Forecast

Lissycasey (1/1), Topofthecotswolds (9/4), General Custard (4/1), Nomination Game (16/1), Muilean Na Madog (33/1), Wild Eve (50/1)

Verdict
Lissycasey has the form in the bank and has to be given plenty of respect in what looks a winnable contest, but the Twiston-Davies yard are strating to go through the gears, as they seem to do every autumn, and maybe TOPOFTHECOTSWOLDS in a first-time hood might be the answer. She clearly has her quirks but the fact she's gone off favourite twice already suggests she has plenty of ability and maybe she can get her head in front here. Mullean Na Madog and General Custard can battle it out for third.
