40/1), Super Charge (66/1)

Verdict

An unappealing opener with a similar contest over C&D in August providing a route into this race. Winner Chookie Royale made all on that occasion with a number of these runners in behind including the veteran Smart Ruler (third), Iolani (fourth), Hazy Manor (sixth) and the free-racing Hey Bob (ninth). However, the top-weight and recent Newton Abbot scorer COMPATRIOT is probably the safest option despite a 5lb rise in the weights, with trainer Olly Murphy 2 from 8 (25%) at Sedgefield since 2017.
