Forecast

Herculean (6/4), Big Kitten (9/2), Rise Hall (11/2), Jamih (6/1), Rock Force (8/1), Jamil (16/1), Coolongolook (20/1), Rashdan (20/1), Escapability (50/1), The Throstles (50/1)

Verdict

HERCULEAN hasn't quite hit the heights expected after his impressive debut win last year, but he's been very much looked after by his patient trainer, and can make a winning handicap debut. Rise Hall was a place behind Rock Force when third on his handicap bow at York, but looked unlucky, and with that looking solid form, he appeals as the main danger to the selection.
  1. Herculean
  2. Rise Hall
  3. Rock Force
