Betting

Forecast

Ryalex (6/5), Middlebrow (3/1), Sleep In First (7/1), Halcyon Days (15/2), Instingtive (8/1), Roxyfet (33/1)

Verdict
None of these are rock solid, but RYALEX has fewer questions to answer than most, and will strip fitter for a comeback run over hurdles last month. He's preferred to Middlebrow, who undoubtedly has the class to win, but is often let down by his jumping and/or finishing effort. Roxyfet is best of the rest.
