Forecasts

Baron Du Plessis (15/8), One Of Us (9/4), Midnight Monty (9/2), Closest Friend (10/1), Elkstone (16/1), Fly Home Harry (16/1), Strumble Head (20/1), Accord (20/1)

Verdict

One or two in this that can be marked down as inconsistent and it may pay to side with ONE OF US who may benefit from a slightly less positive ride than he got on his chasing debut at Uttoxeter where he shaped well in a big field. Elkstone and Baron Du Plessis are two protagonists that are well versed in flattering to deceive and Midnight Monty makes more appeal than that pair returning from a break and wind surgery. Closest Friend is quite nicely handicapped on his old form and may well be able to make the frame again after a promising effort when last seen.
